Bug Description

I tried to connect a Samsung Galaxy Trend GT-S7560, Android 4.0.4, kernel 3.0.8-1224927, to my laptop with gnome-bluetooth, it seems that it does not pair correctly.

It's not possible to send or receive files from the smartphone. When i try to send a file, i got this error in the send window:

GDBus.Error:org.openobex.Error.Failed: Unable to request session

With the bluetooth-sendto command:

** (bluetooth-sendto:7253): WARNING **: Couldn't register with accessibility bus: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

** (bluetooth-sendto:7253): WARNING **: Obex Agent already setup on '/org/bluez/agent/sendto'

I don't know if the problem is with gnome-bluetooth or some obex librarie/package.

If I use Blueman, the bluetooth is out-of-box, it's easy to pair and send and receive files.

I can confirm this bug. I cannot send a file via nautilus-sendto. If blueman is installed, sendto does not function at all.
