Description Dawid Lorenz 2008-04-08 11:16:29 UTC
Every time I want to send a file from my mobile to laptop, I need to run
gnome-obex-server. A new icon appears in the tray (which is basically useless,
as there are no further options underneath), next to gnome-bluetooth icon
sitting there by default.

That's odd. I don't see a point of running extra app just to receive files, and
I think that standard gnome-bluetooth icon/app should handle it out of the box,
in the same manner as it handles other sub-services (like
input/audio/echo/serial etc.).

Comment 1 Ondrej Vasik 2008-04-08 12:43:24 UTC
Removal of gnome-obex-server was done by upstream maintainer Bastien Nocera in
Rawhide - with comment "Remove gnome-obex-server, we should use gnome-user-share
now". So gnome-obex-server is replaced in rawhide/f9. Adding upstream maintainer
to CC, anyway I think that is not good idea to make any bigger changes (like
integrating gnome-obex-server somewhere) in F8, so I think this bugzilla will
get closed(wontfix/notabug/upstream...or whatever).

Comment 2 Bastien Nocera 2008-04-08 12:47:06 UTC
In Fedora 9, the Bluetooth file sharing is integrated in gnome-user-share (the
"File sharing" preferences menu item).

See
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/BluetoothFedora9#head-3dd3e61b40b82eb4ed2e8b3a6340e35ccd9de87d

And the subject line should have been: "Make gnome-obex-server as a part of
bluez-gnome". It's already part of gnome-bluetooth...

Comment 3 Dawid Lorenz 2008-04-08 12:48:30 UTC
If that issue is going to be solved in F9, then that's totally fine. It's not a
big priority, just a little annoyance leading to a feature request, actually.

Thanks for prompt reply on this. :)

Thanks, I'll wait for F9 then :)
