Transfer files to N-series phones on LINUX

There is no official support provided by NOKIA for linux, so we dont have any Nokia PC Suite for it..
To transfer files on LINUX, u need to install 2 packages...
I assume u r using ubuntu...
$sudo apt-get install obexfs obexftp
Actually obex protocol is used to communicate with phones.. So, what i am going to do is that i will mount the phone using obex file system support provided by installed package...

So, make a folder, lets say .. /mnt/nokia
Lets say i am using USB cable...
$sudo obexfs -u 1 /mnt/nokia
$sudo nautilus

This will open the file browser windows and now u can transfer the files graphically...

To unmount the phone, type in terminal...
$sudo umount /mnt/nokia....
