How do I change the path to which gnome-obex-server saves the received files? It saves to $HOME which is a bit annoying, I'd like to have the received objects within a own folder. It doesn't seem to have a config file or gconf entry.

@gmoney:

Hi, I got myself a Nokia 6230 and bluetooth works fine (I can e.g. copy pictures to the phone).
But now I'm trying to set up synchronization between the nokia and evolution via syncml, but it does not work yet. Can you perhaps post the steps you did to make your phone sync via bluetooth/syncml?
Furthermore, does anyone know a possibility to sync a SyncML capable device with the kde adressbook?

Hmm, now I get the following when plugging in my BT device:
Code:

ehci_hcd 0000:00:1d.7: GetStatus port 2 status 003002 POWER OWNER sig=se0  CSC
hub 1-0:1.0: port 2, status 0000, change 0001, 12 Mb/s
ehci_hcd 0000:00:1d.7: GetStatus port 3 status 001803 POWER sig=j  CSC CONNECT
hub 1-0:1.0: port 3, status 0501, change 0001, 480 Mb/s
hub 1-0:1.0: debounce: port 3: delay 100ms stable 4 status 0x501
hub 1-0:1.0: port 3 not reset yet, waiting 50ms
ehci_hcd 0000:00:1d.7: port 3 full speed --> companion
ehci_hcd 0000:00:1d.7: GetStatus port 3 status 003801 POWER OWNER sig=j  CONNECT


Is that good?


Still nothing when I run hciconfig though... :cry:

Could this be related to my troubles?

(partial) output of lspci:
Code:

0000:00:1d.0 USB Controller: Intel Corp. 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) USB UHCI #1 (rev 02)

0000:00:1d.7 USB Controller: Intel Corp. 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) USB2 EHCI Controller (rev 02)


I have both UHCI & EHCI...?!?

Code:

* This new version of kde-bluetooth provide a replacement for the
 * standard bluepin program called "kbluepin"!!!
 *
 * If you want to use it, you have to edit your "/etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf"
 * and change the line "pin_helper oldbluepin;" with "pin_helper /usr/bin/kbluepin;"
 * Then restart hcid to make the change working

Hope this helps

Hi!
Nice tutorial indeed.
Pushing data from my mobile to my PC (using gnome-obex-server) works fine, but how do I put data from my PC to my mobile, not using nautilus?
I just can't figure it out.

Thanks!

gnome-obex-send from the prompt works - can you set your file manager to do that?

Hi,
thanks for your replay first of all :D

I own a SE T610 (if it matters).
gnome-obex-send gave me following output on the console:


Code:


daniel@host daniel $ gnome-obex-send -d 00:0A:D9:35:A3:8E download/Gentoo_V1.thm
** Message: Sending to 00:0A:D9:35:A3:8E
** Message: Attempting to connect on channel 0


Then the error pops up in a dialog box:
Code:

The device you are trying to send to doesn't support receiving objects.


Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Are you sure that your device supports the required functions? Try using hcitool to work out what functions yours supports. Sadly I'm at work so can't check what my Nokia 6820 gives me until later today.

Yes, I'm sure. I tried it with Windows and it worked there.

Here's the output from sdptool:

Seems like it does support file transfer in both directions...

Got it working now.

I read somewhere that I should try to add these lines to /etc/modules.conf.
Gentoo style in /etc/modules.d/aliases.

Code:

# BlueZ modules
alias net-pf-31 bluez
alias bt-proto-0 l2cap
alias bt-proto-2 sco
alias bt-proto-3 rfcomm
alias bt-proto-4 bnep
alias bt-proto-5 cmtp
alias tty-ldisc-15 hci_uart
alias char-major-10-250 hci_vhci


Now everything works, even the neat remote control plugin for xmms :D

Hey,

Nice tutorial, almost everything works .. except for one things:
When I enter bluetooth:/// in Nautilus I get

"bluetooth:///" is not a valid location.
Please check the spelling and try again.

Anyone knows why?

Thanks in advance

andyjeffries (et al) i found the only way this works for me off of start up is to do things manually. moreover, for some reason (i'm new to this stuff as of tonight, so maybe i'm missing something obvious but anyway) you have to run hciconfig first, before /etc/init.d/bluetooth start. so the order is

Code:
# hciconfig
# /etc/init.d/bluetooth start
# hcitool [dev|scan|whatever]

does anyone actually have nice, easy p&p going?

p.s. any word on obexftp w/ bluetooth? i dled 0.10.4-rc3 which is supposed to have bluetooth but it doesn't seem to work yet.

The Gnome Phone Manager (no ebuld - 2004.MAY.6) seems like an excellent addition to the Gnome Bluetooth Subsystem (ebuild).


I'm currently trying to get this thing installed, but it crashes during make, complaining about gsm.cc. I have emerged gsmlib, but that doesn't help.

Have anyone recently compiled and installed this app?

(Installed:
gsmlib: 1.11_pre030826
libsigc++ 1.2.5

Great tutorial, kudos.

However, I'm having a strange problem. My old phone, a SE T616, can recognize my computer just fine (yippie!), however my new phone, a Motorola v505, can not!

Does anyone have any ideas on what the problem might be? If I tell both devices to search at the *same* time only the SE comes up with a device.

Okay, new problem. I was able to get the devices to pair by sending a file from my desktop to my v505. However, when I go to send something from the v505 to the desktop, it says "Service not supported". Yes, I have the gnome-obex-server running... Weird.

EDIT: Nevermind, fixed. I restarted gnome-obex-server and it worked. Hmm....

I've got the same error.
I noticed that this is caused by not being able to find libbluetooth.so.

Did you manage to fix this?

Maybe it's because you have three slashes? I recall testing it with two and two of my phones showing up immediately.

I am trying to get this working with gammu, but it seems rather unsupported as of yet. I can see my phones with hcitool scan and so on, but gammu just won't talk to it and reading the manual is rather trying. I need some software to send and receive sms-messages with. I'll give gnome phonemanager a try tonight.
