Bluetooth on LXDE


Currently i'm running the LXDE desktop on Debian 5 (Lenny). I have a set of wireless bluetooth speakers which I'd like to connect to the unit. I have the Bluetooth package installed for use with my USB Broadcom Bluetotoh Dongle, but can't seem to figure out how to connect to the speakers for streaming A2DP.

I'd like to find a good GUI for connecting to stereo Bluetooth devices, preferably something stand alone that doesn't require me to download half of the GNOME/KDE libraries to run as I have a really old machine with limited memory.

I can find the speakers via the hcitool command from the terminal, and wouldn't be opposed to doing all my connection, etc. from the console, but I can't make heads or tails of it. I've read all the man pages on bluetooth that come with Debian, and all the info I find online seems outdated and/or stool.

Can someone at least point me in the right direction?
