Fix- Bluetooth speaker A2DP issue in Fedora and archlinux

Published by shyam jos on

Due to a bug in pulseaudio module A2DP option is not working properly in recent versions of fedora and archlinux.

Follow this tutorial if you have trouble connecting your bluetooth speaker/Headset in A2DP mode on Fedora or arch Linux.

Edit the file

/etc/pulse/default.pa

Now comment out the following line

#load-module module-bluetooth-discover

Then save it

Now Edit the file

/usr/bin/start-pulseaudio-x11

and after the lines:

if [ x”$SESSION_MANAGER” != x ] ; then
/usr/bin/pactl load-module module-x11-xsmp “display=$DISPLAY session_manager=$SESSION_MANAGER” > /dev/null
fi

add below line

/usr/bin/pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover

Save the file and restart your system

Now you can easily set A2DP in sound settings.

PS: set selinux to permissive
