I am using Bluetooth 4.99 & bluez.

My audio device is paired successfully. However, on the second attempt to connect there is no auto pairing. I have to issue:

bluez-test-audio connect <address>

each and every time to reconnect.

All values for adapter annd device are correct in /var/lib/bluetooth.

Spent hours/days on this! Help please!


root@debian:~# dir /var/lib/bluetooth/00:1B:10:00:05:94 classes did features lastused manufacturers profiles trusts config eir lastseen linkkeys names sdp

edit: I enabled Autoconnect in audio.conf - makes no difference ... or should I delete the whole bluetooth settings, and restart the pairing again?

I'd really appreciate some help on this.

Can you add the contents of /var/lib/bluetooth to your question? – Aaron Hill Feb 10 '13 at 13:33
Here's what's in /var/lib/bluetooth for the specific adapter: – castalla Feb 10 '13 at 14:55
oops - added above – castalla Feb 10 '13 at 15:01

Try this, add:

Disable = Media

into "General" section of /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf

with this my bluetooth headsets connect/reconnect again without problem.

It's not from my head, I found a hint in one post on spanish raspberry pi forum.
