Trying to play music to my bluetooth headset..
I have a Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 Plus Bluetooth which comes with a bluetooth module. All I needed was to compile with bt support and load the kernel module.
/etc/init.d/bluetooth start echo 'load-module module-bluetooth-discover' >> /etc/pulseaudio/default.pa echo 'load-module module-switch-on-connect' >> /etc/pulseaudio/default.pa pulseaudio -D usermod -a -G plugdev <username> modprobe btusb hciconfig hci0 up
At this point you should be able to see it
Also, you should be able to see your headset if it's in visible mode:
Then pair with it
# pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover # bluetoothctl -a [bluetooth]# power on [bluetooth]# agent on [bluetooth]# default-agent [bluetooth]# scan on [bluetooth]# pair <dev> [bluetooth]# trust <dev> [bluetooth]# connect <dev>
If all is ok, you should now see the headset as a sink in pulseaudio.
