Bluetooth common connecting problem with headset

Post by Orzeszty » Sat Dec 09, 2017 9:50 am

I have common problem with connecting the headset with bluetooth on my HP probook G450.
I have trying to connect it via blueman and it doesnt work.

I'm trying to do this:
sudo pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover
But it show me error:
Failure: Module initialization failed

I do this solution for this kind of error:
"Edit the file:


and comment out (with an # at the beginning of the line) the following line:

#load-module module-bluetooth-discover

now edit the file:


and after the lines:

if [ x”$SESSION_MANAGER” != x ] ; then
/usr/bin/pactl load-module module-x11-xsmp “display=$DISPLAY session_manager=$SESSION_MANAGER” > /dev/null

add the following line:

/usr/bin/pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover

This way the Pulse audio’s Bluetooth modules will not be downloaded at boot time but after x11 is started."

but still don't working.

I don't know what to do. My headset can be paired but it is disconnecting after a while and when i turn on sound somewhere. Please help me with this problem.
