kubuntu 10.04 browse your phone with kde & bluetooth

Well well well
now i get my nokia 5800 mounted on /media/blue

first … check to if you have

sudo apt-get install bluetooth bluez bluez-alsa bluez-cups bluez-gstreamer bluez-utils kdebluetooth libbluetooth3 python-bluez libmulticobex1 libobexftp0 libopenobex1 obex-data-server obexd-client python-obexftp obexfs

you should start bluetooth service with this command but maybe it’s not so neccessary

sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth start

create a folder where your nokia or your phone will be mounted by kubunut

sudo mkdir /media/bluetooth

scan to get your phone id with

hcitool scan

you will get something like

kubuntu@kubunut-laptop:~$ hcitool scan
Scanning …
00:BE:3A:4C:22:6F Montecristo

now type this to get the channel you should use

sdptool browse 00:BE:3A:4C:22:6F

you have to find out something like

ervice Name: OBEX File Transfer

Service RecHandle: 0x1001b
Service Class ID List:
“OBEX File Transfer” (0x1106)
Protocol Descriptor List:
“L2CAP” (0x0100)
“RFCOMM” (0x0003)
Channel: 8
“OBEX” (0x0008)
Language Base Attr List:
code_ISO639: 0x454e
encoding: 0x6a
base_offset: 0x100
Profile Descriptor List:
“OBEX File Transfer” (0x1106)
Version: 0x0100

so my channel to obex is 8

now mount your phone in the folder with (NOTE – instead of : )

sudo obexfs -b 00-BE-3A-4C-22-6F -B 8 /media/bluetooth

now you should be able to see your phone with

kdesudo dolphin

like you can see here
