Bluetooth on Fedora
I recently bought a new cell phone, the Nokia 6822.
I tried to connect my cell phone with my laptop. I first succeeded sending files from my laptop to my phone with bluetooth, sending files from my phone to the laptop also worked without any problems.
When I tried to browse my phone with my laptop, it didn’t work. It makes connection, my phone asks permission and the pairing code but then the connection is closed.
Google brought me to this bugreport of redhat: Bug 160676 – dbus_pin_helper crashes hcid. In that bugreport is a little workaround, commenting out dbus_pin_helper.
I tried it.. and it worked. The pin_helper section of my /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf is now:
# PIN helper pin_helper /usr/lib/kdebluetooth/kbluepin; # D-Bus PIN helper #dbus_pin_helper;
I can now browse my phone from my laptop, also using gnokii now works
