Hello the list
I'm running stretch amd64, upgraded from at least jessie and I think
wheezy -- memory's a bit hazy now. I use Gnome on this machine.
Every time I reboot I find I can't connect my bluetooth headphones to
the computer. In the Gnome bluetooth applet, when I click the slide
button to connect, it immediately slides from ON to OFF without seeming
to do anything.
A while back the archives of this list helped me discover that in order
to fix this I need to run as root:
pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover
Doing this immediately makes it possible to connect the headphones.
Can anyone point me at documentation of how I could arrange things so
this happens automatically and I don't have to type it by hand? I know
there's a way but I am struggling to find, or remember, how.
