Debian – user Bluetooth Speackerbox with Micro

Today I tried to connect a “August MS425” speaker box with my Linux Notebook running on Debian Jessie. To get the bluetooth connection running I installed the following additional packages:

sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-module-bluetooth, ofono, pavucontrol

After I established the bluetooth connection the speaker box was not working or displayed in the list of audio devices. To solve this issue I found this discussion.

The missing part was the the auto-connect a2dp option for the new device. So I had to edit the file “/etc/pulse/default.pa” and added the following line :

load-module module-switch-on-connect

After a reboot it works fine. You can use pavucontrol to setup audio settings.
