Puppy Forum member 'fr33land' has undertaken a great new initiative, Bluetooth support in Puppy Linux:
There have been other efforts, my own, named BluePup, found in the latest releases of Quirky x86_64 and Raspberry Pi, and Forum member 'rcrsn51' created peasyBT.
jamesbond has done excellent work with Bluetooth, and has created a utility, 'a2dp-alsa', that fr33land is using. It is described here:
I obtained the source of a2dp-alsa from here:
However, I then discovered that a2dp-alsa only works with bluez version 4.x. Right now, I am running SlaQ, a Quirky built from Slackware 14.2 binary packages, and bluez is version 5.4.
Phillip Berndt to the rescue. He has posted a patch for a2dp-alsa to support bluez5:
I have compiled it and created a PET, but not yet tested. I have uploaded the source and patch here:
