Description mikey 2015-08-23 06:28:40 EDT
Description of problem:

Trying to copy files to connected device appears to fail for many file types unless the file is zipped first. (There may be other file types it will accept but this is what I have found.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

bluez: 5.29
Connected device: Nexus 5 - Android 5.1.1

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. pair device to Gnome in bluetooth settings 
2. open device and check connection is "on"
3. try to "Send File" 
4. observe the error message "error"
5. Zip up the file
6. try to "Send File" selecting the Zip
7. observe that the file is sent

Tested with a plain text file, with a keepass file and with an "epub".

Tested with a "jpeg" and that worked without zipping.

Actual results:

Error transferring file.

Expected results:

File to transfer to phone.

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2015-11-04 05:44:24 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 21 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 21. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '21'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 21 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2015-12-02 10:03:54 EST
Fedora 21 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-12-01. Fedora 21 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
