The problem in Fedora 16 Gnome was not showing the bluetooth devices and in fact it didn’t detect any. However, lsusb found them with no problems.
You can correct these bugs very easly
#systemctl status bluetooth.service bluetooth.service - Bluetooth Manager Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service) Active: inactive (dead) CGroup: name=systemd:/system/bluetooth.service
Use these commands for fixing this
#systemctl enable bluetooth.service ln -s '/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service' '/etc/systemd/system/dbus-org.bluez.service' ln -s '/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service' '/etc/systemd/system/bluetooth.target.wants/bluetooth.service'
#systemctl start bluetooth.service
After running those three commands, gnome now shows all devices. Also turn on or off the visibility etc… By using the phone manager in gnome you can browse the files in the bluetooth device.
