fun with linux: fun with KBluetooth pt2

Part 2 of the article involve another program comes with KBluetooth, Which names Send File in the menu, when you open it, it is Bluetooth OBEX Push client, Which is a bit verbose. But on the other hand, seems to work quite well. Except for certain thing I can’t test yet.

Like KBlueLock, you start the program by right click on KBluetooth icon, and select Send File

You might need to search for your phone, once you are done, you can drag a file, file manager panel to the bottom. And click send. Wait then you done!!!

The thing is, file transfer from phone is broken in kubuntu gutsy. Hopefully they fix it in Hardy.

fun with linux: fun with KBluetooth pt1

Kde comes with a framework that provide a set of software to be used with bluetooh, it is called kbluetooth. It is actually comes with kubuntu by default.

One interesting tools in it is, kbluelock. Basically it is a program that lock the screen, when bluetooth signal from a designated phone disappeared.

You can call it, by right click on the kbluetooth, which is on the system tray,
Right click on it, you should see a few program, Select KBlueLock,

It really don’t do much at first, just select the right option will prompt KBlueLock to search for your phone. I just select both. And the phone.

What really cool is, my friend didn’t really saw this type of program on windows before, which to me really cool. Someway to show off, linux

One thing is, it is dead easy to configure, another is, well, it take sometime to lock and unlock the screen. And can be a bit limiting
