Embarassed
What does "bring up" mean? Difficult to translate unless you know what this command consists of...
Thank you.

Cordialement.

I repeat myself but I insist on the fact that with headsets, when configuring, at some point in time, I'm faced with a request for a choice of Bluetooth channel. I can choose between... 100 channels! How do I know?
I tested about 20 of them. Without success.

Good question...

Cordialement

I'm running Slacko6.9.9.9 and would very much like to use Bluetooth when I watch movies. I've downloaded the above .pets etc... but when I try opening the bluetooth manager in Network (I do have the bluetooth entry in there)
I get a splashscreen with:

No bluetooth adapters found.
Switch ON the bluetooth adapter or plug it in. And an option to click OK.

Clicking OK does nothing.

I do not get the bluetooth icon in my bottom right menu bar.

Hello LeithR,

Which items were installed from page 1?

Does either "sdptool browse" or "hcitool scan" see your device?

Is the Bluetooth daemon running (htop, then F3 to search: bluetoothd)?

If those commands don't discover your device, post your "lsmod" output here and leave a link.

From the first post in this thread I downloaded and installed all of these:
- bluez (https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2FRkttfZuG0YzNWSVBhaDgwUzA)
- bluez-alsa (already included in the package)
- bluez-tools (https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2FRkttfZuG0Z0NpQlpXZTFBS1U)
- obexd
- a2dp-alsa by jamesbond (already included in the package, Source code: http://www.lightofdawn.org/wiki/wiki.cgi/files/a2dp-alsa-2016-01-02.tar.bz2)

I also downloaded pBluetooth-1.1.pet

The two commands you asked me to try gave the following results:

# sdptool browse
Inquiring ...
Inquiry failed
# hcitool scan
Device is not available: No such device

The opening post can be confusing for some: a2dp-alsa by jamesbond (already included in the package)

Very Happy You're a victim.

If you were to extract the contents of mistfires`pBluetooth pet, you'd find "a2dp-alsa" packaged along with it.

No problem, but I'd probably remove it, then reinstall the pBluetooth pet.

You didn't comment whether bluetoothd was running, which would correspond with those commands failing.

And having looked at your lsmod it's obvious there aren't any bt modules loaded.

I'm also not sure these packages are suitable for Slacko. I'd need to test.

What kind of a bt transmitter is plugged into your computer?

It would appear that I'm on a hiding to nothing, I don't have a BT dongle fitted, didn't clearly understand that I required one. I'll cast about and see if I can get hold of one. Thanks

When shopping, make sure Linux is mentioned on the packaging. IOGear, Panda and TP-Link come to mind.

Hello mistfire

Would it be possible to modify pBluettoth so that the button "Bring device up (if down)" displays the real state of the device?
For example a green circle if the device is active.
Round orange if it's on standby.
Red circle if stopped.

Would it also be possible to display the signal strength as a percentage?
Thanks.

Have a nice day.

I installed the packages via the puppy package manager and they were newer revisions.

i think ill whip up a fresh usb and stick to the instructions to a T.

also, im using an ASUS BT211 usb dongle.
