Re: A2DP sink profile is unavailable

Using bluez-git also solved this problem for me with my Bose QC35ii's. Thanks big_smile

Re: A2DP sink profile is unavailable

bluez 5.60 has been released and should contain the fix, so if anyone wants to, they can go back to using bluez instead of bluez-git

neutral this upgrade indeed fixed the A2DP problem, but i'm finding that my MX Vertical needs a repairing after each reboot (and this issue persists if i switch to the bluez-git package), guess i'm staying at bluez 5.58

Did you nuke /var/lib/bluetooth ?

Yep, and i've seen early posts that have the very same issue.

Maybe you should file a bug report on 5.60?

It seems that i've found the workaround to my problem, as suggested in the archwiki page Problems with all BLE devices on kernel 5.9+, and it works in my case!

I can confirm this. Although I had already downgraded to 5.58 and deleted `/var/lib/bluetooth/`, upgrading to 5.60 and restarting bluetooth service still hasn't broken anything. I'm able to enjoy A2DP and even aptX now! wohoo!

Thanks for figuring out the workaround though knovoselic big_smile

Re: A2DP sink profile is unavailable

Updated to the new bluez-5.60-1 and removed the pulseaudio-modules-bt-git and replaced with pulseaudio-bluetooth (to get back to a more standard setup), removed the contents of /var/lib/bluetooth/ and then ran a systemctl restart bluetooth -- re-paired my WH-1000XM4 and now they finally work with a2dp.

Re: A2DP sink profile is unavailable

Confirm the steps above worked for me after running bluez-git while this was being resolved.

I know the community revels in reading the manual etc but I hadn't done this kind of conflicting upgrade yet, so learned a couple of new pacman steps which I'll add here:

Attempting to remove bluez-git:

> $ sudo pacman -Rs bluez-git
checking dependencies...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: removing bluez-git breaks dependency 'bluez-libs' required by networkmanager
:: removing bluez-git breaks dependency 'bluez' required by pulseaudio-bluetooth
:: removing bluez-git breaks dependency 'bluez-libs' required by pulseaudio-bluetooth

Ah, it provides those:

> $ pacman -Qi bluez
Name            : bluez-git
Version         : 1:5.59.r10.g864d03727-1
Provides        : libbluetooth.so=3-64  bluez=5.59-1  bluez-utils=5.59-1  bluez-libs=5.59-1  bluez-cups=5.59-1  bluez-hid2hci=5.59-1  bluez-plugins=5.59-1
Required By     : networkmanager  pulseaudio-bluetooth
Conflicts With  : bluez  bluez-utils  bluez-libs  bluez-cups  bluez-hid2hci  bluez-plugins  bluez-hcidump  obexd-client  obexd-server
...

Read the man page on this one:

> $ pacman -Rdd bluez-git

And finally reinstate the dependencies:

> $ pacman -Rdd bluez-git
> $ pacman -S bluez bluez-libs

Probably time to mark the thread as solved?
