View Full Version : obex server error

9th November 2006, 10:01 AM
I recently bought a Billiontron BluetoothUSB Adapter for my desktop running FC6. Using the Bluetooth Manager I was able to pick up my Phone but was unable to open the properties pane for it. Next I tried to use the Bluetooth File Sharing Applet and it failed to start. Next I typed in the command gnome-obex-server in the terminal and it returned the following output

** (gnome-obex-server:4007): WARNING **: OBEX server register error: -1

** (gnome-obex-server:4007): WARNING **: Unable to initialize OBEX source

** (gnome-obex-server:4007): WARNING **: Couldn't initialise OBEX listener

Does anyone know what this means and how to sort it out?
All help is appreciated.

I have filed a bug report about (receiving files via) bluetooth in Fedora Core 6.

Please, confirm the bug there if you have the same problem:

So I guess this bug remains unresolved
