Try "hciconfig hci0 version"

If the Manufacturer: field reports anything other than Cambridge Silicon Radio (CSR), you need a new dongle. The BlueZ/bluetooth-alsa people really need to update their FAQ from saying "CSR chipset reccommended" to "CSR chipset required".

Which reminds me, I need to order a CellLink BTA-6030 - It's one of the only Class 1 Bluetooth 2.0 dongles out there, and it's also pretty much the only CSR-based BT2.0 one out there.

Code:

# hciconfig hci0 version
hci0:   Type: USB
        BD Address: 00:02:72:C3:DD:5D ACL MTU: 377:10 SCO MTU: 16:0
        HCI Ver: 1.2 (0x2) HCI Rev: 0xa LMP Ver: 1.2 (0x2) LMP Subver: 0x309
        Manufacturer: Broadcom Corporation (15)


when I looked at the bluez website before I got my dongle they said it was supported. Oh well, guess thats my problem at least.

Non-CSR chipsets are supported for pretty much anything other than headsets. Apparently headset audio works quite differently than most other BT connections. In fact, SCO audio can be routed to PCM outputs on most Bluetooth chips rather than to the host controller (i.e. HCI), and for some reason the crackheads at most manufacturers other than CSR make routing to PCM the default. In addition, the method for changing this mapping is apparently not standardized. CSR is the only manufacturer who has released the info needed to map SCO audio properly.

In general, when talking about Linux, Broadcom products should be avoided at all costs. I bought an IOGear BT dongle and returned it the minute I discovered it was Broadcom based.

Hi,

I just setup my bt-headset to work with xmms, skype, aplay etc on SLACKWARE with kernel 2.6.14.2. xmms sound quality is great, skype might be better.

BT-Headset: Jabra 250v
USB: Built-In IBM ThinkPad X31

After 7-8 meters the quality is getting worse, but it is still OK.

xmms stops playing sometimes after a song and btsco shows this message:
Code:
i/o needed: connecting sco...
Can't connect SCO audio channel
: Software caused connection abort


after pressing play button, everything is goes on without problems.


howto:
Code:

<turn on bluetooth>
# modprobe snd_bt_sco
# modprobe sco
# modprobe snd-emu10k1
# esdctl stop
# hciconfig hci0 voice 0x0060
# btsco -r <btaddr>


volume up, volume down and phone button are identified.

thanks for all comments, it was very useful.

M.

Hi,

I'm having some problem with a fresh install of gentoo. It seems that the btsco-cvs needs libtool 1.5.6, and it is not compatible with the actual 1.5.20 in portage.
BTW, I'm not sure, but there are probably some problem with the 2.6.14 kernels too.

Also, with the split ebuilt, I cannot download bluetooth-alsa-cvs... where I can find this? After many tries my ebuild failed to download... where I can find this?

Thank you

Hi,
I am trying to get a Jabra BT500 working with my laptop (and especially Skype). Followed the instructions on the first page and my headset is connected - according to kbluetoothd. However, I can't hear any sound when playing something with aplay.
All I get is a short beep when the headset is done. I removed USB2.0 now from the kernel (2.6.13-r3) as this solved a similar problem for someone else, but it makes no difference for me. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Output of btsco:
Code:

btsco 00:07:A4:BD:6D:4B 1 -v
btsco v0.4c
Device is 1:0
Voice setting: 0x0060
RFCOMM channel 1 connected
speaker volume: 11 mic volume: 15
i/o needed: connecting sco...
connected SCO channel
Done setting sco fd
recieved AT+VGS=11
Sending up speaker change 11
speaker volume: 11 mic volume: 15
driver is not in use
disconnected SCO channel

nachtmann: better get the new ebuild from the address in the first post,
It took me a day , and an email to grasp that the ebuild was changed,
after that it should install fine :-)

(still not tested with my headset, dam libdbus ... should complete emerging soon..)

Nivw: Nope, that didnt work. It just removed the "cd" errormessage, which was irrelevant.
I got it fixed by adding "libtoolize --copy --force" above the line "./bootstrap" in the ebuild....

edit: so, I finally got everything set up, but I have the same problem as many in here: I dont get any sound. The log-message say I should get sound, but XMMS doenst show any progress when pressing play, even though it doesnt freeze. I can hear that something happens to my headset, as I get a little crack when I press play. Right now my batteries are emtpy (lol), so I have to wait a little bit until I can try anything else.
BTW: I have a Logitech Mobile Pro Headset, using a Terratec Typhoon dongle, as recommended by the awesome german pc-magazine "c't".

I got to the same resault as nachtmann.
I can upload the output which looks similar to the one posted.

I use the Zonet 6100C dongle and a logitech headset
I think we need to post this issue at the bug link in the first post.

I will wait for a day , to see if hothead replays here , and then post in the bug system

Take a look at the readme for the supported headsets:
Code:
vim /usr/share/doc/btsco-cvs-0.4-r1/README.gz


If you've followed the readme and it doesn't work talk to the pople of the bluetooth-alsa project.
http://bluetooth-alsa.sourceforge.net/
Unfortunately I can't help you with any hardware related problems.


nachtmann's output from btsco looks fine.
Did you set the headset as output device in xmms?
Options -> Settings -> Output- Plugin (Alsa) -> Configure -> Audio Device ('BT Headset' for me)


by the way here's an initscript to start the headset:
(save under /etc/init.d/headset and make executable 'chmod +x /etc/ini.d/heaset')
Code:

#!/sbin/runscript
# Copyright 1999-2005 Gentoo Foundation
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
# $Header: $

depend() {
        need bluetooth alsasound
}

checkconfig() {
        # check that the configuration file has been configured.
        if [ -z "$BDADDR" ]; then
                eerror "You should setup BDADDR in /etc/conf.d/headset."
                return 1
        fi

        if ! [ -d /sys/module/snd_bt_sco ]; then
                ebegin "Loading bluetooth-alsa kernel module (snd_bt_sco)."
                        /sbin/modprobe snd-bt-sco
                eend $? || return 1
        fi
}

start() {
        checkconfig || return 1

        ebegin "Connecting to headset"
                start-stop-daemon --start \
                --make-pidfile --pidfile /var/run/btsco2 \
                --background --exec /usr/bin/btsco2 -- $BDADDR
                sleep 1
                ps -C btsco2 >/dev/null
        eend $?
}

stop() {
        ebegin "Stopping btsco2 daemon"
                start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --pidfile /var/run/btsco2
        eend ${?}

}



put your headset address into /etc/conf.d/headset
Code:
BDADDR="xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx"

Thanks for the code (I am real keen on software reuse :->

My headset doesnt appear on the list - rather a privios module,
but I think - it does work

Is anybody filing a bug or got an idea?

This retarded headset is annoying the crap out of me...
(sorry, but I tried to get it to work for... hours... and it's still not working...very very frustrating)

just to puor positive karma, here is the link to the BlueZ mailing-list which seems to have lots of info regarding bluetooth-alsa :-)

As I said in https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=91558#c26 at the moment, there are problems with the SourceForge CVS server, hope they are fixed soon.

Check this link before you emerge: http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/bluetooth-alsa

Kalin.

There are no corresponding ebuilds in the overlay you made accessible. :cry:

Many thanks to all contributing to this! :D

emm....

IT WORKS!

sorry, but I put some effort in to see this happen. I finely can hear mp3 in the BT headphone. Thanks A LOT hothead for starting this thread , and Kalin for upgrading the bug.

I think I now need to report that a logitech freedom mobile and Billionton USB dongle V.11 work!

I had to use the same pin at /etc/bluetooth/pin , as my headset, but I think I know how to solve it.

Now , I just recived the BT-mini-hs from the geeks yesterday http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=BT-MINI-HS

it can talk to the cellular like a regulat BT headset , as well as use the audio gateway profile, so I may use it for VoIP , aka. Skype

But It also does high quality audio!
I tested it on windows, and the resault is quite impressive, for a 28$ headset.

thanks again ppl,
Niv

Hi!
I'm trying to emerge the new ebuilds.
Code:

emerge -at bluetooth-alsa-utils

These are the packages that I would merge, in reverse order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild  N    ] net-wireless/bluetooth-alsa-utils-0.2_alpha20060104
[ebuild  N    ]  net-wireless/bluetooth-alsa-kernel-0.2_alpha20060104

Do you want me to merge these packages? [Yes/No] y
>>> emerge (1 of 2) net-wireless/bluetooth-alsa-kernel-0.2_alpha20060104 to /

!!! Function cvs_fetch, Line 332, Exitcode 1
!!! cvs login command failed
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, NOT this status message.


Any ideas how to resolve this?

The CVS server @ SF is again broken it seems...

If you follow this: http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=116589
You should be able to do it manaully:
Code:

$  cvs -f -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/bluetooth-alsa login
Logging in to :pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:2401/cvsroot/bluetooth-alsa
CVS password:
cvs [login aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)


However at the momemnt I cannot access it either. Try again later :-)
