Cannot change file sharing settings through bluetooth settings

Asked by Davide Depau on 2012-07-31

If I want to receive a file, I need to open Personal file sharing settings. I think there should be a link in the indicator or in the bluetooth settings to open this tool.

I've asked a question because I don't know where are blueprints.

Why would you need blueprints?

The bluetooth file sending device must first be paired, you can then select to always trust the device (no prompt for authorisation), or just recieve the file after you ok it. To my knowledge the system will not automatically accept files unless you tell it to

Though the device is paired, obex push service is not detected, until I enable it from that tool. To help new users to enable file receiving you can add a link in the indicator or in bluetooth settings.

I suggest you report a bug

Can you help with this problem?
