I have a laptop with Mint/Mate and bluetooth speakers. I can connect to the speakers using the bluetooth GUI. Then I click on the shortcut to the sound preferences GUI (
mate-volume-control inside) and in the "output" tab, I pick the bluetooth speakers as output. Alright, this works fine.
However, each time the speakers are disconnected / reconnected, I need to go through that sound setting again.
Is there a GUI way to specify that the bluetooth speakers are the default output so that once they're connected, they take priority?
I also tried with
pavucontrol, clicking "set as fallback" as described in this answer but it does just the same: it outputs through the bluetooth speakers when I click, but I need to do it again every time. Is this expected behaviour?
