I am able to setup a link with another laptop (Win 7) and even able to send files (surprisingly around 3-4 MBps). But I am not able to locate where exactly the files are getting stored in my Ubuntu 12.04. Is there anyway where I can setup the default folders for it.

They are in /home/username/Public (in Ubuntu 13.04).

  • for me it is in /home/username/Public ( in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS ) – Arpan Das Feb 27 '14 at 13:06
  • for me it is in /home/username/Téléchargements ( in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS FR) – useful Jul 21 '14 at 19:13
  • In Ubuntu 16.04, at least in my lapto, it's in ~/.cache/obexd – Tulains Córdova Sep 5 at 20:45

Ubuntu 14.04:

If you configure Bluetooth file transfer using the "Personal file sharing" settings (gnome-file-share-properties), your files will be located at your Downloads folder.

    after that, it said the file was received, but I couldnt find it anywhere. After a find, it was placed at "~/.cache/obexd" at 16.04, whatamess.. – Aquarius Power Jun 7 '17 at 3:34
  • For me it is in ~/.cache/obexd as well, even after making the modifications suggested in this thread. How the hell are we expected to know to look there lol. – Julian Cienfuegos Oct 1 '17 at 2:01

Yes search for "Personal File Sharing Preferences" in Applications from the Dash.

You'll get a menu of options and you can change Downloads as the primary folder to which files are bluetoothed to.

Normally files are saved in your /Home Folder check it out.

For me it was in /home/Public but if you already installed "Blueman applet" on you system, you can easily change the folder using its "Local Services" option

Any version of ubuntu just select File System in explorer and search public folder see your transferred files there then select make link and shift to desktop
