  1. Description of problem:
  2. after installing a system (at least using XFCE spin), one ends up with a working bluetooth but broken Bluetooth file transfers. There is no user-friendly message to explain what's wrong except for looking into the journal and figuring out how to fix (which is not easy).
  3.  
  4. To enable file transfers one has to:
  5. sudo dnf install bluez-obexd
  6. systemctl --user start obex
  7. sudo systemctl --global enable obex
  8.  
  9. I think that `bluez-obexd` should be installed and enabled by default after installing and enabling bluetooth. Otherwise simple bluetooth operations become frustrating for the end user.
