Audio and input support in KBluetooth :)
Finally, the most wanted feature has landed in KBluetooth, support for Audio!
The support is divided in 4 blocks:
- Pair the device
The support for pair the devices should be working, not only for HEADSETS but for everything.
- Connect to the service
KBluetooth will detect if the paired device has audio service, and connect to it.
- Support for PulseAudio
PulseAudio rocks, and since it rocks it will detect and configure the new device automagically :)
- Support for Alsa
Alsa is not automagical like PulseAudio, so we've to write a few things in a file to get it working.
Everything is done by KBluetooth but Alsa support, so I'll explain how to get it working manually.
1-Pair it using kbluetooth-wizard (be sure that you're using kbluetooth-wizard an not kbluetooth-inputwizard)
2-Launch kbluetooth-devicemanager, click in your headset and write somewhere the Address (XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX)
3-Open with your favorite editor the file ~/.asoundrc (located in your home) and add:
4-If you want use it with Phonon, try the following configuration (is not working totally but something is something :))
description "BlueTooth Headset"
With this, a Bluetooth device should appear in KDE-Multimedia configuration, but as I said is not full working (If I recall correctly the output was working perfectly but not the input).
As always, the corresponding video:
