This has the ring of common sense to it -- it would explain why it
suddenly stopped working. I didn't do an apt autoremove last Sunday, but
may have done one the Sunday before -- which would have been reckless
even for me just before going on a business trip during which I wanted
to be able to access my machine remotely [albeit not the bluetooth
parts], but I suspect I did it anyway... I certainly did one recently,
just can't remember exactly when, and hence can't be sure whether I have
used bluetooth headphones successfully since...
If anyone can remember which package that is, I can check if it is
installed... The only thing is I am not sure how it would have got onto
the system if it isn't depended on and I didn't install it manually. And
if it IS depended on, or I did install it manually, apt autoremove
should not have removed it...
To someone's point, Google'S coming up fairly blank on this one...
