Hey folks,
this is a simple bluetooth reconnect thingy I threw together because my speakers kept disconnecting. Has an option to restore playing state for mpris-enabled players.

There may be bugs, but this might be useful for someone else, so… have fun.
  • Functional part is mostly ripped out of the device settings' qml, with some minor alterations.
  • May not work for all SFOS-versions, only briefly tested on 2.0.0.10 (Saimaa) on the phone.

version 0.1 r2
  • mpris play on connect option
  • missing strings added to gui

This is what it looks like:

What have you changed? Been only using my jolla with laptop and had no disconnects so far (unless visiting neighbours and walls interrupted connectivity), is the source available?

Basically I took the settings page, deleted some things and put a new UI with the reconnector stuff on it.

Everything I did was QML (the rest, except for the icon, is a standard SDK project), so you could unpack the rpm for the source… but be aware that this is basically the UI equivalent of a personal shell script that I quickly hacked together one evening.

Perhaps it's my speakers fault, the connection can be quite fragile. [edit]But on most devices, those speakers work a lot better than on my Jolla Phone…[/edit]

Hmm, this won't work at all on your trusty maemo flagship of better days, since this really just is "things found in jollas bluetooth settings with a different interface". I haven't used bluetooth much in my n900 times, and don't really know how to help you there. Sorry to disappoint.

edit: the guys over in https://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=50077 may be able to help you…

Update on openrepos! This may turn out to become useful after all.

New Option: bleh now tries to play paused media if it thinks you have not paused it yourself.

version 0.1 r2
  • mpris play on connect option
  • missing strings added to gui

Have you had a look to see if the firmware of your bluetooth device can be upgraded?, I had similar problems with my first pair of Bose Ae2W, they got sent back to Bose, who sent a new pair - same problem. Eventually, after talking to a rep at Bose, he directed me to a firmware upgrade page.

Just a thought.

Just a heads up:
I've received word that bleh does not start on recent SFOS versions (at least 2.1.3.7+) – which was to be expected, as the whole thing was kind of a dirty hack for the half-broken BT on my first J1 well over two years ago.

I don't currently have a development machine at home (and might not have one for the next weeks), so looking into it may take quite a while. But I do plan on investigating this further eventually.

cheers!
