    Did the trick!

    If personal file sharing doesn't work, install libgnome frome synaptic.

    Cool Half solution is still a problem

    I did the following (the first only once):
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install obexfs
    So:
    Code:
    hcitool scan
    then I copied the MAC, say, FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF, and created a new directiory, say, MyPhone in Home, thus
    Code:
    obexfs -b FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF ~/MyPhone
    and after, to unmount:
    Code:
    fusermount -u ~/MyPhone
    But it is excessively slow. Browsing the content takes ages! And it becomes even worse when I attempt to download a file from the phone to the PC.

    BTW, the setting Receive Files over Bluetooth from the Personal File Sharing Preferences does not do the work, i.e. I still cannot send files from my phone to Ubuntu 11.10 (even if I can the the other way around, i.e. sending files from the PC to the phone).

    So, what are the next steps folks? Every suggestion is well appreciated!
    Thanks

    When I attempt to send a file from the phone, it replies with the following ERROR:
    Code:
    Cannot connect to the OBEX device.
    It is either not accessible or does not support selected service.
    And it gives me also an Action Failed notification:
    Code:
    Cannot copy the file 'file_name'. The remote system refused the network connection.
    Whereas Ubuntu (11.10) does not even notify any kind of warning or error.


    Anyway, installing obexfs, now I've got two icons. The former did/does not pair with the phone, whereas the latter does. Anyway, it allows me only to send (and not receive) files to the phone.
