you need to use the obex server, in the gnome env this is the
gnome-obex-server. It will allow you to receive files from another
bluetooth device. Sending files is done using the gnome-obex-send
command. This is fully integrated in gnome, rightclick a file and there
is a "send via bluetooth" option.
