    Default kbluetooth4 - Can't Send or Receive Files

    Hello!

    I would like some assistance with kbluetooth4 on openSUSE 11.1 / KDE 4.2.

    After installing the bluez, etc. files, my usb bluetooth adapter got recognized, the kbluetooth4 icon appears on the system tray whenever I plug the usb adapter in and I can discover my Laptop from my mobile as well.

    Sending and receiving files though, seems to be broken. When I send a file from my mobile to the laptop, I get a notification whether to accept it or not, afterwards a status bar for the received file appears. That is as far as it goes. The moment the file gets 100% transfered nothing else happens nor the file seems to be somewhere to be found on the laptop. Sending files with kbluetooth4 doesn't work either.

    I tried installing the gnome bluetooth applet as an alternative as well. In this case sending files does work. Still I cannot receive anything.

    Any help here?

    I am using:
    kblueooth4 0.3
    bluez 4.22
    bluez-gnome 1.8
    gnome-bluetooth 0.11

    Thanks in advance

    I too found bluetooth a bit cryptic! I found that dolphin did not work with bluetooth at all well but Konqueror did - enter bluetooth:/ in the location bar

    Thanks for the reply!

    By entering "bluetooth:/" on Konqueror I only get the "Protocol not supported" error message. So that seems not to be working for me as well.

    I also got that message when i clicked the bluetooth icon - I have mislead you a bit - as i have both kde3 and kde4 installed I was using the kde3 version of konqueror with the kde4 desktop.

    I can send files from my phone to my laptop, but not the other way around...

    The files are located in ~/.kbluetooth4 after transfer.
