    Pyra Bluetooth Support thread (Please keep all random chit-chat out of here as this is a thread for OS Developers / Dev board owners to discuss possible implementation and additional features, any random chit-chat will be deleted and repeat offenders may suffer the consequences).

    Current Status:

    Not installed but easily added by 

    sudo apt-get install bluetooth (installs bluetooth + bluez)

    We need to decide on a GUI front end which is lightweight but extremely functional

    Suggested features / scripts for Driver:

    Functional non interrupted bluetooth audio (continuous stream until stopped)

    EASY (That is no manual configuration and digging into text documents) usage and support for multiple devices

    Documentation Suggestions:

    Pairing Devices

    Configuring various bluetooth controllers

    Who is implementing? 

    I'm having a go at this one!

    Pressuing the device-power button in the powercluster should bring up a menu to power off or on wifi or bluetooth. Possibly something that can be done in notification system du jour.

    Blueman ok?

    Jorjin wg7351 has bluetooth 4.0, which i think means low-power modes and additional features.  We should make sure we pick something where those are supported if available.

    If one wants to do it manually its

    /etc/bluetooth/
    audio.conf      input.conf      main.conf       network.conf    proximity.conf  rfcomm.conf     serial.conf    

    Maybe there are some handy scripts that could be left there, tethering and reverse-tethering for example.
