I have a plantronics bluetooth headset, and until yesterday I could use it without any problem. However, today it suddenly stopped working (maybe related to the last software update I did). I can still connect/disconnect my headset, but it doesn't show up in pulse audio anymore. I read through various posts that describes kind of the same problem, but none of the suggested solutions worked. I get following error in the syslog:

Any help would be much appreciated. I'm using Ubuntu 12.04.

Thanks, Kim

Did you try if removing the device in Bluetooth settings and then re-pairing solves the issue? –  Takkat Oct 13 '12 at 15:39
    
I did try that and it didn't work. There is a very similar bug (link), so I added my information to that one. The error is different though (Badly formated ... AT+XEVENT), but let's see if anything turns up. –  Kim Marivoet Oct 13 '12 at 17:40
    
This is a promising find indeed. However I cannot confirm it here (Jabra/Philips SHB7102). –  Takkat Oct 13 '12 at 17:50

I had the same issue, this helped:

sudo apt-get-install pulseaudio-module-bluetooth

and then reboot, restart bluetoothd, etc, etc, and then your headset is visible.
