My bluetooth headset works fine. Audio sink works. Everything work. But the problem is that I need to connect it manually to the PC:
- click on bluetooth icon near the time on kde taskbar => known devices => Connect
It used to connect automatically just a month ago with standard debian installation/updates. I don't know why it got broken. I didn't install any bluetooth-related packages nor change bluetooth-related configuration files.
What I did to fix my problem:
- purged and reinstalled all bluetooth-related packages (see below).
- added a line load-module module-switch-on-connect to /etc/pulse/default.pa as described here
- created a file /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf with a line AutoConnect=true and restarted bluetooth service afterwards, as said here
script (from askubuntu) does not work. I get this message:
Browsing 00:18:09:29:XX:XX ... Sink bluez_sink.00_18_09_29_XX_XX does not exist.
How to make it to be able to connect to bluetooth headset automatically when it goes online? I feel like the solution is easy.
Debian 8.6, kde 4.14.2. Packages used: bluedevil, bluetooth, bluez, pulseaudio-module-bluetooth.
