[pulseaudio] backend-ofono.c: Failed to register as a handsfree audio agent with ofono: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.ofono was not provided by any .service files

Also note Debian has more recent version:

note: that install has no 'ofono' package installed; and sound works as expected.

Status changed to 'Confirmed' because the bug affects multiple users.

Changed in pulseaudio (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

Confirmed, but it looks like it doesn't happen very often (only on startup?). And it also looks like the missing "ofono" packages are in universe, so not something was can install by default with pulseaudio.

The ofono support is core to pulseaudio and not something we have accidentally configured in just for Ubuntu. It's also probably not something we should explicitly configure out.

I think the error message is a valid warning, but something most people should ignore. Only people who actually intend for ofono support should pay attention to it.

Changed in pulseaudio (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Low
status: Confirmed → Won't Fix

I installed the "ofono" package because it wasn't installed by default on Linux Mint 19.1 XFCE. And now I don't see an error message anymore. Thanks, Daniel van Vugt.
