How to route sound to Bluetooth headphones?
I managed to get my headphones to connect to bluetooth using the info i found on this thread
Ok, for those wanting to install bluetooth in Slacko 5.3.1:
Open Puppy Package Manager
Install the following
Bluez libs and utilities
bluez hcidump (may not be needed but it won't hurt)
Bluetooth-0.4.pet from here
You should also be able to find the last one mirrored here in case smokey01's host let's the smoke out of their servers.
You should see a bluetooth icon in the task bar.
It should be fairly straight forward from there- make sure to set it to 'visible'
You should also have some Icons in the network menu such as Bluetooth Wizard.
Now you should be able to use bluetooth, and if you have a bt keyboard like me, you should be able to boot Slacko, and simply turn on the keyboard to have it start working.
If it doesn't work then check for missing dependencies and libs, and try the console commands posted above!
And above all make sure to let us know how it goes!!
But i cannot get sound to come through my headphones. any info on how to do this would be appreciated.
