comment Screen brightness isn't taking effect on a Lenovo Z570
This worked for me with Xubuntu 14.10 on a ThinkPad T520 (the problem only occurred after I set up Bumblebee), but for some reason it made Xfce's Whisker Menu stop working. I ended up just removing the Whisker Menu panel item, but it would be nice to have a fix for that as well.

comment pavucontrol doesn't show Bluetooth headset
OK, it appears that it is not necessary to add load-module module-bluetooth-discover to default.pa. After doing so, trying to start PulseAudio fails to start, giving the error Module "module-bluetooth-discover" should be loaded once at most. Refusing to load. Everything is working if I only add the line for module-switch-on-connect to default.pa and remove the preexisting line for module-switch-on-port-available.

OK, pacmd list-modules isn't showing module-bluetooth-discovery or module-switch-on-connect. Perhaps another package is needed?

Shouldn't it be module-bluetooth-discovery (y on the end), from what I see in Google search results? Also, do other packages have to be installed in order to load those modules, and if so, which? When I run modprobe module-bluetooth-discovery or modprobe module-switch-on-connect (as root), it doesn't find the modules in question. Are these "modules" different from kernel modules? And should the existing line load-module module-switch-on-port-available in /etc/pulse/default.pa be removed/commented out?

OK, sound worked after installing pulseaudio-module-bluetooth and restarting pulseaudio. There's one issue though - I can't control volume using the laptop's multimedia keys. When I hit up or down, the volume OSD changes but the actual sound level doesn't. In pavucontrol, I don't see any volume settings changing, for the Bluetooth headset, for the speakers/headphone jack, or for an individual program.

That was it, it seems to be working just fine now!

Please take a look at the edit I made above. I may have made some headway on the source of the error, but I'm not sure how to fix it.

I have only an Intel integrated card, which is why I'm using the mesa driver (or whatever the default is, I haven't touched the graphics card configuration). In any case, I tried running the command ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so.1 /usr/lib/libGL.s0.1, but it had no discernable effect.
