I confirm this with same nautilus-sendto version.

Deleted schemes from gconf, reinstalled, tried to find where it stores previous entries for bluetooth devices with no luck....

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

I have updated my bluez stuff to 4.22 relase 2.fc10



Now sending and browsing bluetooth devices work again.

nautilus-sendto functions doesnt work yet.
i have to send files via the bluetooth-applet.

v4.19 currently on repository just doesn't work at all, period.

Tried this new v4.22, it rocks. Gnome bluetooth applet setting works again, pairing works, file transfer via bluetooth applet (both send and receive) works. 

This version should push out ASAP.

Thanks for the fix!

If i try to send a file via nautilus-sendto i get the error :

Obex Push file transfer unsupported

Sending files directly via the bluetooth-applet works fine.
Comment 6 Hedayat Vatankhah 2009-01-12 07:27:14 EST
It seems that it works if the device have been previously set up using the bluetooth applet.
Comment 7 Patrick Steiner 2009-01-12 07:43:18 EST
I can confirm this!
Comment 8 Michael Cronenworth 2009-01-24 15:44:17 EST
This bug was fixed in the bluez updates. You have to setup bluetooth devices with the new wizard now otherwise OBEX transfers from nautilus will fail. Even if you previously setup your device, you need to delete it and add it with the wizard.

I wish this was *DOCUMENTED* in the update. The bluez folks hate documentation it seems.
