[Bug 872044] Re: Bluetooth 'Send files' returns permission denied error

I can send files from device to PC if gnome-user-share is installed and
configured correctly as described in this bug report.

Basically i can confirm  disabling SSP enables me to send files to
device and i will say it does not prevent browsing the device. Why in
Nautilus when i click on device i don't get the content of the device to
browse it is probably different bug not related to this one.

If SSP is not disabled then both don't work.

Maybe i would just make two proposals:

1.) It's a bit problematic gnome-user-share has to be installed and to
be set up to enable sending files from device to PC. Could this be
improved and integrated in bluetooth control panel?

2.) When user clicks Browse files on device Nautilus could be opened?

I am glad i will be able to use my phone and exchange files with it in
Precise Pangolin! Thanks.
