Description of problem:
Cannot send files over mate-bluetooth-sendto
Devices such as smartphones can be "linked", but cannot send files over bluetooth.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable Bluetooth on your device, do visible.
2. Run mate-bluetooth-sendto and select your file want to share.
I added an screenshot about an error of display on "Transfer window".
Is gvfs-obexftp and bluez installed on your system?
$ rpm -qa |grep obex*
$ rpm -qa |grep bluez*
(In reply to Álvaro Castillo from comment #2)

I see no obexd package in your list.
Because this package provide the missing dbus sevice file from your immage.
Because this package provide the missing dbus service file from your image.
I have installed obexd, but I cannot send files yet.
Now, windows shows this output message:
"Unable to find service record"
When I try to get files over Bluetooth that's failed too.
I installed mate-user-share required by http://wiki.mate-desktop.org/docs:mate-bluetooth#receive_files but does not work.
Note: Please include mate-user-share into MATE Spin and group (YUM).
My prob is that i haven't a bluetooth device for testing.
Can you test something?
Copy this file http://raveit65.fedorapeople.org/div/61-mate-bluetooth-rfkill.rules
to /lib/udev/rules.d/ and restart the system?
This is taken from gnome-bluetooth.
Can you test this build to see if it fix your issue?
Wolfgang, these build works fine sending files from PC into smartphone, but that fail to send files from smartphone into PC.
Thanks Álvaro, we are on the right way.
I open a report at upstream for this.
Is selinux enable on your system?
Can you test if disabling selinux helps?
As a workaround for you until mate-bluetooth is fixed, can you try out if blueman or gnome-bluetooth are working in your mate-session.
For gnome-bluetooth you need to edit /etc/xdg/autostart/bluetooth-applet.desktop,
change this line
and restart the session, now you should see the gnome-bluetooth applet in systray.
i forgot, disable mate-bluetooth applet in autostart for the test case using blueman or gnome-bluetooth.

You need to enable "Receive files over Bluetooth" in mate-file-share-properties (which is part of the mate-user-share package).
thanks for your hint, but this issue is confirmed by upstream.
So what exactly is/was the issue? Is there an upstream bug report you can add as reference?
Sending files only works in on direction, destop to smartphone but not from smartphone to desktop.(In reply to Álvaro Castillo from comment #9)

I don't see any activity in that bug. What about the confirmation from upstream? Does upstream have a clue what's wrong or at least some instructions for us to debug the problem?
I'm part of upstream, and we have test it on other distros too.
Is this enough information for you?
And sorry i don't use mate-bluetooth and i don't have a device for testing.
I do have devices to test, but I don't have information what to test.
Please do not close this bug unless it is really fixed.

Try send a file from your device to you notebook/PC.
As you can see i didn't close the bug with latest update which has fixed 'sending files from PC/notebook to smartphone'.
Yeah, but MODIFIED is wrong nevertheless, as it means: "This bug has had a fix generated and tested by the component owner, and the code has been checked into CVS." This is not the case.
so anyways, is this fixed?
For f20 we're switching to bluedevil because of missing bluez5 support of mate-bluetooth.
So this issue will never be fix in f19.
