    Hi,

    I have a Nokia E90 and I can easily connect with Bluetooth.

    Just use kbluetooth applet in the task bar.
    Once the phone is detected it may ask to exchange the sec code.

    you can even set the phone to make your PC a trusted device on your nokia and then simply use Konqueror to navigate on the phone storage without pressing always the ok button on the phone.


    Regards,
    Pedro

    thanks for your answer
    though i ment through usb not bluetooth (sorry i forgot to mention)

    i tried everything and anyhing that works i just can dial number with them and i cant ,say,view my stored numbers

    but the most important feature that i want is transfering file between my N90 and suse

    so file the thing that works (though partially )is obexftp

    it can list my file and get and put to/from my phone.
    thogh it does'nt work with its GUI so with CLI its frustrating .

    any ideas?

    Default finally i succeeded

    i got my n90 usb connection working

    it is great and one step closer to getting rid of windows for ever


    i did it this way

    (please remember that this procedure is for connecting N90 and other nokia phones that don't have usb Mass storage option for their usb connnection(so their usb connection cant work like ,say, sonyericson k750) .like N90 6630 ,,,)

    0-you have to be in admin acoount (I am sure there is a workaround for this )

    1- install obexftp and its dependencies

    2- the download obexftp-frontend

    3- extract to your home

    4-plug your usb cable to pc & your phone(there should be a usb icon on your phone showing that is connected)

    5-(in admin account) in terminal type

    obex_test -u

    my output was :

    Using USB transport, querying available interfaces
    Interface 0: Nokia Nokia N90 SYNCML-SYNC
    Interface 1: Nokia Nokia N90 PC Suite Services
    Use 'obex_test -u interface_number' to run interactive OBEX test client

    6-for testing it
    (in admin account) in terminal type
    obexftp -u 1 -l
    note that
    a) its -u -l(lower l) -1(number 1)
    b)(1 for Interface 1: Nokia Nokia N90 PC Suite Services)you may have to change it according to your output

    again my output was :
    Connecting...done
    Receiving "(null)"... <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <!DOCTYPE folder-listing SYSTEM "obex-folder-listing.dtd"
    [ <!ATTLIST folder mem-type CDATA #IMPLIED>
    <!ATTLIST folder label CDATA #IMPLIED> ]>
    <folder-listing version="1.0">
    <folder name="C:" user-perm="RW" mem-type="DEV" label="Phone memory"/>
    <folder name="E:" user-perm="RW" mem-type="MMC" label="Memory card"/>
    </folder-listing>done
    Disconnecting...done

    so you see that it can see my mmc card drive


    7- (CLI) obexftp has command line abilities for communicating with your mmc card

    8-(GUI) for gui you should use obexftp-frontend
    a)extract it and go to its folder
    b)make obexftp-frontend-core-XXXX.jar (xxx version number) executable then open it with java ot type in terminal (again in admin account)
    java -Dswing.defaultlaf=org.jvnet.substance.skin.SubstanceCremeLookAndFeel -jar obexftp-frontend-core-0.6.5.jar

    (the Run.sh script is supposed to do this command but for me i had to type it myself) )


    9-when the GUI window is ready go to option and in the bottom of option windows select USB for device communication and in delete <device number> and replace it with 1 (again this is the number that obex_test gave me for "Nokia Nokia N90 PC Suite Services" that seems to works .and dont forget to uncheck "get device info"

    then test it with test button and it should say connection established

    then close the option window and then in obexftp-frontend click on magnifier icon(get root list)
    and your good to go )

    Default Great!

    Congratulations!

    Great work.
    I simply use the bluetooth tools and it simply works.
    I can see all folders inside all info ... data exchange is the most simple thing to do.

    It's simple to GET bluetooth for your computer...cost
    me $14 from NewEgg over a year ago...just a simple
    USB/Bluetooth adapter is all that is needed.

    e.g.:
    Newegg.com - TRENDnet TBW-105UB USB 2.0 Compact Bluetooth Adapter - Network - Bluetooth

    Hope this helps...
