Bluetooth audio - connects to device, but no audio output

I'm using KDE and have been trying to play audio from a Bluetooth speaker I bought. It's nothing swanky.

I have successfully connected to the device over Bluetooth however I cannot play any audio out of it. I've attached some screenshots... please let me know if I need to supply further information.

I have tested the Bluetooth speaker using my phone and it plays back fine using that.

Any help gratefully received. Thanks.

Re: Bluetooth audio - connects to device, but no audio output

i have mostly resorted installing all packages

bluetooth*

and

blueman*

when bluetooth was needed.

it seems there has been not so much progress with bluetooth, especially when one wants to use alsa-only.



However, blueman may be gnome specific, and not inclueded in Devuan?
it always seemed to me that with gnome, bluetooth was neatlier integreated, but i would also prefer KDE over it.

To broadcast audio over bluetooth,   :  https://wiki.debian.org/BluetoothUser/a2dp
(this is something I'm also interested to achieve, so by now this is only a first draft for a possible contribution; later I'll edit this post to move it to new one in case is needed)
