So I got a bluetooth headset for Christmas ...
Yesterday I paired it with my (android) phone without problems, today I tried again, connected it but it wouldn't play any sound, I tried unpairing and pairing again didn't help
Then I thought: I'll try connecting it to my laptop
Connected it and nothing, no sound, it says it's connected but no other sound comes out of it
that was under Solus
I booted into Windows
I connected it
It works
What is this sorcery?

    @Forside Why don't you just install vista and burn your house down while you're at it.

    I experienced similar with my Bose headphone pairing with my android, just trial and error until it works πŸ˜‚

    @octogato coffee is always the answer

    I just do:
    'sudo systemctl reload bluetooth'

    If that didn't work, I restart both the headphones and my laptop :)

    @Nanos well then do on speakers or the only last other option is listen to music in your head!!

    @g-m-f Tis witchcraft indeed
    @Forside No???
    @octogato I think that Bluetooth smells fear, that's why calming down with coffee helps with the connection πŸ€”πŸ˜‚
    @hacker I'll keep that in mind for later, when I try to connect the headphones to Linux again

    @danzig666 yesss, I like how people comment about similar problems πŸ₯‚
    @erbiswa such luck
    @Nanos I find it particularly funny that on some days the reach is higher than on others
    Hahah that house sinking part
    But you know that you're a bit crazy, right? Speakers in every room and stuff
