Debian Wheezy and Bluetooth Headphones (A2DP)
Posted by dammitjim on Thu 3 Jan 2013 at 18:39
For years I have been trying to get my bluetooth headphones to work on Debian and enlightenment e17. No, I hadn't tried very hard, but I had attempted this multiple times. By no means am I an expert on how bluetooth works and I understand that this howto will have you download a lot of heavy packages.

Now to the steps:
1) Install the following packages (I don't know if you need bluez or blueman):
sudo apt-get install gnome-bluetooth pulseaudio pulseaudio-module-bluetooth pavucontrol blueman bluetooth bluez

2) Create the file ~/.asoundrc
pcm.!default plug:pulse
pcm.pulse {
type pulse
}

3) Edit /etc/default/bluetooth to enable the following
HID2HCI_ENABLED=1
HID2HCI_UNDO=1

4) Reboot the system

5) Add systray to shelf (e17's requirement)

6) run gnome-bluetooth
sudo bluetooth-applet

7) Pair the headphones using the applet in the systray

8) Use Pulse Audio Volume Control to Select High Fidelity Playback (A2AP) and turn off the Built-in Audio Profile Off

I also wanted to add that most recently I have been using a command line utility called bluetoothctl in which one just runs the command connect and it will connect to your bluetooth device.

Been trying for a while to get my bluetooth headphones working with wheezy 7.4. I had it all installed except gnome-bluetooth which did the trick along with the mods to the config files. Thanks a bunch.

I run into some problems, so get my device address with:

hcitool con
Connections:
> ACL 90:03:B7:5E:B5:9A handle 256 state 1 lm MASTER AUTH ENCRYPT


and then I put it on my .asoundrc:

pcm.bluetooth {
type bluetooth
device "90:03:B7:5E:B5:9A"
profile "auto"
}


seems to work better this way
