this bluetooth bug in fedora 15 GNOME 3 troubles in bluetooth file tranfer.
u can't actually turn the visibility ON and hence none of the devices can see your system to transfer a file via bluetooth.
you just have to run these commands to sort out the problem....
Code:
systemctl status bluetooth.service
sudo systemctl enable bluetooth.service
sudo systemctl start bluetooth.service

Going to take an nte931 (7805?) if I can find one to use is as part of a dc-dc ps for my Chumby. Then the Chumby will be truly portable.

GNOME 3 (Fedora 15) -- background and other tweaks
