I spent the best part of a day trying to get my Bose Quiet comfort 35 headphones to connect via bluetooth and after an eternity they finally connect.
So now they are connected they only work in HSP/HFP and not in A2DP.
I have read all the posts about A2DP not working properly with Pulseaudio and bluez but that seems to be a fault with all the installs. However my headphones work perfectly fine on the desktop PC with Mint 18.1 installed and Kernel 4.12
That is what I was running on the laptop and it didn't work so I upgraded to kernel 4.13.5 and Mint 18.2 and still no luck.
If I run $pacmd ls it tells me that A2DP is not available on the device so for some reason it's not detecting the headset properly?
