How to get Bluetooth headset working both as headset and high fidelity playback A2DP Sink with nice sound. @system76 #Pop!_OS #linux #pop_os #ubuntu #Linux #gnome

I was unable to switch my bluetooth headset between different audio profiles.
Did read alot of blogs and edit blutooth and pulsaudio files to get this to work.
Did not get sound in the headset when I went into settings and test my sound. It says that I test my headphone but the sound went out from the computer RIGHT LEFT or mono.

Non of that worked for me.

Simple solution

  1. Install these to packages2020-05-13_22-12
  2. apt-get install pavucontrol
  3. apt-get install pasystray

Yes you will have to volumes icon in the systray, but I can live with that.

But now I can switch between these modes without any trouble.

Works also in Teams!
