Problem is very simple, every time I power on my Bluedio Bluetooth headphones I hear device connected, however, sound is not being output anywhere, I have to go to Bluetooth settings and manually reconnect the devices after which I hear additional beep sound and headphones work properly as A2DP profile. It seems that if I open bluetooth settings panel before powering on the headphones and manually choose to pair, then headphones will also work properly.

Is there are a way to have sound output properly by default to the headphones as soon as they are connected?

This behavior is persistent across all of the Fedora 21 to 24.

The following has helped me with a similar but not identical problem. You could try! From:

Automatically switch to Bluetooth or USB headset

Add the following:


# automatically switch to newly-connected devices
load-module module-switch-on-connect

I had to manually set the connection to A2DP but only once.
