Comment 35 for bug 872044

I am affected by the same bug (fresh install of Ubuntu 11.10 with Unity). Actually I cannot do any file transfer with my phone : sending files from the phone, from the PC, browsing files, nothing works (permission denied everywhere). Also, the bluetooth-applet crashes. Only the initial pairing with the phone went fine. Typical errors in syslog are :

Comment #14 suggested to look into the "Personal file sharing" settings but I cannot find them in Unity's system settings (though the package gnome-user-share is installed).
