Good News, bluetooth works!
« on: October 22, 2018, 05:46:45 pm »
A while back I was trying to get a bluetooth dongle to work in P 8, wouldn't go. Today I thought about checking it in P 9 since I'm getting close with my speaker project and sure enough, it works. Thank you P 9, er PCNetSpec!  ;D
What was I thinking?

That's another thing that I want working on my M6. Could you maybe say more about it?

Hi Brotherred, not much more I can say, I plugged in the dongle, fired up Bluetooth Manager and it all worked. In P 8 Bluetooth Manager would recognize the bluetooth device I was trying to pair and would pair but would not output any sound to it.

Got a few 'blue devices' on my Peppermint 7 'Road Warrior'.





In my experience, BT is always a PITA to setup, regardless of the OS, but once you get them config'ed they seem to hang in there.

For the most part, it's voodoo...

ever since i think it was ubuntu 10 or so Bluetooth has been hit or miss in most distros , ive always had to install pulse audio equalizer and controls and manually change the output device to Bluetooth every time i wanted to use it so yes it was a serious PITA going into pulse and back to audio mixer setting output devices .. the good news is , i found Pepp 9 and it is working really well now
