I'm new to Linux and in Ubuntu and i noticed that I can browse my N73 using nautilus by connecting through bluetooth.
Basically what I want is to learn how it is done because I've tried it in debian (gnome-desktop-environment, bluez-gnome) and the only thing showing is the applet. I've read a guide about connecting my phone so I tried to download bluez-utils and it did get connected but I am totally clueless as to how I can browse my phone through nautilus because it doesn't show it automatically like in Ubuntu.
Oh and one more thing I would like a minimalist system so is it possible to browse my phone using other file managers besides nautilus or konqueror because I want to use fluxbox and thunar with it, or better, just MC? I like to learn more about linux so I want a base debian system and build from there.
Thanks very much!!!
I am not 100% sure it is what Ubuntu is using, but it sounds like you will want to look into using OBEXFS, which is a FUSE filesystem that acts as a front-end for OBEX FTP commands. With OBEXFS you can browse a remote device over Bluetooth with any file manager, as if it was a local filesystem.
