I got my Samsumg Galaxy S3 paired and connected over Bluetooth to my laptop running Ubuntu 12.04 Both the mobile and the laptop states that the bluetooth connection is up and running
I can query the mobile from the laptop with hcitool, for instance:
$ sudo hcitool con Connections: > ACL [the_phone_mac_addr] handle 11 state 1 lm MASTER AUTH ENCRYPT
I can transfer files from the laptop to the phone using the ubuntu bluetooth menu, but if I try to transfer a file from the mobile to the laptop I alway got a "connection failed" error
My idea is that the problem might be with the bluetooth profiles the laptop exposes; from the mobile I can see the paired device details, and the list of profiles are:
- Call Audio
- Media Audio
Is there a way to add or enable profiles to the laptop?
Can anyone confirm my hypothesis?
Any other suggestion?
