LXer: Control Skype Calls with Bluetooth Headset Button in Linux

Published at LXer:

Skype on linux works great but the problem that I faced was that it does not handle the buttons on the bluetooth headsets. My wife uses skype to call into her work related conference calls and was pretty frustrated that she had to keep sitting in front of my laptop (her laptop didnít allow to install skype) just to switch mute on and off. So, I whipped up this little trick to do so.
