View Full Version : [ubuntu] Bluetooth confusion

July 10th, 2009, 05:08 AM
Wasn't sure whether to put this in Networking & Wireless or not, but anyway...

So, I'm a little confused with Bluetooth with my phone. I have an LG env3 (LG VX9200) and Bluetooth works fine with it, i.e. I can send/receive pictures, videos, mp3s, etc. However, I've been trying to explore my phone using Nautilus. I've installed the gnome-vfs-obexftp (which I was informed enabled Nautilus to use bluetooth functions) and when I try to navigate to "obex:///" through Nautilus, it says "Error: Invalid mount spec
Please select another viewer and try again." I'm pretty sure my phone supports the OBEX bluetooth profile, so what am I doing wrong?

This may seem silly, but make sure you have the phone in discovery mode when searching for a bluetooth device. I don't run 9.04, so I'm not sure if the bluetooth method is different at all :P
