Install bluetooth and deal with crashes on Debian 7 Wheezy

I bought this bluetooth usb key usb-bt4le
It’s working but the Bluetooth is very unstable.. Fortunately we can use some commands to avoid restarting the computer 😉

Install bluetooth module
apt-get pulseaudio-module-bluetooth

Then plug the usb dongle

You’ll maybe need to restart in order for the Bluetooth icon to show up.

You can now pair with your devices.
