BlueTooth at LXQT

How are things with BlueTooth at LXQT?

$ systemctl status bluetooth

bluetooth.service - Bluetooth service
     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service; enabled; preset: enabled)
     Active: active (running) since Mon 2023-04-03 11:44:00 EEST; 8h ago
   Main PID: 1027 (bluetoothd)
     Status: "Running"

But there are no menu entries
“Add Bluetooth Device”
“Bluetooth File Transfer”
like LUbuntu (also LXQT)

I will explain what I want.
I have a powerful audio amplifier with bluetooth input.
Sometimes I want listen my Hard’n’Heavy music at powerful audiospeakers instead laptop speakers
(to the delight of the neighbors :-)))

How can I send music via bluetooth?

There is bluez and blueman. Did you test both?

Check with sudo dnf list blue*

Seems like LXQT still does not have a preferred Bluetooth GUI.

I use blueman and recommend it (if you don’t mind a GTK app). It’s used by Xfce and Cinnamon spins. There’s also blueberry which is used by Mate spin.

bluez is the package for the main Linux Bluetooth tools like bluetoothctl, not a GUI.
