I am able to successfully pair with my bluetooth headset (Motorola S305), and connect to Audio Sink. However, it does not show up in PulseAudio (in any way I ask it), and I can't switch the audio profile (HSP/HFP, A2DP, Off) away from Off.


Run the command gksudo pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover and see if that helps.

  • Did not add the device to PulseAudio and now I can't connect to Audio Sink ("Connection Failed: Stream setup failed" from blueman). – AstraLuma Jun 2 '14 at 16:57
  • Yes, I occasionally get similar errors. Try restarting bluetooth (sudo service bluetooth restart? – Tim Jun 2 '14 at 16:58
  • Restarting bluetooth doesn't change anything. – AstraLuma Jun 2 '14 at 17:10
  • That normally works for me, I don't know I'm afraid. – Tim Jun 2 '14 at 17:45
