General :: Browsing Files On Device Through Kde Bluetooth
Jun 1, 2010
I use fedora12-Gnome as my major desktop OS. Every basic need was fulfilled , until I tried Fedora12 KDE. The problem is with Bluetooth connectivity to my cell phone device.It connects to the cell phone and set trusted but I can't seem to see any option of "Browse files on Device".Does that mean in KDE I actually can not browse my Bluetooth connected devices?The same thing happened with Mandriva2010-Kde and Fedora13 Kde , I mean I guess It's related to KBluetooth app.
Dolphin does not currently browse bluetooth devices, and they are not automatically mounted or seen as potentially mountable. [As an interesting aside, I ran into a snag pairing my phone: I can initiate pairing for the first time, with pin and all, from the phone, but I cannot initiate such pairing from the computer. This behavior is identical under KDE and Gnome. Does anyone have a clue why? Both devices were bluetooth visible, so that isn't the problem.]
However, it is still possible to browse bluetooth devices, provided they have been paired, by executing obexfs -b <bluetooth address> <user-writeable mount point>. Unmounting is done through fusermount -u <mountpoint>. Now it seems to me to be very easy to extend Dolphin's functionality (and the device detecting/mounting application) to include the above behavior automatically. Case in point, Nautilus has no problem doing all that.
So, I'd like to file a bug report and prod the appropriate instances, but given that google searches on this issue bring up mostly old pages, I wonder whether anyone know whether (a) this is a KDEBluetooth issue, (b) a Dolphin issue, (c) a Fedora packaging issue, (d) other (please specify).

Not sure if this was the right place to post this. Recently installed Ubuntu Netbook remix on my netbook. On Windows I used IIS and pointed my website to a directory full of video files all in .avi containers, enabled directory browsing and could watch files in the browser on my PS3.
I'm wondering how I go about doing this in Apache? Since there isn't any GUI to do it for me like in IIS :P.
I've just installed Slackware 13.1 in two different laptops for first time. I have some strange internet browsing behaviour in one of the laptops. I've installed 2 internet browsers(firefox,opera) using the directions from Slackbuilds.org and there is also konqueror pre-installed. Moreover I installed Wicd network manager.
I can browse some pages e.g. ..... with firefox very slowly but NEVER facebook. I can browse almost any page, even facebook, with OPERA but very very slowly. The same goes with konqueror... Wicd shows that i am always connected with my WPA wireless network
I've been having trouble in a couple of distros (including when I had windows installed..) getting my bluetooth working,
I have a dell vostro 1720, and the specs from dell insist there's a bluetooth adapter installed, and the laptop even has a little light which (ostensibly) indicates data being transmitted via bt... and, it's enabled in the bios.
though, dmesg | grep bluetooth
gives no results.
I've read comments on dell bluetooth for other dists, but can't seem to find any deb-specific recommendations.
So, how do i confirm that this laptop does *in deed* have a bluetooth adapter.. and... if there is one... how do let the kernel know about it?
I'm struggling for pairing my laptop with my phone to dial up internet. On slack 13 I configured hcid.conf but on the new 13.1 with the new demon bluetoothd I don't know how to pair on command line.Documentation is not a lot, or I'm not able to find it.
I have laptop with bluetooth and I bought PS3 bluetooth remote. In windows this remote is working with EventGhost and I would like to use it in Fedora as well. This remote has to be paired without a pin code, which is how I paired it in windows.In Fedora, however, there is no such option "no pin" when using a standard way to connect bluetooth device.How can I pair this remote in Fedora?
I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 and bluetooth turn/off is not possible. However, with 2.6.37 kernel it is possible. Now i have gathered whole info about the device(mac adress, usb port etc) from 2.6.37 and what i need is to somehow use those info in kernel 2.6.38 so that bluetooth works.
lsusb in 2.6.37 (while bt is on)

I am developing an application which communicates with a bluetooth device.I do not want the user to pair or unpair the device using the Bluetooth applet or command line, but I want to automate the pairing process through my application. The application will scan and find the bluetooth devices in the proximity of the computer, and automatically pair the required device without any user input.Where should I look for the relevant APIs?
After a lot of messing around and research, I figured out how to actually get my bluetooth headphones to connect and stay connected. Although once I shut them off, remove the device and re-add it using Blueman.
Right now, `pavucontrol` shows "Headphones (unplugged)" and there is no sound coming out of the speakers. But there is no sound coming out of the headphones either. They are set to the fallback. I've opened `alsamixer` and made sure everything was turned up. Still, no sound.
Since `bt-audio` isn't on Jessie, I don't know what I should do. It seems like this may be the missing step but I am unsure.
I've been having a problem with Bluetooth on Debian 8 Jessie i just can't connect to any bluetooth device, i have only tested my smartphone and my bluetooth headphones, i am using blueman manager.After attempting to connect to my bluetooth headphones/smartphone it just disconnects and says "Connection Failed: No such file or directory",i don't know if i have to create a config file or something, the error message doesn't say anything but the error previously mentioned.
When a bluetooth controller I have connects I'd like a program launched (qjoypad) so that I can use it has a mouse. The controller has to be on before launching qjoypad otherwise qjoypad will not work.
So I was wondering if there is a way to launch a script when my controller connects, and then possibly when it disconnects to launch another script killing the qjoypad process.
EDIT: I created a script that checks if /dev/input/js0 exists, if it does then qjoypad is created
Code: #!/bin/bash while true; do if [ -c "/dev/input/js0" ]; then qjoypad

I have a bluetooth usb dongle which I cannot get to work. I start kbluetooth. The icon in system tray is blue (not grey). Right click on it -> Device Manager -> New The wizard starts. It sees my Palm, but then says: "Sorry your Bluetooth Device does not support input Service". I don't know what to do. Opensuse 11.3 kde 4.5 kbluetooth 0.4.2-10.5
I have got my headset connecting to the system using the BlueMan interface. When I first did this it gave me a error about not being able to put the sound on-top of 'pulseaudio'. Well this well about the last straw between me and Mr. 'PulseAudio', so away he went. I removed the demon via this instruction. [ubuntu] Safely Remove Pulseaudio?
I then tried connecting to my bluetooth headset again, no errors. But the bluetooth sound device does not show up in any mixer, or application. What else do I need to do to get this working again. I know my hardware is fine, it used to work in the previous version of Ubuntu and it all works on my wifes Windoze XP computer.
I've a custom startup script myscript.sh placed inside /etc/init.d/ directory with below lines to disable usb bluetooth device "hci0". This happens on Ubuntu Lucid.
Code: #!/bin/bash echo "Disabling hci0 bluetooth usb dongle" /usr/sbin/hciconfig hci0 down &
Here is the /var/log/daemon.log When I rebooted it worked fine disabling the bluetooth dongle. But, later on, it gets enabled! I've lost it!

Since i have 10.10 desktop i386 on my asus 901 im able connecting over bluetoth to my sony ericsson fone and get internet working! but i mmust everytime connecting doing the autorisation with the bluetooth device everytime conecting i must write for example 1 on both devices - laptop and handy,it must be on the linux software how can i turn off this issue!
I have a desktop running Ubuntu 10.10 and several terabytes of files on it. In Windows all I have to do is enable sharing and my Mac will see the shared folders right away and I have no problem browsing them. I read somewhere that it was essentially the same process in Ubuntu which I followed but I am unable to browse. The desktop does show up in OSX but when I click on it from Finder (Path Finder actually) I get a message saying "The server "Foo" may not exist or it is unavailable at this time. Check the server name or IP address, check your network connection, and then try again."
If I select "Connect to Server" under the Go menu in finder and type in smb://ip-address then I get one step further. I am asked to log in and I just click on guest (my user name and password didn't work) and then I get a list of all the shared folders but when I click on one I get a message very similar to the one above but not identical.
Everything I have found is about 5 years old. Or has anyone had similar issues and solved them? This is the first time I have ever tried any kind of networking in Linux but I am thinking Ubuntu 10.10 may have some sort of software firewall enabled by default?
I use Bluetooth on my laptop since many month, but afer a recent update (running jessie), my device stopped being usable :
