I think that using btsco (bluetooth-alsa) is a wrong choice. There are
little chance that btsco module will be accepted by the kernel folks
(its task belongs clearly to userspace) and it's configuration is
tricky. Also, a persistent connection to the headset is a bad idea, as
commented by Jose Carlos. I prefer to speak directly with the SCO
device using bluetooth sockets; I've coded it for kphone and it's
What can be truly interesting is using gnome-bluetooth to discover /
pair the headset.
The quick&hot audio device changing is very useful to switch between
headsets (USB, BT, or whatever) and loudspeakers, but should be
requested explicitly by the user (just imagine an automatic switch
while you are insulting your boss ;-)
Using the BT button to select the initial device is just an idea. A
better idea may be to configure two audio devices: one for the
headsets (BT, USB or whatever) and one for the loudspeaker, and add a
button to the UI to quick switch between them.
