I own several bluetooth headsets that I primarily use with my android devices. A couple days a go, I tried to connect one of them to my Maverick box. To connection process went smoothly, and soon, the headset is listed on the sound seting page, with Telephony Duplex (HSP/HF) profile as its’ default . Unfortunately switching the profile from Telephony Duplex (HSP/HFP) to High Fidelity (A2DP) crashed pulseaudio, and it automatically reverted back to HSP/HFP.
If this problem happens to you, there is a small change on a config file that we need to do. Find and open /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf with your favorite text editor
$ sudo nano /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf
Under [General], find the line:
uncomment, and change the line to look like this:
Save, restart the bluetooth service
$ sudo service bluetooth restart
..restart pulseaudio -D
# pulseaudio -k # pulseaudio -D
Open the sound setting page, go to the Hardware tab, and change the sound profile from HSP/HFP to A2DP.
