How do you make Ubuntu 16 automatically switch sound output to Bluetooth headphones when they connect?
Currently, my Bluetooth and sound work perfectly, except whenever I want to use my headphones, I have to open settings, go to sound, and select the headset for output. I'd prefer it to work like cell phones do, where if a Bluetooth headset is connected, it automatically switches to that.
This is similar to this old question, but Ubuntu 16 doesn't come with Pulseaudio, nor do I want to screw up my perfectly working Alsa setup by installing it. I did try some of the methods suggested there, and naturally none of them work anymore.
