Downloading images from Nokia N70 over bluetooth in GNOME

is actually very easy. I connect the bluetooth dongle to the USB port on my laptop and:


$ wajig install gnome-bluetooth
$ gnome-obex-server
conn_request: bdaddr 00:19:79:86:EB:BC
conn_complete: status 0x00

And then I just click on the image on my phone and say "send over bluetooth", it finds my computer, I say yes, and that's it. It ends up in my Downloads folder on the desktop.

Then I just upload the images to my blog, see an example how it looks like.
