It seems to only detect certain types of files. I have a word document in /hdd3/Documents/OBEX_Outbox
and a text document in /hdd3/Documents/OBEX_Inbox
These don't show up, I'll try a picture file next.
Is this good for pictures only?
I tried it again after I placed a *.jpg file in OBEX_Outbox, and It found  the file.
I want to be able to transfer all filetypes, not just pictures.
I tried sending it, and the OBEX push GUI said it was sent, but it never got to my windows desktop.
I was hoping after spending $134.00 on a new Socket bluetooth card, that I could have better capability with file transfer.
I think bluetooth should have a filemanager that allows you to view both your connected device, (in this case a desktop PC and it's entire filesystem), and the entire filesystem on the Zaurus.

Any news about the bluetooth GUI ??? is it possible download ???
[div align=\"right\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

here's the stripped version for cacko. it only contains the scripts and supporting icons. you will need to install qshdlg [a href=\"http://zaurus.daemons.gr/menaie/build/qshdlg_0.6.2-1_arm.ipk]http://zaurus.daemons.gr/menaie/build/qshdlg_0.6.2-1_arm.ipk[/url] too.

I try your GUI on my C3100 running cacko 1.23
All works well except the sending files with obex push...
the gui say " file sending success" but no file is received...
if i use the command line all works well, so i think there is some problem in the GUI......
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=117441\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

Same here, there is a message "File sent!" on the GUI but actually no file is sent...

I just sent a vcard via obextool push (my phone doesn't support ftp) to my phone

Code: [Select]
obextool -i hci0 push addressbook.vcf
I got the bt address and channel from sdptool browse.  This shows the target's (phone) bluetooth infromation.  hci0 is the interface of the zaurus's (at least for me) bluetooth card.
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=117464\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]


Does anyone have a copy of source code of command-line obextool? I seem to have  trouble trying to locate it...

I have Cacko installed, I think obextool is embedded in the cramfs of Cacko.
I extracted this from Meanie's "bluetooth-support_1.23-1_arm.zip"
it is located in /opt/QtPalmtop/bin
I had to zip it up to post it here.

Actually, I was looking for source code of obextool. It used to be on unrooted.net, but no longer. I found a copy at:

hi!

any news about sending files via bluetooth?

Meanie's scrip doesn't let me send files ("file sent!" but no-go), and a nice filemanager as Jon_J says would be nice.

thanks.

you could prolly add to fileexplorer plus send to if you know what device address and channel you are sending to.

Here is what I'm doing and it works wonderfully.  You can send files to your phone from the TreeExplorer interface.

Install TreeExplorer Plus from the Cacko feed or download it:

http://hpcgi2.nifty.com/taku2001/zau/texpl...qt_p/top_en.cgi

To get the "Send To" function working you will need to register the software.

Assuming that your phone is already paired with your Zaurus.  Here is how to set up the "Send To" option for your phone:

1.  Launch TreeExplorer
2.  Click on Edit->Options->Send To
3.  Click on "Add Command"
4.  In the "Title:" dialog I put "T610 Phone"
5.  In the "Linux command:" dialog put "obextool -i hci0 push %1 <phone_address> <channel>"
For my phone this looked something like this:

"obextool -i hci0 push %1 00:11:22:33:44:55 7"

6.  Click OK
7.  Click OK

You should now be able to browse to a file and Hold tap->Send To->Phone and the file will send to your phone.

To determine the address of your phone open a console and:

1.  Turn on bluetooth on your phone make sure that it is "visible".
2.  Run "hcitool scan" from the command line.  The address of your phone should be display after it has finished executing.
3.  Next run "sdptool browse <phone_address>" using the address you just discovered.
4.  In the output look for "Service Name: OBEX File Transfer" stanza this should have the Channel for OBEX file transfers.  Mine looked like this:

Service Name:  OBEX File Transfer
Service Rec Handle: 0x1000f
Service Class ID List:
  "OBEX File Transfer" (0x1106)
Protocol Descriptor List:
  "L2CAP" (0x0100)
  "RFCOMM" (0x0003)
    Channel:  7
  "OBEX" (0x0008)
Profile Descriptor List:
  "OBEX File Transfer" (0x1106)
    Version:  0x0100

Hope this helps!

Any other filemanagers that have this function?
I cannot register TreeExplorer because I don't have a credit card, and they won't accept money orders sent thru regular post office mail.
Are there any actual stores that sell TreeExplorer, (like best buy, staples, circuit city, etc), where I can purchase full TreeExplorer?
Thanks, sorry for off topic
