I published a Bazaar branch of the Nautilus obex method here:
This version works with the hcid daemon included with Ubuntu Edgy, rather than requiring the btcond daemon from Maemo.
Some simple instructions on building it:
- Download and build the osso-gwobex library:
svn checkout https://stage.maemo.org/svn/maemo/projects/connectivity/osso-gwobex/trunk osso-gwobex
The debian/ directory should work fine to build a package using debuild.
- Download and build the obex module:
bzr branch http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~jamesh/+junk/gnome-vfs-obexftp
There is no debian packaging for this — just an autogen.sh script.
It should work on other distributions, but I haven’t tried it. The main requirement is bluez-utils 3.7, and that -x is passed to hcid to enable the org.bluez.RFCOMM interface.
Still to do is cleaning up the obex:/// listing of bonded devices, so that it serves desktop entries rather than symlinks, so that it is usable in Nautilus. This would also make it easier to show the device names to the user and get nice icons.
