I got my 13" macbook pro retina laptop pretty much all working on Ubuntu apart from bluetooth.

I can pair a device no problem. I pair it as a Headset Service. But I cannot see any audio device in the bluetooth settings.

if i do

pactl list cards short
0 alsa_card.pci-0000_00_1b.0 module-alsa-card.c

Is shown, and nothing else..

So I have it paired, how do I get a output device to show?

I know, It was not a bug, I did not have the packaged installed otherwise I would have reported it as a bug. Thanks – Sc0rian Feb 23 '13 at 9:17

I fixed it.

I installed bluez and installed pulseaudio-module-bluetooth (this showed up my headset). I then was able to get it working, and selected the A2DP profile. Now all works.
