tech advice sought, gnome Linux, long, mundane 

One of the great frictions of my work day is switching to HSP (headset profile) instead of A2DP every time I switch on my Bluetooth headset. If I don't do it I end up unable to speak in a meeting because there's no mic.

I have to go into Gnome Settings and select HSP for the profile before starting meeting-app-of-the-day (I use a few).

Is there a good way to either get it to default to last-used-profile or at least to change the default?

@derwinmcgeary can I boost?

@welshpixie absolutely! Thank you

@derwinmcgeary I had to do this every morning, too, and it was annoying. I just kept PAVU open all the time to switch it.

My new job sent me a Mac and now I don't have that problem, but I do have to deal with Apple music popping up and taking over my screen every time I disconnect my headset and I find that even more annoying. And there is apparently no way to stop it.

So no actual advice, just sympathy and an "it could be worse".

@derwinmcgeary

Probably with dconf-editor

@derwinmcgeary I have a Jabra with as USB Bluetooth dongle now which works better. It should also work better with new drivers but at least in the Ubuntu 20.04 I'm using these are not included. Newest fedora or Ubuntu could work.
