@morgenstern My mistake! Not sure how I missed the message.

morgenstern commented on 2022-07-26 20:09 (UTC)

@neorsein do not flag VCS packages as out-of-date. Please re-run makepkg if you need the latest version.

@BrainDamage this is a build issue, not a dependency issue. See the upstream report here. Should be fixed soon.

I will add spandsp to the optdepends array.

EDIT: Fixed upstream.

BrainDamage commented on 2022-02-24 17:10 (UTC)

package fails to build a clean chroot with:

In file included from sco.c:29: codec-msbc.h:25:10: fatal error: spandsp.h: No such file or directory 25 | #include <spandsp.h> | ^~~~~~~~~~~

I guess spandsp is missing from the deps

I have disowned this packet since I don't require bluez alsa anymore on Arch.

BumptiousNoob commented on 2021-07-01 11:44 (UTC)

It's good idea add

backup=('etc/default/bluealsa')

I suppose, otherwise it lose all setting on every update

keithspg commented on 2021-02-20 23:11 (UTC)

This package has no sysusers.d file. It will run, but always leaves a message in the journal about a missing user. Personally, I have tried this one:

u bluealsa 974 "Bluez-Alsa User"
m bluealsa audio

@Busindre for systemd and dbus issues, see the upstream wiki.

Busindre commented on 2020-08-20 22:32 (UTC)

It doesn't work, the service can't be started. This is the error message.

systemctl start bluealsa Failed to start bluealsa.service: Unit dbus-org.bluez.service not found.

I can't start the service, systemctl just hangs. Anyone else with this problem?

I had it working fine but then after a reinstall I can't get it to work anymore for some reason

Guys, you are better off, just going to the github and follow the instructions there. Otherwise you will have permissions problems. Tested in archlinux 5.6.3-arch1-1.

nheird commented on 2020-01-05 19:50 (UTC)

@darek-arch: I can't reproduce. This file is installed by the Makefile upstream, with respect to ./configure ... --sysconfdir=/etc ....

Can you give more details ? Basically, the build should looks like https://0x0.st/zn5W.log following by https://0x0.st/zn5J.log for packaging.

darek-arch commented on 2020-01-05 19:22 (UTC)

I had to manually move the config file, 20-bluealsa.conf, from /usr/etc/alsa/conf.d to /etc/alsa/conf.d.

This package is not out-of-date. The version is provided by the pkver() function. Simply rebuild to update.

See here and here for more information.

Took me long to make it work, too

I have this in my .asoundrc:

defaults.bluealsa.service "org.bluealsa"

defaults.bluealsa.device "20:74:CF:24:1C:A2"

defaults.bluealsa.profile "a2dp"

pezcurrel commented on 2019-09-15 10:29 (UTC)

Thanks for maintaing this package :) I think that for the greatest compatibility the "bluealsa.service" file should state...

ExecStart=bluealsa -p a2dp-source -p a2dp-sink -p hfp-hf -p hfp-ag -p hsp-hs -p hsp-ag

It took me long to find out that in order for bluez-alsa to work for streaming from my phone to the pc I had to run "bluealsa" with "-p a2dp-sink" ;)

please add armv6h (pi1/Zero) to the architecture list. it builds and works on that platform as well.

I am able to build this, but it does not run. I posted to the bluealsa package as well, but am wondering if this is an Arch systemd permission issue? The current version builds as: bluez-alsa-git 1.4.0.r9.g1557602-1

Also, the tmpfiles references /var/run and should be changed to /run in the package...

I have installed the bluetooth-raspberrypi AUR as well as installed the standard bluez packages:

bluetooth-raspberrypi 6-2 bluez 5.50-6 bluez-alsa-git 1.4.0.r9.g1557602-1 bluez-libs 5.50-6 bluez-utils 5.50-6

Every launch of the service gives this error in the journal:

Hi. The installation fails with this error message:

install: cannot stat '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-azmeuk/aur-bluez-alsa-git/src/bluez-alsa-git/LICENSE.txt': No such file or directory

capoeira commented on 2019-03-10 16:16 (UTC)

Hi folks. Even with the service loading at boot my audio devices wont connect. They connect fine with pulseaudio installed. any hints? it's the standard "Failed to connect: org.bluez.Error.Failed" error

actionless commented on 2019-01-02 00:22 (UTC)

hi! package version shouldn't start from v, just number

nheird commented on 2018-10-29 13:51 (UTC)

Hi @kempniu, thanks for the report. I added sysconfdir as you mentioned.

kempniu commented on 2018-10-29 13:04 (UTC)

Hi! Thank you for maintaining this package. Please note that upstream commit dae0699, which was committed roughly a week ago, necessitates adding "--sysconfdir /etc" to the list of ./configure options used, otherwise the 20-bluealsa.conf file lands in /usr/etc/alsa/conf.d, which breaks things. Could you please take a look? Thanks!

chowbok commented on 2018-08-05 03:03 (UTC)

Hi... can you add "aarch64" to the supported architectures? It builds fine.

yodor commented on 2018-03-16 09:07 (UTC)

Thank you for maintaining this package
