Bluetooth on Quirky and Puppy

March 27, 2016 — BarryK
Now that I have a laptop with Bluetooth builtin, my new Asus Vivobook E200HA, I am keen to implement support for it in Quirky Xerus (my latest Linux build).

Puppy Forum member tempestuous has paved the way for us:

And rcrsn51 has created a GUI, named peasyBT:

I have added the 'bluez' DEB package to my next Quirky build.
There is 'blueman' a GUI frontend, in the Ubuntu repo, however I am loath to install all of its dependencies.

I have also added 'bluez-tools', looks like might be useful:

I am just getting started, have never before setup Bluetooth support in Quirky (or Puppy).
