I have a plantronics voyager B8200 wireless headset that I’ve been using with OpenSuSE and recently decided to reinstall Tumbleweed from scratch (long story, irrelevant). It works for the most part, however the headset automatically does this thing where it goes into momentary ‘pause’ when there is no sound being generated by the computer. This normally is not an issue but since I’ve re-installed Tumbleweed, each time the audio kicks in after any period of silence this triggers this momentary ‘pause’, the volume increases by 5%. A single increment each time.
This didn’t happen on my earlier Tumbleweed install, and only started happening when I re-installed at the end of may.
I tried googling but can’t really seem to find much about this. Any ideas?
Wait, no. I spoke too soon. I disabled auto-mute and while swapping workspaces in cinnamon it didn’t auto-increment. Then a few moments later it happened again.
However, what is odd, is that if I switch workspaces with ctrl+alt left/right, the sound doesn’t increment. If I click on a different workspace in the workspace switcher using the mouse, it happens. I really don’t know what to make of all this.
I’m honestly at a loss of words. I’ve asked for the ticket to be closed as I somehow fixed the issue. I essentially switched between the analog and digital BT600 profile and pressed a few buttons at random on the headset. The issue stopped.
