I just installed Gloria on a new Acer Aspire 5535 laptop. So far all is working except suspend (and I have added to the wiki accordingly) and I am now looking to transfer files from my desktop PC. As I have quite a few videos it would need a lot of ferrying for my 16GB flash drive to complete the job, but I hear good things about Giver so I thought I would give that a try. However it doesn't seem to work for me. Both my laptop and my HP Pavilion desktop are connected to the same wireless router and I eventually managed to get them both to recognise each other in Giver. However, when I give a file in one computer to the other, nothing happens on the other screen. I don't get a notification asking if I want to accept the file, I just get... nothing.
Am I doing this right? Should Giver work as long as my computers are both connected to the same wireless network using Network Manager, and both using Giver? Or do I need to do something else to network these computers so I can give and receive? I have tried sharing folders via Nautilus but haven't got that working either.
