You have been subscribed to a public bug:

I upgraded to 13.04 recently and my A2DP profile, which had been working
great under 12.10 is suddenly gone.  Neither my blueman applet nor the
built-in bluetooth manager applet can connect my external bluetooth
speaker to the A2DP profile.  They can connect to the bluetooth device
itself just fine.

Steps I'm using:

* using blueman, I can connect to the external bluetooth speaker and view the device in the devices listing
* I can connect the device to the Audio sink and I get a message saying it is now connected and will "show in the PulseAudio mixer"
* After connecting the external speaker to the audio sink, I can also see the device in the "Play sound through" listing in the Sound system control panel, but the icon has a circle with a line through it.
* but if I right-click the device and choose "Audio Profile" from the context menu and try to select "High Fidelity Playback (A2DP)" as the new profile, I get an error message stating "failed to change profile to a2dp"

I've already added "Enable=Socket" in /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf, without
that I can't pair my headset. Now I can pair it, but I can't activate
the A2DP profile.

When I try to activate it, I see this message in my syslog :
pulseaudio[2603]: [pulseaudio] module-bluetooth-device.c: Profile has no transport

I tried the kernel 3.9.0 because of a sound problem with my soundcard,
this kernel fixed my soundcard problem, but A2DP still doesn't work
