@gdonval Thanks for the heads up. I'll get on this as soon as I can.

Installation does not work anymore on Gnome-based systems because of constraints:

:: removing libpulse breaks dependency '' required by fluidsynth
:: removing libpulse breaks dependency '' required by freerdp
:: removing libpulse breaks dependency '' required by pipewire-pulse

(and if you try to remove those, it's going all the way up to gstreamer and gnome-control-center, through dependencies).

Installation works if you modify:

provides=(pulseaudio{,-{zeroconf,lirc,jack,bluetooth,equalizer}} "libpulse" libpulse{,-simple,-mainloop-glib}.so) #"pulseaudio-xen" "pulseaudio-gconf"

(note the 3 added files before the comment.

You might want to revisit your patchset: flat volume is disabled by default now for instance. It could be that other things are as well.

(with apologies for going offtopic) - stuartiannaylor: check the 'restore_bluetooth_profile=true' parameter for module-card-restore, as outlined at It used to cause a segfault (still does in pulseaudio 13) but I fixed it.

stuartiannaylor, having survived the initial collapse of bluetooth support in pulseaudio a few years back, I feel your pain, however this is not a very useful place to discuss this. These comments are for issues with this packaging, not the software itself.

These days it is actually possible to contact the pulseaudio community; ie via IRC or using their mailing list.

Have you tried pavucontrol? It can't do everything that pacmd or pactl can do, but it can do a lot. If all three profiles are supported, you should be able to select them for your headset in pavucontrol's "Configuration" tab. Your selection should be remembered.

Another way would be to specify a manual configuration in /etc/pulse/, but that's a whole rabbit hole unto itself.

With the constant changes to AD2P and HSP/HFP I am struggling. In PA12 they changed the prority as HSP/HFP would always autoconnect Now it seems impossible to change profile as AD2P always autoconnects

1 card(s) available.

                headset-input: Headset (priority 0, latency offset 0 usec, available: no)

Anyone got any info on how to use HSP/HFP profiles with PA12? Gone through multiple configs also with ofono but firstly it will always default to AD2P and state the HSP/HFP profile is not available.

Same dongle, same headset on android or windows works and also use HSP/HFP because it has a mic rather than just headphones.

Anyone any ideas or some urls you can point me to as so many devices still use HSP/HFP 1.6+

jack2 now replaces() jack2-dbus.

Would be handy if jack2-dbus were also listed in both its conflicts() and provides(); but the appropriateness of doing so may depend on your interpretation of "deprecated".

@Haystack, @AlexWayfer

Hey, my bad. I removed an unnecessary source file but forgot to updpkgsums before uploading. I will fix this later tonight, as soon as I get home. In the meantime, you can remove the hash sum on line 34:

I'm having the same problem as @AlexWayfer
