Bluetooth won’t receive files, but sends them ok



Just noticed that after the latest update bluetooth has become strange. I can easily send files from the computer to the Tablet via bluetooth, but when I try to send a file from the Tablet to the computer, the sign of bluetooth in the system tray becomes green for a second or two, then it becomes white again, and nothing more happens: no file transfer, no notification. The output of systemctl status bluetooth -l as root is the following:

[code]# systemctl status bluetooth -l

Why doesn’t it receive files?

Cannot receive files over bluetooth

[~] cat /var/log/pacman.log | grep down [2016-10-07 11:27] [ALPM] downgraded bluez (5.42-1 -> 5.41-2) [2016-10-07 11:34] [ALPM] downgraded bluez-qt (5.26.0-1 -> 5.25.0-2) [2016-10-07 11:34] [ALPM] downgraded bluedevil (1:5.7.5-1 -> 1:5.7.4-1) [~]

It now works fine.

Just did a system update (10/09) and bluetooth is now broken

Thank you very much. That is the solution.


I’ve also done:

[code][~] cat /etc/pacman.conf | grep -i ignorepkg

Pacman won’t upgrade packages listed in IgnorePkg and members of IgnoreGroup

IgnorePkg = bluez,bluez-qt,bluedevil,bluez-libs

What is not broken, should not be repaired.
