Title: Better Bluetooth in Linux Lite 4.x 18.04 Bionic
Post by: Jerry on September 17, 2019, 03:14:39 PM
If like me, you are experiencing flaky connections, bad file transfers, the following solution made everything work perfect!

Only use this if bad things are happening, most people should be fine, if it ain't broke...

Source - https://medium.com/@overcode/fixing-bluetooth-in-ubuntu-pop-os-18-04-d4b8dbf7ddd6

Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bluetooth/bluez
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Viola!

Now, if you are also not seeing where files are coming into in Linux Lite, they were going into, /home/jerry/.cache/obexd rather than /home/jerry/Downloads.

Fix:

Code: [Select]
sudo leafpad /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.bluez.obex.service
replace:

Code: [Select]
Exec=/usr/lib/bluetooth/obexd
with:

Code: [Select]
Exec=/usr/lib/bluetooth/obexd -r /home/yourusernamehere/Downloads
in my case:

Code: [Select]
Exec=/usr/lib/bluetooth/obexd -r /home/jerry/Downloads
Reboot, enjoy :)
