Hello.

I have updated world today, and seen that bluez has been upgraded to 5.12. This has broken blueman (expected), but I don't know how to connect to my headset with another way. I have tried bluetoothctl, my adapter and the headset are recognized, paired and trusted ok. I have a bluetooth mouse too that works perfectly.

I have noticed this in /var/log/messages:

Jan 30 18:37:15 smug bluetoothd[1390]: a2dp-sink profile connect failed for 00:18:91:D0:7A:24: Protocol not available

even though my headset is A2DP-able.

How can I fix this? I have tried the commands given on the AUR bluetooth page (mainly how to use bluetoothctl), I have tried installing gnome-bluetooth and pulling gnome-bluetooth-applet-git from AUR, I have the applet icon but I still can't connect to my headset.

Thanks for any help.

Hi,

It looks a little bit like an error I had in the past. See here: Can't open input device

Is the uinput kernel module loaded?

Hello,

Thanks for your answer. I have uinput compiled in the kernel. With bluetoothctl I have

I have reemerged pulseaudio in case it helped, but it didn't: when restarting pulseaudio I got

According to http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/PulseAudio/Notes/5.0/, the current 4.0 release does not support bluez 5, and it seems even 5.0 is not going to support HFP. And I heard ALSA cannot support bluez5 without pulseaudio...

Is it true? Can anyone confirm? I can't find any information.

I thought the blueman project was dead, 1.23 is very old... but it looks like 2.0 is coming...

I recently did a big update. I remember blocking Pulseaudio-4 because I ran into the total Bluetooth mess. I was running Pulse-2.x for a while just to keep everything working.

I just did the big gnome/pulse/bluez update. I unmerged blueman and tried bluedevil (QT/KDE); really they're just frontends and bluetoothctl works pretty well by itself.

I get these errors constantly when trying to reconnect my headset:

Code:
Mar 28 10:45:55 [bluetoothd] a2dp-sink profile connect failed for 34:DF:2A:09:A5:D0: Protocol not available
Mar 28 10:46:01 [pulseaudio] [pulseaudio] bluez5-util.c: Properties changed in a device which information is unknown or invalid
                - Last output repeated twice -
Mar 28 10:48:47 [pulseaudio] [pulseaudio] bluez5-util.c: Properties changed in unknown device
Mar 28 10:48:47 [pulseaudio] [pulseaudio] bluez5-util.c: Properties changed in a device which information is unknown or invalid


I'm running pulseaudio-5.0, bluez-5.15. Anyone get this whole chain working?

Have the same problem. Everything "just works" after a reboot but things stop working after a suspend/resume cycle, with exactly the same kind of errors as reported here.

Using bluez-5.18, pulseaudio-5.0-r1, gentoo-sources-3.12.13.

Same problem here with:

  • net-wireless/bluez-5.21-r1
  • media-sound/pulseaudio-5.0-r2
  • 3.14.14-gentoo


That thing sucks! The bluetooth subsystem is required for some equipment for disabled people and it is broken for a long time. It seems nobody really care about it. Any bug reports?

And I must add the gnome gui to manage that thing is just a big joke. Anyone really tests this stuff before releasing it in the field?

I reported the problem as bug 520710

It seems the problem disappeared after I did a pulseaudio restart as suggested in the bug report. However, the only remaining problem is the connection doesn't establish itself automatically when I power on the bluetooth audio device, I still have to manually connect (not pairing, just connect) the device.
