Motorola S9 Bluetooth Headset

So my friend game me a cute little birthday present, a Motorola S9 Bluetooth Headset.

Making it work under Linux was not very difficult but still has to catch-up in terms of utils.

To make the headset work, I just had to run a scan on the Linux host, and get the hw address and specify it in .asoundrc.

pcm.bluetooth {
type bluetooth {
address = xx.xx.xx.xx.xx

And then to play a file, like in mplayer, you just specify the alsa device.

mplayer -ao alsa:device=bluetooth foo.ogg

KDE’s Phonon currently doesn’t show the Bluetooth Headset even if it is paired.

PulseAudio doesn’t work good. (I couldn’t make it work in my limited attempt)
