Can't receive files from smartphone through Bluetooth

Post by LinuxMind » Mon Jan 15, 2018 8:06 am

Hello! I'm trying to sent a photo from Android smartphone (LG Spirit) to PC with Linux Mint through Bluetooth, but it can't be sent. Pairing the devices doesn't help. I can only sent files from PC to phone.

You may need to install an app to the phone to get transfer working. Try this one.
