no bluetooth audio in jessie

A few days ago, I upgraded my laptop from wheezy to jessie.  After that
I noticed that audio to my bluetooth speaker didn't work anymore.  I had
been using alsa audio and had a bluetooth type entry in my .asoundrc for
my speaker.

After a bit of digging it turned out that I had lost bluetooth audio,
because bluez-alsa package does not exist in jessie.  If I understood
correctly, the reason is that bluez version 5 does not support alsa

So I decided to try if my bluetooth speaker would work in jessies with
pulseaudio.  Unfortunately that was not the case.  I got an error

Apr 12 12:22:02 lohi pulseaudio[6318]: org.bluez.Manager.GetProperties()
failed: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: Method "GetProperties"
with signature "" on interface "org.bluez.Manager" doesn't exist

After a bit more digging, i found this thread that went way above my


Long story short:  it would be nice if bluetooth audio would "just work"
in jessie like it did in lenny and wheezy for years.
