nautilus-sendto-bluetooth invokes gnome-obex-send with a file:/ URL.
But gnome-obex-send just expects a filename, not a URL. 

Reassigning to nautilus-sendto.

Still present in FC6 release with updates applied as of 2006-11-12.

Effectively means that files can't be sent using bluetooth without dropping to
the command line and using gnome-obex-send.

You need at least version 0.8 of gnome-bluetooth for nautilus-sendto to work
properly with URIs. They were both released at around the same time, but
nautilus-sendto got updated, not gnome-bluetooth...
Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2007-03-06 08:10:56 EST
should work with the gnome-bluetooth update I made..
Comment 7 Matthew Miller 2007-04-06 14:14:43 EDT
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.

[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]

Works for me now; FC6 gnome-bluetooth-0.7.0-11.fc6, nautilus-sendto-0.7-5.fc6,
