Should not be that hard, here is what I have in my personal wiki:
My Home directory is getting cluttered so I decided to try to change
the directory ( default was my home directory) to the Desktop.
The meager readme offered
* Save received files to the path specified in the
/apps/gnome-obex-server/savedir GConf key
I eventually noticed that I had a .gconf directory in my home directory.
Following the models therein I
Created a directory named gnome-obex-server.
In that directory I created the file %gconf.xml
The file contents look like
<entry name="savedir" mtime="1144755883" type="string">
I rebooted and did a transfer from the mac and the result was left on
Apr 15, 2006 gconf-editor
Today I took a closer look at the gnome configuration editor.
I found that simply creating a key would create the above XML file
and would allow me to set the value.
I also peered into the file /etc/gconf/schemas/gnome-obex-server and
saw that there was another key that could be created.
This key if true will pop up a notification dialog for incoming traffic.
