Bluetooth send / receive?

Sun Jan 17, 2016 11:48 am

When trying to send files (for example calling 'bluetooth-send'), I get this kind of error.

Code: Select all

$ bluetooth-sendto
...
Acquiring proxy failed: Virhe kutsuttaessa StartServiceByName kohteelle org.bluez.obex: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Process org.bluez.obex exited with status 1
Sorry for 'finglish' :).. But anyway, what is the status of Bluetooth support? Should it be possible to send/receive files via Bluetooth?

I can't seem to send files either over here.
Trying to send to my phone (on an AOSP 6.0 ROM where otherwise Bluetooth is functioning as it should).
Haven't had time to try sending from my phone to my desktop yet.

Update: My desktop isn't receiving files either.

Have you tried these commands?
systemctl --user start obex
sudo systemctl --global enable obex

It worked for me! :)

Whoa, I don't really use the forums much nowadays, so I haven't seen this until now.

I had actually forgotten about the entire this, since I simply use USB, however I'll test it out a bit later.

Thanks for the tip, though!
