Connecting your Nokia N70 phone in Linux

I tried several ways to connect my Nokia N70 phone in my Debian box. I did it using bluetooth, but I wanted to connect it via USB. So I did some googeling, but I did not find any solution. Therefore I raised that question in LKLUG (Lanka Linux User Group) and get few responses. This is what I did.

I used this link as suggested in LKLUG mailing list.

http://think2ed.blogspot.com/2008/01/connect-your-nokia-n70-with-your-ubuntu.html

First of all I installed obexftp tool,

1.) sudo apt-get install obexftp

Using obexftp you can check whether the your phone is correctly connected to the machine.

2.) sudo obexftp -u

Above command indicates that.

All the above commands and related outputs are clearly mentioned in above link

Then I installed obextool (ObexTool is a graphical frontend for ObexFTP)

Debian repositories does not contain obextool packages.

Then I visited following link,

http://www.stud.uni-karlsruhe.de/~ubq7/debian

It contains all the repository details where obextool packages exists.

Copy following repository paths in your sources.list

deb http://www.hendrik-sattler.de/debian extra main
deb-src http://www.hendrik-sattler.de/debian extra main

execute following commands,

1.) sudo apt-get update
2.) sudo apt-get install obextool

After installing obextool, run the following command.

sudo obextool --obexcmd "obexftp -u 1"

So, thats it. now it list the contents in your mobile phone (My one is Nokia N70). It lists two letters. i.e. The phone's internal memory is accessed as C: whereas E: refers to the memory card.

Now you can exchage files etc etc...... Enjoy it :-D
