MARCOBRA - I received this in an email from you and don't understand what I need to do :

Project: gnome-nettool in Ubuntu => bluez in Ubuntu

Thanks for your help.....

Was able to enable bluetooth by using:

sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth restart

that resolved another user problem.

Was able to connect to bluetooth device and transfer a file to computer.

Closing this problem.

Thanks to all for your help.
