    Hi, Chapeau 24 is great distro, everything works like a charm but one thing not. I paired my Android phone with my laptop but cannot save or recive any file by bluetooth. I can only play music from my smartphone in my laptop.
    Anyon can help me with that ?

    Regards Przemek

    Hi Przemek,

    How did you attempt to transfer the file? Did you use the Bluetooth panel as described here.

    Yes I did the same, phone and laptop are connected but nothing happen when I try to send file from computer and have info about failed transsmission when I try to send file from mobile.

    I know this thread is old but as a new user, I had the same problem. To get bluetooth working open the terminal and do this.

    systemctl –user start obex
    sudo systemctl –global enable obex

    After that you’ll be able to send files both ways.

    I take no credit – found it on another site and it worked like a charm.

    I suggest that this come enabled with future versions of Chapeau as this is another weakness of Linux distros. Bluetooth should work out of the box without the user having to troubleshoot and fix it first.
