I have been trying to get my Samsung Galaxy S6 to transfer pictures to my amd64 system running KDE with Bluetooh. It fails instantly. I don't understand why.

When I select a file for bluetooth transfer on my phone and select the device, it issues a "Transfer Failed." as soon as I select the gentoo system. If I uncheck the "Trusted Devices" button I get to approve the transfer before it fails.

Is there anybody with a similar configuration who is able to transfer files?

If so, are both the Bluetooth and the BlueMan applets running?

The Bluetooth Manager settings seems to want to make an audio connection by default. Is there a way to make it do a Network connection by default? When I try to set up the connection, it initializes as "audio" and then says "Failed to Connect" when it completes.

I'm using Bluedevil in KDE, which can receive/send files from/to my Samsung Galaxy Note 4:

kde-frameworks/bluez-qt-5.29.0 (-debug -test)
kde-plasma/bluedevil-5.8.5 (-debug)
net-wireless/bluez-5.43-r1 (cups obex readline udev -debug -deprecated -doc -experimental -extra-tools -selinux -systemd -test -test-programs -user-session ABI_MIPS="-n32 -n64 -o32" ABI_PPC="-32 -64" ABI_S390="-32 -64" ABI_X86="64 -32 -x32" PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7")
sys-firmware/bluez-firmware-1.2

You mentioned an audio connection, so I wonder if your problem has something to do with PulseAudio? I notice the Arch Linux Wiki article on Blueman mentions a 'PulseAudio plugin of Blueman' (see below). If you have that plugin, can you disable it to see if the audio connection still occurs?

Arch Wiki wrote:
Users who want to use PulseAudio with a Bluetooth headset, in addition to installing pulseaudio-bluetooth, may want to activate the PulseAudio plugin of Blueman. This automatically loads PulseAudio Bluetooth module after audio device is connected and plays all audio through the Bluetooth headset. For more information see Bluetooth headset

Thank you for responding. I have the very same versions of the bluetooth software that you do.

I poked around and don't see any pulseaudio USE variables, so I am stumped.

Another clue:

When I try to set up my phone with Bluetooth Manager - Bluetooth-Devices I get a funny error on the connection:

Connection Failed: The name org.freedesktop.NetworkManager was not provided by any .service files

You mentioned you use BlueMan in your first post, so I'm not sure I'm understanding you correctly: Is "Bluetooth Manager - Bluetooth-Devices" in the BlueMan GUI or in the KDE Bluedevil KCM GUI?

I don't use BlueMan myself so am not familiar with its GUI, but I found the following screenshot which shows where you select/deselect the BlueMan PulseAudio plugin:

https://rohieb.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/blueman-plugins.png

The blog post containing that screenshot talks about selecting BlueMan's 'NMPANSupport plugin for NetworkManager':

https://rohieb.wordpress.com/tag/blueman/

I wonder if that is also causing you trouble in BlueMan? If you are still using BlueMan, perhaps you could disable that plugin too to see what happens.

Just to be sure, you do have the bluetooth daemon added to the default runlevel, right?

Code:
# rc-update show -v | grep blue
Password:
            bluetooth |      default


BlueMan is a GNOME package, if I'm not mistaken, so I wonder if it causes any problems in KDE Plasma 5. Have you tried uninstalling BlueMan and then using KDE Bluedevil, to see if BlueMan was somehow interfering with the KDE Bluetooth KCM modules? These are the KCM Bluetooth modules in my installation:

Code:
$ kcmshell5 --list | grep blue
bluedeviladapters          - Bluetooth Adapters
bluedevildevices           - Bluetooth Devices
bluedevilglobal            - Advanced Bluetooth Settings

I played around with the settings.

Unchecking the box didn't help.

All of the settings you show match the ones on my system.

I put Blueman back temporarily with the pulseaudio USE variable turned off. That didn't help. It has been removed again.

When I tried to connect from the desktop, I got the following:
Connection Failed: Method "Connect" with signature "s" on interface org.bluez.Network1" doesn't exist.

I have been able to connect to an old EEE-PC running Mint and transfer files from there to my desktop.

I will keep playing.

I am able to receive a jpg file from the desktop.

The KDE SystemSetup Bluetooth screen doesn't allow you to delete a paired connection, and re-establish it, so I can't try that trick.

I found this: https://github.com/blueman-project/blueman/pull/229#issuecomment-88140697

Have you got the bluetooth and modemmanager USE flags set in net-misc/networkmanager? According to the above-mentioned post, it looks like he had to include ModemManager support in NetworkManager even though he does not use ModemManager, because the latter provided libnm-device-plugin-bluetooth.so:

gentoo-root wrote:
I compiled NetworkManager with libnm-device-plugin-bluetooth.so plugin, and all things work! libnm-device-plugin-bluetooth.so was missing on my system because it depends on ModemManager (yes, MM is not needed for PAN, but libnm-device-plugin-bluetooth.so also supports DUN so depends on MM).

It's a post from 2015 so may be out-of-date, but worth a shot to re-merge NetworkManager with those two USE flags set to see if they have an effect. It may be coincidence, but I happen to have those two USE flags set in NM in my Gentoo installation, and Bluetooth works.

I added the USE variables. Still no improvement.

I really appreciate your help.

There doesn't seem to be a way to remove the entry and build another one. Too bad.

Ok, if I understand you correctly, your current situation is as follows (correct me if I am wrong):

1. BlueMan is not installed.

2. NetWorkManager has been installed with the USE flags bluetooth and modemmanager set.

3. You are using KDE Plasma 5 and you have the following Bluetooth-related software installed, and with the USE flags as shown below):

kde-frameworks/bluez-qt-5.29.0 (-debug -test)
kde-plasma/bluedevil-5.8.5 (-debug)
net-wireless/bluez-5.43-r1 (cups obex readline udev -debug -deprecated -doc -experimental -extra-tools -selinux -systemd -test -test-programs -user-session ABI_MIPS="-n32 -n64 -o32" ABI_PPC="-32 -64" ABI_S390="-32 -64" ABI_X86="64 -32 -x32" PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7")
sys-firmware/bluez-firmware-1.2

4. You can send a file from your PC to your phone, but you cannot send a file from your phone to your PC.

5. In 'System Settings' > 'Bluetooth' > 'Devices', you can see your phone listed under 'Bluetooth Devices'.

In the 'Bluetooth Devices' pane mentioned above, a) is the phone's Address shown? b) Is the Adapter shown? c) Is 'Trusted' ticked?

In 'System Settings' > 'Bluetooth' > 'Devices', under 'Advanced Settings' do you have 'Enable Bluetooth integration' and 'Receive files from remote devices' both ticked?

Another thing: You can use the command line to do everything instead of the GUI, so you could try using bluetoothctl in a Konsole window:

Code:
$ bluetoothctl
[bluetooth]# help

The only difference I see between your setup and mine is that I have an X86 system and have the following:

[list=]ABI_X86="64 -32 -x32" [/list]

I will play with bluetoothctl later...

Did you try the commands to disconnect, untrust and remove the phone, then try to pair with it again?

Have you considered not only looking at the gentoo box for issues?

Samsung has buggy firmware in their phones. I also had an effected phone myself. Their android is also a bit "unusual" (sarcasm).

Check all options / hidden options / firmware issues / operating system upgrades for your phone please.

You should get a working phone, not a SAMSUNG one, and verify if bluetooth is really "broken" on your gentoo box, or if it's the phone fault. So you can rule out which end makes the fuss. e.g vanilla android => google nexus XY for example. Not a modded SAMSUNG / HTC / ... android

I understand. I have noted that I can send files to my Samsung GalaxyTab 4 10.1, and also an EEE-PC running Mint. It also works with Windows 10 on one parition of my desktop and on anotheri that runs Kubuntu. I can also send files to that. I can't send files to an apple tablet because they don't support file transfers to the device and fail badly.

I actually like my Galaxy S6 a lot. It is very stable, fast and takes wonderful pictures. It also looks good. Plus, it has a Linux kernel.
