[SOLVED] Bluetooth issues after recent bluez upgrades

It appears that gnome-obex-send has been obsoleted in favour of bluetooth-send. I'm able send files from my mobile to laptop but not viceversa. I get "Bluetooth OBEX server failed: The name org.openobex was not provided by any .service files" when doing that.

Both my mobile and laptop are able to 'see' each other as you can see below.

Re: [SOLVED] Bluetooth issues after recent bluez upgrades

Same problem here. Have been working with it for hours - but it just fails. The bluetooth package was disowned. roman kyrylych now has it. dunno if he has done anything to it yet. also tried with blueman - but it seems blueman is also in some way depending on the obex.

Re: [SOLVED] Bluetooth issues after recent bluez upgrades

blueman appears to be completely broken (it still uses gnome-obex-send, which does not exist anymore).
Anyone got any clue?

Re: [SOLVED] Bluetooth issues after recent bluez upgrades

obex-data-server is required which is not available in the repos. Thanks to Thomas Bächler for pointing this out.

I have created PKGBUILD for obex-data-server in AUR. See http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=15549

Install obex-data-server from AUR. Restart bluetooth. You should now be able to send files from your PC to mobile phones using the bluetooth applet tray icon.

Case closed.

Re: [SOLVED] Bluetooth issues after recent bluez upgrades

I have had similar problems but managed to get files transfered to my phone using  bluetooth-sendto ...

Now I used search on forum to find bluetooth [threads] and this one did not show up [was not at the top of list] ... had to go onto google to find it ;-S

Will check wiki not sure there is much Bluetooth stuff on there

Re: [SOLVED] Bluetooth issues after recent bluez upgrades

As far as I understand, obex-data-server will have the /usr/bin/gnome-obex-send binary right? As soon as it is built, I'll add a notice to blueman's install script.
