Try blueberry then and see if it is better

punyabrat kumar (punyabrat) said : #5

There is not blueberry to be found in software or synaptic package manager,,,thanks

Jeremy (wa113y3s) said : #6

Try installing gnome-user-share and in terminal

gnome-user-share-properties

See if a window appears that allows you to enable

Jeremy (wa113y3s) said : #7

That should be
gnome-file-share-propertiez

punyabrat kumar (punyabrat) said : #8

The problem of file sharing is solved by installing blueman (Bluetooth Manager)

one problem with blueman was that it started automatically in startup

but is solved now,i remove the permission of starting on start up with stat up application..
