On my Dell Studio 1550 laptop: I have Xubuntu installed. I succesfully paired the device. Now when I click on "Browse files on device" I get this message:

Failed to launch ""
[Errno 2] No such file or directory
You can enter an alternate browser in service settings

On my friends laptop (latest Ubuntu installed and up to date), when you click "Browse files on device" actually nothing happens...

Please help!

The file manager seems to want to launch a file called "", which isn't provided by any package in Ubuntu.

The closest reference to a file like this is from this wiki page:

You can probably just make a script called that like that wiki page and see if it works.

I just don't get this! I created file put it into /usr/bin and chmod +x. It's all the same except the error message is a little different...... [Errno 8] Exec format error ... you can enter an alternate browser in service settings ..... I HATE THIS! – user568021 May 18 '12 at 9:06
