I recently got my bluetooth between computer and phone to work well together, but now I need to browse files on my device... I found some older instructions here on askubuntu, that seem a little outdated. So I want to ask if instructions for fedora that I found googling, might be applicable for ubuntu 14.04 as well since the instructions are a bit more recent...
Is this combination of package installs sufficient to browse files on my device?
gvfs-obexftp nautilus bluez-gnome
I tried these instructions:
Create a folder in `/media/mountpoint with root rights Install obexfs pair the phone with the PC Get the device MAC and mount it with obexfs: sudo mkdir /media/mountpoint sudo apt-get install obexfs hcitool scan Scanning ... 8F:77:17:77:44:16 My Android Phone obexfs -b 8F:77:17:77:44:16 /mountpoint
To unmount the device:
fusermount -u /mountpoint
while I was able to mount the device, I couldn't actually and open the folder and browse files. The computer stated that I need root user permissions...
