Mate-BT does not work - blueman?


Hi!
With Mate-Bluetooth (Mint 13, 14, 15) I only can connect to a BT mouse. After having installed blueman, I can connect to, but not browse on a smartphone - Error message:
Quote:
failed to launch thunar [error 2]. No such file or directory.
You can enter an alternative browser in service settings
BT Icon > local services > Transfer / advanced:
Quote:
thunar obex://[%d]
command to start obex ftp browser
"%d is substituted with device address"

I suppose I have to replace thunar... with something containing caja.
Any idea?

What version of MATE are you using 1.0, 1.2, 1.4, 1.6? MATE 1.4 is still available from MATE so I assume it is still supported, MATE 1.6 is the current release. If you want help you are going to have to give much more information that what you have.

Are you running 2 Desktop Environments? If yes why? My advice would be choose one or the other. If no why is it looking for Thunar?

Do you need Thunar? If no uninstall it and reinstall caja and mate-bluetooth and see what happens then.

Hi!
I'm testing several Mint versions with MATE [ live DVD or USB ] ; I only install one of them (favoured M 13) if BT works.
I found out - if you have nautilus -:
Quote:
nautilus --browse obex://
is the right command.
At the moment I'm not on Mint DE - I'll test it later with caja instead of thunar or nautilus --browse.

Hi!
Nothing is working with MATE BT-Manager; after having installed blueman, I' ve tried all commands - no success;
I only can send a file from my smartphone to my notebook, but can't browse on it.
(BTW: With Gnome 2 I could browse via BT on phones - in several distributions.)
