Bluetooth sound Failed to change profile to a2dp_sink

Post by steven »

Hi

I recently switched to 18.2 and have been experiencing issues when pairing wireless speaker ever since

The speaker pairs itself perfectly (Harman Kardon Onyx), but once it's paired I can't get it to be recognized as a High Fidelity Playback A2DP Sink device, every time I try to do it from here:

It will go straight to the built in Speakers option and only work as a headset giving terrible sound performance

I also installed pavucontrol and no luck there either

This a2dp.py script was what worked for me:

unistsll blueberry and install blueman.
launch terminal, run bluetoothctl
in the bluetooth shell, run agent on
get response:
Agent registered

then you can chage the profile now in blueman gui.

after that you can type exit in the bluetooth shell to get out from it
