Logitech wireless music

Postby oliverjames on Mon Aug 13, 2007 5:15 am

The Logitech wireless music device plugs into the usb port and transmits by bluetooth audio streams from computer to a remote hifi amp, active speakers or headphones.

Does anyone know how to configure Mint Casandra in order to output sound through this device?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

There are two steps here
Is the device detected?
and how to get it to work.
The latter should simply be done by choosing the right source in your audio program in Amarok you use settings>interface and change in a pull down menu
The first is harder if it does not work

When I plug in the usb bluetooth transmitter I can select it from "options" within the volume control window. It also shows up in the hardware information window.

I'm not using Amarok. I have the XFCE desktop with Exaile. I cannot find an option for changing the sound device in Exaile or in RealPlayer.

Id like to be able to switch audio output of the first application (usually RealPlayer) to this usb device.

Any ideas?

Left click on the Volume Control plugin on the panel and under File --> Options you can change the device being used.

I've tried that, no change.

I suspect one needs to tweak a config file somewhere but as a relative newbie to Linux I'm not sure where to look.

I'd like the software to switch to the last available soundcard, assuming that is how this device would be seen - well it's a soundcard at the receiving end of a usb connected bluetooth device.

All suggestions welcome.
