I am trying to get my Bluetooth setup going on Ubuntu 12.10.
I have been installing and uninstalling different Bluetooth utilities, and although I can scan for and see my mobile phone and my other computer's Bluetooth connection, and can pair OK with my phone, I cannot seem to browse the files on my phone or transfer files. The best I can see is a fleeting window when I try to browse files, but then that's it.
I guess to start with what I need to do is get a more practical approach to setting Bluetooth up properly, so I wonder whether anyone knows what basic packages I need to install (and by simple deduction uninstall the other that I have installed but should not be there) to get Bluetooth going.
I have no problems with accessing my phone with my wife's Windows XP laptop.
