As i said before in a previous blog, i got a new headset as a gift from my uncle,, mm i tried to configure it in the first day but i failed,,, today i played again and yes i got it working,, here how i configured it.
I use Fedora 8 (yes i know currently there is F10 😛 ), my headset vendor is Teac, you will need to install the following packages:
bluez-utils, bluez-utils-alsa also gnome-bluetooth if you use gnome and wanna add it to the panel.
now use hcitool to seach about the device:
[idle-boy@localhost Enigma]$ hcitool scan
00:09:DD:70:D9:AA Stereo Headset
Now set your Headset to paring mode and do the following command to connect (as root):
[root@localhost ~]# hcitool cc 00:09:DD:70:D9:AA
Add the following to your ~/.asoundrc file (a file alsa use):
thats all, at least for me ,, i use mplayer,, to play a song:
[idle-boy@localhost Enigma]$ mplayer -ao alsa:device=bluetooth */*
for more info and other players, see this Documentation: http://wiki.bluez.org/wiki/HOWTO/AudioDevices
weeeeeew so nice to move your head without cables 😛
