I recently installed
Debian Jessie 8.6 as a clean install.
The only thing I kept was my
After the installation finished, I wanted to connect my bluetooth headphones but they couldn't be paired.
Checking the status of the service:
service bluetooth status
Dec 18 13:03:55 user-laptop bluetoothd: Bluetooth daemon 5.23 Dec 18 13:03:58 user-laptop systemd: Started Bluetooth service. Dec 18 13:03:58 user-laptop bluetoothd: Starting SDP server Dec 18 13:03:58 user-laptop bluetoothd: Bluetooth management interface 1.6 initialized Dec 18 13:03:59 user-laptop bluetoothd: Sap driver initialization failed. Dec 18 13:03:59 user-laptop bluetoothd: sap-server: Operation not permitted (1)
I tried without success:
- Purging all bluetooth packages and installing them again.
- Following Thorsten's message from the Debian mailing list.
- scan on
pulseaudiobluetooth packages and repeated previous step. (and removed them again)
step #2, the device is paired and connected successfully, but the sound is still going out through the laptop, instead of the headphones.
The strange thing is that this worked with Jessie 8.4 out of the box.
What could the problem be?
