I'm not sure, if I am just stupid, or discovered a bug. I wanted to send a file to my phone, using bluetooth.

I did the pairing, and then wanted to send a file: Bluetooth settings

Then comes the file selection dialog, where I selected the file:enter image description here

But from there, I did not know, what to do. There is no send file button, hitting enter does nothing, and the window does not even have a close button. To close it, I had to use the dock. But it did not send the file :(

Am I missing something, or is this a bug?

  • You better try Superbeam. You can check here for more about it. You can transfer files faster than bluetooth. kvcodes.com/2016/09/…

  • Yes, it is a bug. I have suffered it when I try playing music, even though the bluetooh in panel looks connected. I have to repeat the process two times at least. In the end it works. My english is bad, sorry. Dec 5, 2016 at 22:54
