kbluetooth doesn’t receive files

This tutorial was made by me cuz K99brain and jester from #ubuntu-it has asked me about kbluetooth …
i have never used kbluetooth but i get it working with the help of Enrico always from #ubuntu-it that has said me about the probability of a missing package…. and voilà i get it 🙂

check if you have installed :

rename your old configurartion file

 mv $HOME/.kde/share/config/kbluetoothrc  $HOME/.kde/share/config/kbluetoothrc.older 

then start kbluetooth

now go on settings——>bluetooth adapters and set some stuff liek ytou can see…

set your phone like discoverable and and add in your phone the device ….

it should ask you a password , in your phone put : 0000

then ….

kbluetooth shoud ask this :

type your password .

now you should be able to send like you can see here…

and receive …

NB this should be enought to enable your bluetooth but if you can’t send and receive try rebooting your pc … sometime i don’t know on some machine i get some strange problems on sending from my nokia … that after i have installed missing packages. After rebooting every thing seems is working fine yeaaaaa

    This does not work for me. My phone and computer seem to pair correctly, and I can send files from my computer to my phone, but sending files from my phone to my computer does not work. I get “unable to connect” and nothing at all happens on my computer.

    Well, there is one more issue — choosing a folder doesn’t work at all. Kbluetooth continues to place received files into the Document folder. Sad…
