Bluetooth speaker is not working.

Post by Gow_Sk » 2020/01/15 10:31:48

Hi,
I'm using CentOS Linux release 7.7.1908 (Core).
I tried to connect a Bluetooth speaker. In the sound settings, if I switch the output to 'Speaker - HPS6500' I don't hear any sound.
The built in speaker is fine. I've not tried any other speaker. But the speaker is working with my Windows 10 and iphone 8plus.

Need help figuring this out. (Screenshot attached)

Hello
make sure you have pulseaudio-module-bluetooth installed and check bluetooth is running

Code: Select all

systemctl status bluetooth
also

Code: Select all

rfkill list
if it's soft blocked

Code: Select all

rfkill unblock bluetooth
