Shades of King Arthur and the Holy Grail ......


With LM my Holy Grail is trying to find a workaround for the awful Bluetooth sound quality, in particular with headphones .... came across the following:


---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Install Blueman:

sudo apt-get install blueman

Add Disable=headset to /etc/bluetooth/main.conf

Restart the bluetooth daemon:

sudo service bluetooth restart

If you still have poor sound quality go to pavucontrol and under Configuration set the profile of your device to off and then to A2DP and it should work now.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
installing blueman worked a treat, but /etc/ etc., elicited 'permission denied'.... here's the terminal entries :
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
janal@janal-Lenovo-ideapad-110S-11IBR:~$ /etc/bluetooth/main.conf
bash: /etc/bluetooth/main.conf: Permission denied
janal@janal-Lenovo-ideapad-110S-11IBR:~$ sudo /etc/bluetooth/main.conf
sudo: /etc/bluetooth/main.conf: command not found
janal@janal-Lenovo-ideapad-110S-11IBR:~$ Disable=headset /etc/bluetooth/main.conf
bash: /etc/bluetooth/main.conf: Permission denied
janal@janal-Lenovo-ideapad-110S-11IBR:~$

please can somebody put me out of my music-deprived misery?????

You don't try to run /etc/bluetooth/main.conf (which is what you have been doing), you edit it. If you want to use Mint's default text editor, xed, use:

Code:
sudo xed /etc/bluetooth/main.conf
