How can I redirect sound to bluetooth headset

Asked by Daniel on 2009-01-17

I've been trying to use my bluetooth headset to hear music and to connect to skype without any luck.

I reviewed some helps, but doesnt seems to work. I have the following so far:

Ubuntu intrepid
I can pair my laptop with my headset and I tested the bluetooth with other devises and it works perfectely.
I have pulse audio working good and I have also installed some additional tools to manage it: padevchooser
I would like to use my bluetooth headset through Pulse Audio to make it transparent for my applications.

Thanks for your help

Daniel

Hi,

padevchooser seems to be abandoned and is not recommended anymore. You should use pavucontrol instead!

Here's my configuration:

more /etc/asound.conf
pcm.bluetooth {
       type bluetooth
       device 00:0D:3C:B0:1F:D1
       profile "hifi"
}

And a little script that I call "connect-bluetooth.sh" that I have in the gnome-panel.

#!/bin/sh
aplay -D bluetooth /usr/share/sounds/question.wav
pactl load-module module-alsa-sink device=bluetooth
pavucontrol
sleep 5
