    Problem Playing music in bluetooth headset


    Hi
    I have compiled Bluez 4.50 for arm and have installed it. The bluetoothd daemon is running fine. But when I enabled the blueoothd -nd & i get an error saying, Failed to access HAL. After a bit of digging, i tried installing hal on the board in vain. The hcitool scan runs fine and shows all the devices in the vicinity. I compiled agent.c from the test folder and am using it to pair in command line because i donot have python on the board. I see the packets getting txd and rxd in the hcidump when i try to pair with the headset. even the light in the headset changes after pairing. but i donot hear any sound when i play a *.wav file.

    my /etc/asound.conf -->

    pcm.rawbluetooth {
    type bluetooth
    device 00:1E:7C:00:4F:4D
    }
    pcm.bluetooth {
    type plug
    slave {
    pcm {
    type bluetooth
    device 00:1E:7C:00:4F:4D
    }
    }
    }

    My .asoundrc --->
    pcm.rawbluetooth {
    type bluetooth
    device 00:1E:7C:00:4F:4D
    }
    pcm.bluetooth {
    type plug
    slave {
    pcm {
    type bluetooth
    device 00:1E:7C:00:4F:4D
    }
    }
    }

    aplay -D bluetooth some.wav
    ALSA lib ../../../alsa-lib-1.0.15/src/pcm/pcm.c:2106snd_pcm_open_conf) Cannot open shared library /usr/local/alsa/lib/alsa-lib/libasoundo
    aplay: main:546: audio open error: No such file or directory

    Please has anyone got any such error or any suggestions ... anything would do ...
    thanks

    can't get my Sony headset to connect either

    Hi Paladin007,

    I am not able to hear sounds from my Sony headset (DR-BT50) even though Blueman shows that it is paired and sending/receiving.

    I created and added similar, seemingly appropriate items in my .soundrc file. Also downloaded and installed the latest Blueman version, 1.21 from blueman-project dot org - The Blueman Project, which had me hopeful, because the settings changed and more line items appeared in the Pulse Audio Manager.

    I hope that the latest Ubuntu 10.04 (impending April 2010 release) solves this problem. The new OS version is no longer using HAL, and perhaps that was part of it?

    However, I can sync and send/receive files with my Nokia phone using Bluetooth, using Blueman directly.
