I know that:

  • There are Bluetooth speakers for my phone and for my iPod
  • My desktop computer has Bluetooth dongle
  • My desktop has speakers attached to it;)

So, my question is: can I use my desktop PC as Bluetooth speakers for my iPod/mobile phone, preferably using Linux?

Just to note, I managed to do this on windows with Widcomm 6.2 and 6.4. Hopefully, we'll see this in BlueZ soon. – AndrejaKo Mar 9 '11 at 14:12

Theoretically yes, although the necessary support is not yet complete/available.

More details about the links would be nice. – Gnoupi Jul 3 '10 at 20:06
Meh. The links themselves are not interesting enough to warrant descriptions. They're just threads in the PulseAudio mailing list regarding getting BlueZ working as a source. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jul 3 '10 at 21:04
