After a recent update, i am no longer able to connect to a pair of bluetooth headphones. This is both from the GUI applet and CLI using
bluetoothctl. I have removed the device and tried to repair to no avail. after some digging i noticed i also no longer have
pavucontrol installed anymore, and i need to reinstall
I try re-installing
pulseaudio-module-bluetooth and i get this:
Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: pulseaudio-module-bluetooth : Depends: libpulse0 (= 1:11.1-1ubuntu7.4) but 1:11.1-1ubuntu7.5 is to be installed Depends: pulseaudio (= 1:11.1-1ubuntu7.4) E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
So, i should just try to downgrade
Well, when i try to do
sudo apt install libpulse0=1:11.1-1ubuntu7.4 i get this:
The following packages will be REMOVED: blueman elementary-desktop gala gnome-settings-daemon libcanberra-pulse libpulse-mainloop glib0 libpulsedsp pantheon-shell pantheon-xsession-settings pulseaudio pulseaudio-utils switchboard-plug-notifications switchboard-plug-pantheon-shell switchboard-plug-sound wingpanel-indicator-sound The following packages will be DOWNGRADED: libpulse0 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 downgraded, 15 to remove and 3 not upgraded. Need to get 265 kB of archives. After this operation, 16.0 MB disk space will be freed. Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
I should NOT do this right?
But how can i get my bluetooth headphones connected again?
How did this happen?
Does this have anything to do with pipewire?
