Using Mint 17 + MATE here. My bluetooth headset (Plantronics Backbeat Go2) is connected just fine with my system, but there are several manual steps I have to take to make this work that I would very much like to have automated:
- After every reboot I have to run pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover in the terminal to get the device to connect at all. I tried putting this in a shell script to run on start up, but no dice :(
- My headset connects automatically with no issues, but it always defaults to Telephony Duplex or even Off instead of A2DP; I've tried and failed with several different strategies to force A2DP :(
- Force the BT headset to be the default output device. Tried several strategies here, too... unfortunately every time I connect the headset the index from pacmd seems to change, so I can't force a default in the PA conf file set-default-sink that way. And using the listed name doesn't seem to work either - if the headset is not present, it switches to the speakers and doesn't switch back if the headset connects :(
Thanks for any advice you might have on resolving these issues!
