    Re: My Solution: Hardy 8.04 and Bluetooth headsets

    I just manually removed anything I could remember installing - bluetooth, Bluz, anything to do with sound like pulse audio, ad nauseum.

    I'm hoping 8.10 fixes all this natively.

    Meanwhile I'll evaluate some hardware that allegedly lets me use my cordless phone with Skype - not elegant, but if it works what can I say.

    So very interesting what works 'out of the box' and what doesn't with the various OSes.

    Re: My Solution: Hardy 8.04 and Bluetooth headsets

    i followed all the steps. at step #10. when pressing volume up. to get it to ask for pin. that never worked.
    i even tried the bluez-pin in address name etc. it did ask me for pin to connect. but that wasnt doing anything.

    and in my sound config. i did change vol and mic for the device.

    when i finally got the system to ask ME. for the pin.
    it was when i did the test at step #14.

    worked great.
    staticy in the test. ill recharge headset a little more thry and tweak.

    thanks for this tutorial!!

    The Bluetooth problems still exist in 8.10, although in a slightly different form.

    The end result is the same though; it seems people are having problems connecting Bluetooth headsets.

    See...

    Also despite this i should get something in Skype and although I can see the device in the sounds config in skype it doesnt work - just keeps saying 'problem with Audio playback' - it works fine onthe main laptop speakers and mic.....

    any thoughts?

    I can still record voice, e.g. with arecord, and also play the recorded file with aplay on my notebook speakers. If I try to play the same file on my headset, the headset turns on, but the file will not be played. The headset remains turned on until I kill aplay...

    Any ideas what's going wrong? Has anybody had (and maybe solved) the same problem? Thanks for any replies.

    No idea.

    Same problem here! I can record just fine and play it back on my desktop speakers, but I can't hear anything through my headset except dead air.

    I used this walkthrough to hook up this headset to my laptop yesterday and it worked great. Thanks!

    Warning: rate is not accurate (requested = 8000Hz, got = 16000Hz)
    please, try the plug plugin (-Dplug:bluetooth)

    What does this mean?
    I think it means your headset doesn't support the default rate of 8000Hz. Try

    $ arecord -D bluetooth -r 16000 -f s16_LE test.wav

    Hope this helps.

    Hi there

    I still haven't solved my problem yet:

    I have no clue what's going wrong and would still be grateful for any hints. If I type 'hciconfig -a', I get this output:

    Re: My Solution: Hardy 8.04, Bluetooth headsets & Skype

    Hi there,

    has anybody tried this installation on Jaunty 9.04? I have recently upgraded from Hardy to Jaunty and there I am struggling with this step:

    Apparently, these drivers do not exist anymore in jaunty. Does anyone know whether any other drivers replace them? Maybe someone knows how to get a bluetooth headset running with Skype in a different way? Thanx a lot in advance for your answer!

    I actually got my headset working with Skype, but the person on the other end said all he could hear was static... I guess I will look at that issue later.

    I haven't tried this specifically with Skype, but got a bluetooth headset to work with Ekiga earlier today: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1152229. Much more point and click (after you upgrade the relevant packages)

    I know Skype doesn't recognize PulseAudio, but you can go from there and interface with ALSA.
