Audio Output is not automatically switching to Bluetooth Headsets

Hi, I am new to manjaro and linux also. So I have bluetooth headsets, Oneplus Bullet Wireless Z. My problem is that when I connect my headphones to pc, my audio output does not automatically switches to headphones, I have to open volume bar and manually change to headphones, I searched many times but didn,t find any solution. Any help will be much appreciated.

:+1: Welcome to Manjaro! :+1:

  1. Please read this:
    How to provide good information
    and post some more information so we can see what’s really going on. Now we know the symptom of the disease, but we need some more probing to know where the origin lies… :grin:

  2. An inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width would be the minimum required information for us to be able to help you. (Personally Identifiable Information like serial numbers and MAC addresses will be filtered out by the above command)
    Also, please copy-paste that output in-between 3 backticks ``` at the beginning and end of the code/text.

  3. Have you checked whether the line

    load-module module-switch-on-connect
    

    is present in /etc/pulse/default.pa

:+1:

P.S. If you enter a bit more details in your profile, we can also see which Desktop Environment you’re using, which CPU/GPU or Kernel, … you have without typing it every time

There is no line of load-module module-switch-on-connect in /etc/pulse/default.pa

There is no line of load-module module-switch-on-connect in /etc/pulse/default.pa

Please add that first

Look if there is a BIOS update and apply that too.

:crossed_fingers:

I added load-module module-switch-on-connect in /etc/pulse/default.pa restarted my pc and It worked, Thank you very very much.
