By default it should be in your /home/username folder. I'm surprised you didn't have to nominate a location to save these files to. Check all the folders in your home directory like Documents, Pictures etc. Or you could do another send and see if it lists the location where the file will be saved.

I tried sending the files again, still nothing comes up. I searched my folders, nothing there either. When i first activated my bluetooth on my laptop, it didn't ask where the files where to be saved.

No I think in SuSE10 there put into some obscure root directory.

Been a while since I used it but I think it could be somewhere in the var directory.

try /var/lib/bluetooth/opd then change permissions and link to a home folder when found.

if not install slocate to search for a transferred file, there in there somewhere!

slocate is a command line tool to search your hard drive, it uses a database to index your files and is arguably easier (and faster) to use than find.

The syntax is:
locate filename

Alternatively:

find / -iname filename

These are both command line utilities. To get to var either graphically or from the cli you look for the root of your filesystem ( / ) and navigate upward to var. From the command line:
cd /var

Good luck!

From the KPackage listing for slocate:
Quote:
Secure replacement of findutil's locate
version 3.1-1

This locate can index all files on your system, but only files and directories which the invoking user has access to will be displayed.
Note: If your computer is not up 24/7 you should consider installing anacron since the database is only updated once a night.
More to the point -- have you learned about the CLI (command line interface) yet?

Which DE (desktop environment, e.g. KDE, Gnome, Xfce, etc.) are you using?

If you know the name of any of the transferred files, then you should run (in the CLI):
Code:
locate <partial_name_of_file>  | less -S
(The '| less -S' is to keep your [k|c]onsole from being overwhelmed by the output.)

Post back what you don't understand.
