I know this was asked a lot of times, but honestly I've tried everything that I could find over the internet and still couldn't resolve this.
I am a beginner user of Ubuntu 20.04 and I am having issues setting A2DP profile for a pair of bluetooth headset, and the quality is very bad.
- I have paired, trusted and connected the headphones via terminal
connect, didn't work
- also installed
Bluemanand did the same process there again with no luck
After this I've tried to:
- set the profile A2DP firstly from OS GUI that didn't work
- then I've tried from
Bluemanbut no success here either ->
(Failed to change profile to a2dp_sink)
pavucontroland tried again from there - in
pavucontrolI go to Config tab and in headphone's profile dropdown I can see
High Fidelity Playback (A2DP Sink)(unavailable)so of course, I cannot set it here also
I have also checked
pacmd list-cards, checked the
index of headphones, then
pacmd set-card-profile <index> a2dp_sink but I get
Failed to set card profile to 'a2dp_sink'.. I've also tried to
sudo pacmd set-card-profile <index> a2dp_sink and now I get
No PulseAudio daemon running, or not running as session daemon. PulseAudio is installed, I've checked with
I've edited the
/etc/bluetooth/audio.conf file and added this line in the end of it:
Disable=Headset, this didn't work. I've also tried to add same line in
main.conf - no success.
bluez installed, I've also enabled this line
Name = BlueZ in
/etc/bluetooth/main.conf, again nothing.
/etc/bluetooth/main.conf I've also uncommented
#MultiProfile = off and changed it to
MultiProfile = multiple, nothing happened.
So after mixing all the steps above and restarted bluetooth and re paired headphone a million times, I gave up and I'm writing for help.
Please give any hint on what could be the issue.
