I use a Motorola S305 headset and a Motorola DC800 audio gateway (connects to a
Stereo across the room with wireless Bluetooth). I run KDE in a Debian testing
I have the following versions:
IOgear CBU421 Bluetooth 2.1 USB Micro Adapter
The setup works OK mostly. I have to restart the Bluetooth daemon every morning
because the connection is lost over night for some reason. The pulse audio
setup is mostly default as I remember. It just works. Pulse is the only way I
have found to use Bluetooth with all software without much hassle. Just a
setting in the pavucontrol to route the audio to the Bluetooth device the first
time a program is run. Pulse then remembers where to send the audio the next
time. KDE has a tray icon where you setup the the pairing for the Bluetooth
devices. Since I never turn the DC800 off I have to use the KDE tray program to
reconnect after I restart the Bluetooth daemon.
