I’m been trying to send photo from my phone to my laptop using the built-in bluetooth software that comes with Ubuntu 9.10 but it does not support receiving files, what a frustration. So i do a little google and found a tool that make wonders with just minor setting, the software call Blueman Bluetooth Manager.

Blueman is a GTK+ Bluetooth Manager.Blueman is designed to provide simple, yet effective means for controlling BlueZ API and simplifying bluetooth tasks such as:

  • Connecting to 3G/EDGE/GPRS via dial-up
  • Connecting to/Creating bluetooth networks
  • Connecting to input devices
  • Connecting to audio devices
  • Sending/Receiving/Browsing files via OBEX
  • Pairing

Blueman also integrates with Network Manager 0.7, so any Dialup/Network connections will be made available (via HAL) to Network Manager.

The installation is just way to simple and type the following and viola, you’re done.

sudo apt-get install blueman

I’ve not yet try using it to connect to internet via my 3G but will try it soon.
