Fedora - bluetooth-sendTo not working

asked 2016-12-26 12:56:22 -0600

I was willing to transfer a file to another laptop via bluetooth. Fedora 25 comes with everything you need, including the bluetooth-sendto command which let's you pick a file and send it.

I am able to select a file but as soon as I do it, here is what happens :

Gtk-Message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged.
Gtk-Message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged.
Acquiring proxy failed: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.bluez.obex: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.systemd1.NoSuchUnit: Unit dbus-org.bluez.obex.service not found.

I actually found a solution but kind of looked for quite some time for it. I thought posting it here would make it easier to find back.

This thread provided me with the solution.

Issuing those commands solved it for me :

systemctl --user start obex 
sudo systemctl --global enable obex

I also needed to make sure file sharing was enabled on my laptop in Settings > Sharing > File Sharing. Doing the same thing on my friend's Mac was also necessary.

I hope this helps !
