PostPosted: Sat 04 Mar 2017, 08:23    Post subject:  pBluetooth bluetooth manager
Subject description: A fork of PuppyBT by fr33land
 

This a fork of the abandoned PuppyBT by fr33land. It manages almost the whole bluetooth adapters and its connectivity. It is improved and more user friendly than PuppyBT

This app requires the following packages:
- 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)

New features:
* Adaptive daemon. If there is no bluetooth adapter detected. all bluetooth daemons will not run. If they are running, they will kill automatically. This will save more ram
* With paired device management
* With serial communication

Currently tested:
* Streaming sounds on bluetooth speaker (Set the sound output of a player to alsa)
* Basic pairing and device management
* Establishing serial port communication on bluetooth
* Receiving files over bluetooth

Need to be tested:
* Bluetooth tethering
* Receive sound input from the mic of the bluetooth headset
* Sound input from bluetooth headset
* a2dp audio stearming

Need to be added or change in the future:
* Sending files over bluetooth (without gnome-bluetooth)
* Bluetooth FTP
* Shift user interface from dialog to Xdialog

If you want to contribute on this project just upload your changes here (in PET package format)

I used fr33lands version with some success but needed quite a lot of help along the way (see from page two of thread). I'm using the most up to date version of lucid 287s2. I'd like to try your pet but have one question. Are the above packages available as pets?

Regards,

Ken.

PuppyBT thread was deleted because fr33land withdrew the project. If you are currently using PuppyBT then the pBluetooth should work. It is already stated on the first post of this thread which component is not yet tested. I already tested its functionality.

UPDATE:
I repacked bluez-tools into pet package complete with its dependencies

I made a new save file to test this as I remember it took quite a lot for me to get fr33lands to work and I don't want to remove it until I have yours working. However I cannot find a pet for bluez 4.99.
Can you please post a link to it. Do I still need this?
Code:
- a2dp-alsa by jamesbond (Source code: http://www.lightofdawn.org/wiki/wiki.cgi/files/a2dp-alsa-2016-01-02.tar.bz2)

If this is source code do I have to compile this. I don't know how to do this. I have installed the other packages.

Regards,

Ken.

@ mistfire
I gave up trying to find a suitable copy of bleuz and deleted the test save file I made to try it.

I then tried pBluetooth with PuppyBT installed. It ran and detected the external bt dongle and external bt speakers that had paired without a problem before but would not pair. I uninstalled pBluetooth. This appeared to break PuppyBT as well as remove the icons. I reinstalled PuppyBT and all is well again. I think I'll wait to see how others get on.

Ken.

Thats strange, pBluetooth uses the same component and files as PuppyBT

a2dp-alsa is already included in the package
Here is the bluez-4.99 package. I repacked it from slackware

Thanks for the bluez pet. I will make a new test lucid save file to test. This will give it a chance without another BT manager in the save file. I'll report back and let you know how it goes.

I still have problems. If I click on pBluetooth in the network menu the window appears. If I select "Adapter" then "Check local bluetooth device" then click OK nothing happens but the app freezes. Mouse still works but nothing can be clicked. Have to shut machine off using Cnrl-Alt-BkSp then poweroff to shut down. If I don't click OK I can shut the window by clicking "x". The only thing I'm using that you have not provided is obexd-0.21-i485.pet. Is this OK?

Ken.

Hello,

Thank you for your hard work with this bluetooth manager.
I am currently running tahr6.0.5. I have installed all the pets that you included.

My bluetooth dongle is recognized however I still cant get it to work.
It says that it is paired with my bluetooth speaker but I dont hear anything out of the bluetooth speaker.

I was able to connect my bluetooth keyboard and gamepad.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

@blu.js7914 set your sound output of your player to alsa in order to get sound on bluetooth speaker. I tested it on gnome-mplayer

Bonjour mistfire,
As I didn't succeed in making pBluetooth work on my Puppy, I noticed that the /root/Startup/bluetooth and the /usr/sbin/pbluetooth scripts both exit:
Code:
if [ "$(lsusb | grep bluetooth)" == "" ] && [ "$(lsusb | grep Bluetooth)" == "" ][...]

"My" command lsusb currently returns:
Code:
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 04f2:b14e Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd
Bus 006 Device 002: ID 0b05:17cb ASUSTek Computer, Inc.
Bus 007 Device 002: ID 1267:0210 Logic3 / SpectraVideo plc LG Optical Mouse 3D-310
[...]

and...
Code:
Bus 006 Device 002: ITheD 0b05:17cb ASUSTek Computer, Inc.

... is my adapter: duly present/identified, but not described as "bluetooth" or "Bluetooth" device...
So, replacing these lines with:
Code:
if [ "`rfkill list | grep luetooth`" = "" ];
makes the scripts both work, I should rather say, makes my device to be taken into account and the main interface be displayed.
Now, everything remains to be done! Wink

I thought it was important to point this out.

Cordialement.

Bonsoir et merci!
Is it possible to have some explanations about the "Comm" tab?
What are "Network" and "Serial" used for? Please, what does it mean exactly?

[EDIT]:
Quote:
Shift user interface from dialog to Xdialog

I just discover this point... and I previously took the liberty to do it for an adapted version of Arrow pBlutooth for Puppy Precise/ToOpPy users, with some "cosmetics" to make the interface match with ToOpPy...

Cordialement.
