The Thinkpad is visible from the phone, but I can't transfer from the phone to the laptop. I also tried with an iMac, and couldn't transfer to or from the iMac either, but again, they can see each other, and pair successfully. Pairing the devices work, and data is transferred, but Obex FTP doesn't go. What is frustrating, is the lack of documentation, or helpful error messages or the fact that linux subsystems keep changing, which mean config files change, etc.
I get this error in my system log.
Jan 20 10:18:52 Oberon dbus-daemon: dbus: [system] Rejected send message, 2 matched rules; type="method_return", sender=":1.27" (uid=0 pid=5398 comm="/usr/sbin/bluetoothd -n ") interface="(unset)" member="(unset)" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination=":1.13" (uid=500 pid=4860 comm="/usr/libexec/obex-client ")
So I assume dbus, or whatever it is, is rejecting the transfer. How do I allow it?
