Review of Linux Compatibility

The Logitech H800 is a wireless headset, which uses a Bluetooth connection to the PC.

The headset is fully supported under Linux, and has successfully been used e.g. under OpenSuSE 13.1 with Linux kernel 3.17, under Ubuntu 12.04 and under Fedora with Linux kernel 3.6.10-2.fc17.

Aplay shows the following device if the headset is connected:

Karte 2: Headset [Logitech Wireless Headset], Gerät 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]
  Sub-Geräte: 1/1
  Sub-Gerät #0: subdevice #0

The Logitech H800 headset is automatically recognized:

    This headset was working perfectly for me, but a recent update (Linux Mint) seems to have broken support. Here is my syslog now:

      Nevermind. Moving the usb dongle to another port fixed the issue. A google search pointed to possible differences in power output from different USB ports on the same PC, so I tried swapping the dongles for the headset and USB mouse and it seems to be working fine again now. User-friendly!
