Guide for streaming audio to DietPi via Bluetooth?

Is there a guide for how to use the built in bluetooth to stream audio?


  1. I’ve turned BT on via the DietPi software
  2. Ran
$ sudo bluetoothctl

in a terminal
3. Turned on an agent, set it as a default, and paired my phone


  1. I can’t reconnect once the link is closed
  2. The entry for my phone indicates the connection is only for contact sharing (which isn’t what I want).

within bluetoothctl, I get

[bluetooth]# show

And now I’m lost. Is there an easier way to do this via the DietPi interface?

There’s a few guides around the net which shouldn’t take much tweaking to work with DietPi. Have a look at this one:

The first thing you’ll need to do is change your device class in the bluetooth config file which tells you phone that the pi is an audio device
