The below is for Raspbian Jessie and does not work for Stretch
Any help on how to go about getting bluetooth to work with Stretch would be appreciated...
I am new to Pi and been trying to get bluetooth speakers up and running with no joy.
I followed this article step by step - https://www.raspberrypi.org/magpi/bluet ... erry-pi-3/:
In short that is:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo apt-get install pi-bluetooth blueman sudo apt-get install pulseaudio pavucontrol pulseaudio-module-bluetooth
Result is no audio at all via bluetooth, HDMI or jack. I have tried with three devices and result as follows:
Bose Soundlink Mini:
I can connect and pair via "bluetooth manager" but device does not show up in pulseAudio GUI.
Zoro II Wireless Headphones
Connect and pairs ok with "bluetooth manager", shows up in pulseAudio GUI. Can select as output device in Chromium. But no sound plays through headset. I tried muting built in and selecting headset as fall back but no joy.
In this case I can see audio registering on the built in output via the PulseAudio GUI.
Mpow Swift Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Earphones
Cannot be detected by "bluetooth manager" at all.
I then tried to switch to builtin jack socket using:
Then selecting advanced > audio > "3.5mm jack".
Still no output via two different sets of working headphones.
I have tried using sound sources on Chromium, a terminal
speak test or 4 and an MP4 via VLC.
Finally as Raspbian was already installed on the sd for some reason when it arrived I tried a fresh install and repeated all steps to the same result. I also tried using a spare Pi in case of hardware issues with no joy.
Any help would be great.
