Description hamelg 2014-12-27 21:37:21 UTC
I have a Nokia N70.
When browsing my phone with obexftp:// in dolphin, I don't see the tree files, I see only an empty directory. When I put files in the empty directory,  I receive them on my phone in my messages box with a "bluetooth" sender.
After digging the code and doing some tests with obexctl, I found out bluez uses the "ftp" service to talk to my phone. If I force bluez to use the obex driver "pcsuite" , all is ok, I can browse all directories.
I have applied the same thing to bluedevil by modifying the file  kio/obexftp/daemon/createsessionjob.cpp :
--- createsessionjob.cpp.ori    2014-12-22 12:20:09.000000000 +0100

     QVariantMap args;
-    args["Target"] = "ftp";
+    args["Target"] = "pcsuite";
     m_client = new OrgBluezObexClient1Interface("org.bluez.obex",
                                                 QDBusConnection::sessionBus(), this);

It would be nice to have an option to setup the target. I don't know if bluez can select the right driver automatically ...

Reproducible: Always

If you look the code of obexftp (http://dev.zuckschwerdt.org/openobex/wiki/ObexFtp), it tries first to use the PCSUITE service, and if it fails, it reverts to the FTP service.

see changelog ObexFTP 0.22 :
        * prefer PCSUITE over FTP, req. by Martin Storsjö for Series 60 2nd Ed.
