I want to pair my Sony ericcson bluetooth earphones with my laptop and transfer the sound output to these instead of laptop speakers.
In the topmost panel i tried setting the preferences but no devices were detected in the GUI even though two bluetooth devices were availabel in the vicinity of my laptop (my smartphone and earphones).
I tried to find some information on this from google and found the following things to give a try.I tried them and got the following results:
# hcitool dev
# ./hciconfig -a

Now when i tried to scan my bluetooth devices i got the following result:
# hcitool scan
So can anybody please help me configure this properly and making it work?
Also how can i transfer the sound of my player to my bluetooth earphones, if successfully configured, instead of my laptop speakers.
I have the following music and video player : RythmBox music player and Movie Player, respectively on my Fedora 8 system.
