Default Bluetooth Headset + Skype - 12-13-2008, 09:45 PM

I'm trying to get my bluetooth headset to work with Skype on my Mini. I have successfully paired the Jabra headset w/ Ubuntu and I can hear the test audio through the headset, but the headset mic isn't being picked up in the test. I set "Sound In" device to bluetooth-voice in the Skype options but it's not working. Any ideas on how to test the bluetooth mic outside of Skype? I can't figure out how to make the Ubuntu Recording Level Monitor monitor anything other than the built in mic.

I've been wrestling with the same issue... headset pairs up fine with BT, but then the mic doesn't work.

Eventually, I gave up and bought a cheap wired headset for $7 at TigerDirect, which works fine for my rather minimal soft-phone needs. Not the slickest of solutions, but I didn't have the time to dig in on this one right now.

If you get this working, please post your solution.

Thanks and good luck,
