I tried everything on this list up to comment #59 then it started working!

Bluetooth Headset: BT-BSH10
Laptop: ASUS X201E 11.6" Celeron 4GB/320GB Ubuntu Laptop
OS: Ubuntu 14.04 with all updates as of today.

On comment #29 I had to add the etc/bluetooth/audio.conf file, it did not exist.

I did this by going to:

Then use CRTL+A to highlight the entire file. Then CRTL+C to copy it.

Open the Terminal and type the command:

sudo gedit

Then paste the file in gedit with CRTL+V.

I made the same changes as comment # 29 but also uncommented:




Then use File->Save As from the menu to place it in etc/bluetooth directory.
It was necessary to use the arrow next to Usr to move up to the Home directory and then click it again when it changes to a hard drive icon. The etc directory will be visable now, click on it and then bluetooth, make the title audio.conf and click save.

After a reboot it started woking at comment #59 with the Terminal command:

pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover

It responds with:

Bluetooth headset with buit-in microphone both work now.
I can see the Bluetooth headset in the PulseAudio Volume Control.
The Sound app now lists the Headset under the Input and Output tabs.
