I don't know if this is relevant, but this works in F10 (GNOME).

1. Go System > Preferences > Internet and Network > Personal File Sharing
2. Check Share Public files over Bluetooth
3. Check Receive files in Download folder over Bluetooth
4. Close to save settings
5. Now you (should) be able to receive files from bonded Bluetooth devices

Hope this may be the answer.

Hi. I still don't get it. I'm using onboard bluetooth on my laptop, running fedora 10. I can send files to my nokia 6681 but not receive, although I paired them and trusted my device.

I can neither send nor receive... when I try to assign a name to my PC bluetooth, nothing happens.. a screenshot may illustrate the problem



when I enter ANY name inside the Friendly Name field, and change the Visibility Settings to Always visible then click OK, once I return to this window again, the whole fields are gone, and im back to point zero.. I don't know what might be the problem.. and any help would be appreciated..

Running kernel 2.6.27.7-134.fc10.i686
Packages installed:
bluez-4.19-1.fc10.i386
gvfs-1.0.3-1.fc10.i386
1:obex-data-server-0.4.1-1.fc10.i386

I see that your screenie isn't showing your device at all. I had a similar problem, the command hciconfig showed that I had a bluetooth device but it wasn't listed in bluetooth-applet. I still haven't fixed everything but it seems that this is all related to a security flaw in dbus. Updating dbus seems to have broken several other apps that require it including bluetooth-applet.

My issues started about a week ago when I updated, to get things halfway working again I grabbed PolicyKit and almost all of the bluez packages from the fedora updates-testing repo. Here's the command I used:

yum --enablerepo updates-testing install PolicyKit bluez bluez-alsa bluez-cups bluez-gnome bluez-libs gvfs-obexftp

I can see my phone and bluetooth dongle now, I can even bond the two. Sending and receiving files still doesn't work though.

On a similar note the backlight on my keyboard stopped working at the same time bluetooth quit. Probably related to the dbus update. Waiting for updates might be the best way to resolve this.

I just wanted to say thanks, that's solved my problem when trying to send files over bluetooth from my Nokia N82 to Fedora 10.

It'd be nice if you could get it do do a 'Save As' prompt like it does on Windows, instead of being in downloads all the time. Plus there's a little icon that looks like a pyramid with radio waves coming out of the top - that's turned up in the notification area after receiving the file... it doesn't have any actions with left or right click and doesn't disappear.

I didn't see a notification of receiving the file either, even though I had this option checked in the 'Personal File Sharing' settings.

Bluetooth in FC10 broke for me as well. Had been working nicely in FC9 once I'd learned of the Notification Area.

But recently it is unfortunately useless.
hcitool finds my phone.
I can pair to it via the applet, but I now get Obex errors whenever I try to browse files on the device.

I tried updating with the test option as above and it is still broken.

The phone and USB dongle work ok under Windows on my laptop.

The error message I am seeing most often is:

Could not display "obex://[00:12: D2:6D:05:E9]/".
Error: Connection to the device lost
Please select another viewer and try again.

Overall my experience of FC10 has been poor. I wish I had stayed with FC9 as it had less bugs.
(Sound was broken, bluetooth is now broken and Gnome won't save application settings.)

any help appreciated

James

A subsequent auto-update fixed this problem.

Same problem sending file to BT computer

Hi All,

I have same problem sending file from mobile phone to my laptop. Receiving is fine
I have had similiar issue when I still used F9/F10 then I did a yum update then the problem was gone.
Now I am using F11 and the problem occurs again.
My BT packages :
gnome-bluetooth-2.27.5-1.fc11.i586
bluez-4.42-1.fc11.i586
bluez-cups-4.42-1.fc11.i586
gnome-bluetooth-libs-2.27.5-1.fc11.i586
bluecurve-cursor-theme-8.0.2-3.fc11.noarch
pulseaudio-module-bluetooth-0.9.15-14.fc11.i586
bluez-libs-4.42-1.fc11.i586

I do not have KDE.

Hopefully someone can figure out what's really the problem

Regards,

Ari

BT Problem Solved

Problem solved by using Ngch solution.
Sorry but didn't see that there is actually second page exist.
Anyway Thanks Ngch.

To my opinion I like the old BT interface better, when we doesn't need to configure personal file sharing first, and we could directly do it all from the bluetooth preference.
This is kind of confusing.

Thanks a million everybody.

Regads,

Ari
