[SOLVED] bluetooth file transfer - obex problem

I'm having problems again (this used to work perfectly) with bluetooth file transfers. Pairing and all is fine, but every file transfer fail - from my computer to the phone and vice-versa. Using gnome's "bluetooth-sendto" I get this from the command line:

$ bluetooth-sendto 
Gtk-Message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged.
Gtk-Message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged.
Acquiring proxy failed: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.bluez.obex: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.systemd1.LoadFailed: Unit dbus-org.bluez.obex.service failed to load: No such file or directory.

The dbus-org-bluez.obex.service error message appears as soon as I select a file to send to the paired device.

I have installed:

dbus 1.10.0-3
gnome-bluetooth 3.16.1-1
bluez 5.34-1
bluez-libs 5.34-1
bluez-plugins 5.34-1
bluez-utils 5.34-1

---

Update - I noticed that my systemd version was 226-1, but the first boot message is 'Starting version 225'. So I downgraded systemd, then obex file transfers are OK again

Second Digital Deduction: Everything go wrong at least once.
Third Digital Deduction: Things go wrong even when there's absolutely no possibility of anything go wrong.

Re: [SOLVED] bluetooth file transfer - obex problem

Thanks toga! Nice first post!

The first command didn't work

Failed to get D-Bus connection: No such file or directory

But the 2nd command got things working wink
