I could pair gnome 3.6 and my phone and send “files” from computer to
phone over bluetooth
After researching this a bit more, it seems what I want linux to be is a bluetooth “audio sink.” Several articles describe how to set this up. Unfortunately, all of them start with modifying /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf, a file that does not exist here.
Should /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf exist? Why is it not part of opensuse?
How do I create it? Manually by copying it from somewhere? Or does it spring into existence when an unspecified module is installed?
Well, yes, I could simply create it manually. But would it do any good?
To rephrase the question: Is there something to install that would create the conf file?
Yet further research seems to indicate that opensuse does not support the Bluetooth A2DP protocol that would allow it to act as an audio source or sink. AFAICT just adding the /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf would serve no purpose.
