It's a bit strange to ask, but the situation is: I can easily send from my laptop with elementary OS files via Bluetooth, but I do not understand how to accept a file. The system notifies me that a device is trying to send me a file. I remember with ubuntu with GNOME it suffices to click "accept" to the notification itself, but on eOS any choiche does not appear and clicking on it leads to nothing. So: what to do?
I have managed to fix this in elementaryOS 5 (Juno). You might be able to do this on lower versions as well:
- Pair the device with your computer using the default Bluetooth settings in the control panel (I assume that you have already done this).
- Install blueman:
sudo apt-get install blueman
- Open blueman services:
- A window should open, here you can select "Transfers" -> "Accept incoming files from trusted devices".
When you tick that box, it will work. I am not sure if you can remove blueman afterwards.
