Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 216386
Include ObexFTP in FC Core or Extras
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:04:06 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm trying to "see"/syncronize a Motorola L6 mobile phone with my Linux box
(stock FC6), over a Belkin F8T012 Bluetooth USB adapter (Broadcom chipset).
Using hcitool, I can "see" the phone, connect, authenticate and browse its features.
However, it seems there is neither obexftp included in distro (to exchange
ictures and sound with the PC), nor a graphical frontend like Openobex-Tk to
automate connection, browse phones's features, etc.
xgnokii seems to work only with Nokia Phones.
gnome-phone-manager doesn't "see" the Belkin Bluetooth adapter in its graphical
No PIM or other application I could identify seems to be able to exchange
contacts (numbers, adreses, e-mail-addreses, etc.) with the Motorola phone.
I consider this a serious bug/missing feature, given the big number of mobile
devices on the market today.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I can't establish an useable Bluetooth connection with the Motorola phone.
FC6 should provide all necessary pieces to establish such a connection and to
syncronize with mobile phones, given a supported Bluetooth adapter.
FC6 should provide all necessary pieces to participate in a PicoNet.
If you file a package review bug for Extras, this would be included. However
I'm not going to do that work for you.
I will do that work with great pleasure, but can someone please point me to the
exact procedure about meeting the formal requirements for inclusion in Extras ?
Unfortunately, I'm neither a programmer nor an experienced contributor nor the
author of ObexFTP ;-)
