Thanks for the pointers Paul.

Unfortunately frameworkd and the dbus stuff does not appear to be relevant for qtmoko.

However those pointers did explain what the start gsm bt audio fix does which is hidden in the tools 
menu on qtmomo.

I guess I can sniff around what you guys did for the other dists, and try to do the equivalent here, 
seems Radek got most of it working, but going into a shell and typing stuff to connect and 
disconnect would probably make the California Highway Patrol come down on you like a ton of bricks, 
especially since texting while driving is illegal (although it doesn't say typing shell commands is 
illegal ;)

Anyway the main point is I need to integrate all this into the system so it all happens 
automatically, like on most other phones, otherwise it defeats the object of having a "handsfree 

Has this been automated on the other dists, or do people still need to setup everything manually?
Does qtmoko use the same version of bluez as the other dists? Do those dists handle the buttons for 
answering and hanging up calls? If so I can probably port some of that over unless it all uses 
frameworkd and dbus commands. If nothing else I can use it as a pointer to how to do it.

Ok that makes sense, I do have another A2DP headset, I'll see if that works differently.
