My Laptop's main OS is Ubuntu 11.04 (obviously this blog is all about Ubuntu, and some Samsung Galaxy Mini) and the bluetooth dongle is something I won over my friend.
Well, lets begin. If you already have bluetooth connection from Ubuntu to your Android Phone, than skip step 1 and continue to step 2 or step 3, depends on your need.
1. CREATING BLUETOOTH CONNECTION
BETWEEN LAPTOP (UBUNTU) AND SAMSUNG GALAXY MINI (ANDROID PHONE)
2. Prepare your Samsung Galaxy Mini bluetooth connection by touching the App List, swipe your way so that you'll find Settings, touch it. Touch the Wireless and networks and touch Bluetooth settings. Tap on the blank Bluetooth check mark on to turn bluetooth on and tap on the blank Visible check mark to let your Laptop see your phone (this will stay on for about 120 seconds so do the step 3 real fast OK)
3. Make the Bluetooth connection by clicking on the Bluetooth Icon and select Set up new device. It's a wizard, so please do follow it fast (if you do it fast, you got 100 second window time at most).
2. COPYING FILES FROM LAPTOP (UBUNTU) TO SAMSUNG GALAXY MINI (ANDROID PHONE)
3. Copy the files you need to be on the phone (e.g. musics or video clips) by dragging it to the file manager that points to your phone. NOTE : You Can Not Copy Or Drag A Folder To Your Phone (It might be some security system implanted on Android Phones because theres no trouble doing that on Nokia Phones and Nokia Phones usually prone to be hack by other people).
3. COPYING FILES FROM SAMSUNG GALAXY MINI (ANDROID PHONE) TO LAPTOP (UBUNTU)
1. Turn your Android Phone's Bluetooth on, open your phone's File Manager My Files, browse to your file that you need to transfer.
Copying Files from Android Phone to Ubuntu Laptop requires you to make the files you need to copy to be visible under Bluetooth connection seems like a Security Prevention System that Android Phone use to limit the visibility of their device hence more to do for hacker to hack in to Android Phones.
There, this way I don't need to bring micro USB cable all the time. BTW, Bluetooth Dongle is always auto detect in all Ubuntu system, while Windoze only do the same in Windoze 7. NOTE : Transferring Files Via Bluetooth Takes Longer Time Than Using Cables, So This Is Only Good For Files Under 100MB, More Will Be Very SLOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWW
