Problems building a Bluetooth Audio Receiver with PiCore Linux
« on: January 06, 2017, 07:17:13 AM »
Hello friendly people from Tinycore!

I've been working on this for quite a while but i cannot get it to work on PiCore Linux.

My Goal: A headless Bluetooth Audio Reciever running Picore Player ( Pi Core Linux ).

I got it to work on Raspian Lite but I want to have it to run on PiCore linux because I will not shut it down but just unplug my Pi.

What I already know: I need to have : 
  • Bluez
  • PulseAudio
  • pulseaudio-module-bluetooth
  • alsa-utils

as packages.

I installed the Bluez-hcidump tcz extension to my Pi but the command:  bluetoothctl  or any other know command to me for using my blueooth dongle say: command not found.  I assume I need some other tools for that.

I was thinking about to use blueman. I about to compile it by myself but I am not sure if thats the right approach...

Was someone already able to create a Blueooth Audio Receiver with TC?

I am thankful for every help provided, if there is someone out there who can build the needed .tcz extensions I would be even more happy!

I hope someone is out there who can help me with that!
Thank you!

Hi Sepster,

I would also be highly interested in how to make that working. I would love to add that function to a running picoreplayer distro in order to get an all-in-one music device...

Could please any of the senior members give a short feedback and share some thoughts on this topic? Is the bluetooth receiver function thinkable?

Many thanks in advance.

I'm not too sure what is meant by "Bluetooth Audio Receiver", but using bluez, blueman and pulseaudio in corepure64, you can, for example, use a laptop as a bluetooth loudspeaker - for example to play music from an iPhone through a laptop speakers via bluetooth.
