  1. Yes, I managed to get the BT link to work! All it needed was a new BT dongle. OK; sorry for not trying that earlier, but it did look like it was connected OK. But that was the problem. Thanks for all your help in this! Here' a few virtuals for you guys. :beer:
  2. I think it may be a problem with my BT dongle. I'll scout for a new one and report back when I have tested a new one. I just tried this dongle with a different OS (Win7) and it didn't work there either.
  3. Thanks Ian, but no help. I checked from alsamixer, but nothing was muted (or something was, but turned it on). No help.
  4. OK, I guess I'll have to give up. Amongst other packages, I have these installed, but it's still not working: pulseaudio-module-bluetooth bluez-alsa bluez-gstreamer Thanks for all your assistance!
  5. OK. I don't seem to be able to do anything with the paprefs either...
  6. I've tried different combinations from pulseaudio preferences (paprefs), but nothing yet. I keep trying.
  7. Thanks Isadora for the suggestion, but it's already enabled.
  8. It's Mageia, but anyway...

  9. First: # chkconfig --list | grep -i pulse Note: This output shows SysV services only and does not include native systemd services. SysV configuration data might be overriden by native systemd configuration. And then I cannot get the service to work: # service restart pulseaudio Cannot find restart service Usage: service -[Rfshv] SERVICE ARGUMENTS -f|--full-restart: Do a fullrestart of the service. -R|--full-restart-all: Do a fullrestart of all running services. -s|--status-all: Print a status of all services. --ignore-dependencies: Do not start required systemd services --skip-redirect: Do not redirect to systemd -d|--debug: Launch with debug. -h|--help: This help. # service -f pulseaudio Cannot find /etc/init.d/pulseaudio Usage: service -[Rfshv] SERVICE ARGUMENTS -f|--full-restart: Do a fullrestart of the service. -R|--full-restart-all: Do a fullrestart of all running services. -s|--status-all: Print a status of all services. --ignore-dependencies: Do not start required systemd services --skip-redirect: Do not redirect to systemd -d|--debug: Launch with debug. -h|--help: This help. I can't find the pulseaudio service in the services list in MCC... So is it runnig and if it's not, how can I start it? I see that pulseaudio packages are installed and should be running. $ pulseaudio E: [pulseaudio] pid.c: Daemon already running. E: [pulseaudio] main.c: pa_pid_file_create() failed.
  10. OK, got the BT working. But I'm not sure if it sticks... When I try to connect to the device (D80), it shortly tells me "Creative D80: audio service connection timeout". But I can see that the dongle is now connected (see BlueDevil.png). However, I cannot see the BT output in Pulse audio volume control devices (see PulseVolume.png). There's only Speakers and Headphones. This headphones requires small audioplug connection and there's no choice for bluetooth and the speakers obviously output the sound in the speakers (and not on the BT device).
  11. Thx Ian. I was going to try that, but now I can't get the dongle to work... I can find it in MCC hardware section - Bluetooth devices - Bluetooth USB dongle (module: btusb). But the notifier says "Bluetooth is off". And on the System Settings (KDE system settings) Bluetooth devices cannot find any devices... I'll try to sort this out first and then will let you know how this worked.
  12. I recently bought a Creative D80 BT speaker. I would like to be able to listen to my music collection on my backyard, but I cannot get the audio on my Acer laptop to play through BT dongle/Creative D80 speaker. I've managed to make the speaker work with my Nokia E7 phone and iPad (3rd gen), but how can I make my Mageia laptop play through BT. I was able to make the pairing OK (BlueDevil found the Creative D80 speaker OK), but I cannot direct the sound to the BT speaker. Is there anyone who would be able to help me out here...? :unsure:
  13. Yes, running Mag2 on two of my computers and they are working very nice. I was a bit upset about the non-free drivers missing and the free drivers for my NVidia NIC not working. That caused me problems on both machines. I couldn't get the screen to work for a long time. The solution for me was to get the system running up to the point where it stopped loading due to "no screen" and switching to another session with Ctrl-Alt-F2. Then I could log in and install the xorg vesa driver to get the screen to work (as Yankee did). Before I could come up with that solution I had to re-install the system and that whole upgrade/install mess was a pain. Still managed to keep my /home partition, but I think I messed up my other partitioning in the process as I was originally just updating from Mag1 to Mag2 through on-line upgrade. So once you know that issue (even with upgrade from Mag1 to Mag2) and get to boot to GUI (mine is KDE4), then it seems very nice. I haven't been able to use 3D desktop on my better rig (with NVidia GeForce GTX560 Ti 2GB), and the problems with Compiz continues as is the case with Yankee. But all and all, I've been very happy with Mageia - now running Mag2 and liking it. It does include Gimp 2.8.0 which has the single window mode and a few other goodies.
  14. I don't consider myself particularily talented, but do like to fool around with the graphics (gimp mainly)... Also, I'm quite busy at work these days, so I don't have too much leisure time on my hands. With all this, I don't know if I'm able to help, but if you like, I could take a shot at it. :unsure: = I'm not a gynecologist, but I'll take a look = :P
