I have compiled(make ,make install ,etc) bluez 5.40 on Raspbian Jessie 8 successfuly but if i try :

sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-module-bluetooth

give mean output :

extra packages need to be installed : bluez

If it is already compiled why this ? If i accept install it goes ahead and install APT version alongside compiled version

After some research :

-Getting source code


then :

sudo apt-get install checkinstall

and still inside the source code folder

sudo checkinstall

The last command is a tool to install a version of OS package manager .
