I tested different kernel versions today:

Kernel 4.1: not working
Kernel 4.0: not working
Kernel 3.19: Bluetooth is running

Do we need a newer bluez version for a Kernel higher 4.0? Or is a kernel driver not working?

How to find out?

On switching to 15.10 my Logitech H800 BT headset no longer exports a microphone in the sound settings dialogue, the headset works fine otherwise for HSP/HFP play back and A2DP

After reading many recipes, which didn't help, I made this: cp /etc/pulse/default.pa ~/.pulse/default.pa , and suddenly everything was ok. The msg 'Home directory not accessible' should be (in sense) 'we can't find a folder and a file' :-)
Healthy New Year!

I tried your solution bsb, it was not the answer for me, the H800 headset microphone remains the only thing not working in my case.
