[Bug 1438510] Re: [REGRESSION] bluetooth headset no longer supports a2dp


I have the exact same bug on up to date 16.04 beta (cannot connect to
a2dp sink but hsp working), but i didn't have the bug before with

If it can help, here is the message showing in syslog when autoconnecting to the bluetooth speaker:
Apr  2 10:44:39 vaio pulseaudio[1890]: [pulseaudio] bluez5-util.c: Transport Acquire() failed for transport /org/bluez/hci0/dev_A0_E9_DB_00_E2_4D/fd1 (Operation Not Authorized)

I can confirm that is it, at least for me, related to
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92102 , and that manually
connecting to the speaker with "connect  A0:E9:DB:00:E2:4D" with
bluetoothctl make the a2dp sink available, while just connecting the
speaker with the bluetooth applet didn't. No file modification required.

Note that sometimes it fails to connect even with bluetoothctl, but
trying once again the connect command connects successfully.

Bug description:
  Just installed 15.04 fresh from the latest ISO (beta2).

  I'm bummed to see my bluetooth headset (Bose Soundlink overear) seems
  to have regressed in functionality.

  In 14.10, I was able to set the output profile either to a2dp or
  hsp/hfp (telephony duplex).

  In 15.04, it only works in telephony duplex mode.  I can't get high
  fidelity sound playback to work at all.

  This thread seems to be related, though the workaround within did not solve the problem for me:
