Well, I found a workaround solution to the issue. I posted a similar question over on the BlueZ developer mail list and got several responses. It seems that there was a regression bug introduced somewhere in Linux Kernel 3.0 that was related to the Bluetooth Secure Simple Pairing (SSP) protocol used by Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR devices. The bug prevents ...

Finally the headset is usable now. I just did an update recently, also additionally I've updated from the ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/ppa sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/ppa sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y Now the usb headset is on the input and output tabs.

You'll need to install an app called pavucontrol and use it to set the default device for Skype to that headset.

As far as I know PulseAudio is an audio server with the ability to route sound in the way you want. Install PulseAudio Volume Control to be able to change where inputs and outputs go. sudo apt-get install pavucontrol In this manner I have routed Skype output to my headset only and my mic solely into Skype, Whilst having everything else running through ...

As of Ubuntu 10.04, uinput module that handles such buttons is not started by default. To fix the situation: Stop bluetooth service sudo service bluetooth stop Enable uinput module sudo modprobe uinput Start bluetooth service back again sudo service bluetooth start That should fix the issue temporarily, until restart. To fix it permanently, run: echo ...

I have solved it by following the steps below: open the Sound Settings; select the device in the "Play sound through" pane; select "High Fidelity Playback (A2DP)" in the "Mode" combo box; make sure the "Mute" checkbox is unchecked.

Windows and Linux are different. There is no way in Linux to specifically set one application to output from one device while having another application output from another device. The functionality just does not exist in Ubuntu at this time.

Where I have had audio problems and connection issues I have found the using Pulse Audio Volume Controller usually helps if you are nervous of using alsamixer which is still good Here you can set what inputs and levels in a little clearer method First install it in a terminal sudo apt-get install pavucontrol Then hit alt + f2 and type pulse and up should ...

OP has solved the problem themselves and posted as a comment I did manage to figure it out, although not a great solution. For some reason if I switched the sound to mono I was able to get the microphone working.

I had the same issue just now when I was trying to pair my lenovo z570 with my nokia bh503 headset. I found it impossible with the default manager, but then I installed blueman. You can do that via the terminal (CTRL+ALT+T): sudo apt-get install blueman or via the Software-Center: With that installed I ran bluetooth manager from the applications list, ...

For some more settings I would advice to install pavucontrol. It saved me some troubles diagnosing sound issues. It also will list any possible output where Ubuntu sound sometimes forgets to show outputs that should be available (though it keeps getting better: HDMI used to not show up; 1 update after 12.10 release it started showing up. You too will be ...

The G35 (and G930) are what is known as a virtual 7.1 headset. So Pulseaudio is correctly identifying it as a stereo headset, as it contains only two speakers - left and right. Under windows, the driver does some trickery to make it seem as if the headset is 7.1, but it doesn't actually have the physical speakers. So alas, you're out of luck with this ...

In a standard Bluetooth setup we can change the profile of a Bluetooth audio device from the Hardware tab in Sound settings: Alternatively we can use the command line to switch profiles: pactl set-card-profile <name or index of card> <profile> After we had chosen the profile to "Off" it will not be shown in the Output tab as a valid audio ...

The behaviour you observe indicates that these controls are not implemented in your Spotify client. Media key control via a Bluetooth headset is transmitted via DBus MPRIS protocol to the player to be further processed there. You can test this by running Rhythmbox which should have a full implementation of the MPRIS standard (but unforutnately a Spotify ...

The short answer You have to use special branded Bluetooth dongles. Have a look at the How can I use aptX then? section of this answer or browse the aptx.com site for transmitters. Questions not answered in this post: How can I check and verify an established connection for the codec it uses? The longer answer Licensing issues The aptX ...

Managing soundcards and audio devices USB and Bluetooth audio devices are individual sound cards, which means that connecting a Bluetooth headset doesn't work like connecting a headset via 3.5mm audio jack, where jack sensing assumes that you want to play audio through the recently connected headset instead of the laptop speakers. Therefore when adding new ...

It seems to me that you are using a custom kernel, since linux 3.2.7, as listed in your uname -a output has a higher version number than the current release 12.04 kernel (3.2.0-29). (It's also lower than the current 12.10 kernel). Looking at the output of lsmod we can see that there is no module snd_usb_audio in the list of loaded modules. You need that to ...

It sounds like your headphones have a single jack that includes both the headphone and mic connections. This is called a "4-position" or "4-pin" connector. As you have discovered, unless your computer has a plug designed to use one of those connectors, only one or the other will work. The 4-pin jacks are more common on smaller devices that benefit more from ...

I am not sure about Xubuntu, I have Kubuntu. I was able to get the sound and mic on my headsets working by opening a terminal with Ctrl+Alt+T and then installing it with sudo apt-get install pavucontrol Start pavucontrol by typing pavucontrol in the terminal. It will open up a sound control window. Now make sure that duplex is activated by clicking ...

Even if it produces sound under Linux, many of the features listed such as "5.1 surround" and "vibration" are not going to work if the company has not released Linux drivers. Most USB speakers and headphones will work under Ubuntu using generic speaker drivers to produce stereo sound. I was unable to unable to find any reports of users getting these ...
