I have been having lots of Bluetooth issues with my RPi. However, I'd like to keep this troubleshooting narrative focused on today's experiment: sending a file from my RPi 3 to an Asus Windows 10 laptop.
Here is my setup:
RPi OS: Raspian/Linux 8 Jessie
Running: Bluez 5.23 and Blueman 1.99~alpha1-1+deb8u1 (results from a grep search)
Asus Laptop: Windows 10, using a CSR 4.0 bluetooth dongle, as the computer doesn't have bluetooth built into it. I have successfully sent a file to this computer from a Mac desktop that has bluetooth.
If I click on the Blueman icon at the bottom of the RPi GUI and click "devices" I see my laptop with a magnifying glass/search glass icon over it. Also, in the bluetooth menu of my laptop's settings, I see my RPi's name, and it says "connected." However, for other devices, like my Mac desktop, my laptop's bluetooth devices list says "paired."
Back to my RPi. If I go to Blueman's menu, and click "Send Files to Device" and then choose a text file to send to my laptop, I will get an error box that says:
Service not supported by remote device
I suspect this is an issue with the Asus laptop, but I have not been able to solve this. Also, since the laptop says it is connected and not "paired" to the RPi, I suspect that there could be an issue also.
Can anyone make a suggestion about how to send this file via Bluetooth to my laptop?
