I used to send files to my phone using the send-to context menu in nautilus file manager in fedora 16:

  1. select file(s) in nautilus
  2. right click
  3. send to ...
  4. choose "bluetooth" target, cnfig the transfer and confirm

But there is no such option in my fresh new fedora 20 installation. What should I do to enable it? In the context menu for files selected in nautilus there is just the send to email option.

I have the nautilus-sendto and gnome-bluetooth packages installed. And I am able to send the files from the settings page for bluetooth without any troubles.

From the NEWS file,

Version 3.7.92

- Remove all plugins, we will only handle sending
  through e-mail clients for the foreseeable future
  nautilus-sendto 3.6.x is still available for integrators
  for which this is a problem.

An alternative is to open Bluetooth Transfer (binary: bluetooth-sendto) and then either use its file picker, or drag and drop the file you want form your Nautilus window.

Anywhere one can find out details as to why this was removed ?.

I'll leave investigating the behavior and commit history of gnome-bluetooth as an exercise for the reader :)
