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/
echo 'load-module module-switch-on-connect' >> /etc/pulseaudio/
pulseaudio -D
usermod -a -G plugdev <username>
modprobe btusb
hciconfig hci0 up

At this point you should be able to see it

hcitool dev

Also, you should be able to see your headset if it's in visible mode:

hcitool scan

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.
