Problem of sending files from Android smartphones to Ubuntu 12.04 via Bluetooth

Recently I wanted to check a USB bluetooth adaptor on a Ubuntu 12.04 system. I plugged the adapter to machine and paired it with a Galaxy S3 smart-phone. Sending files from Ubuntu machine to smart-phone works fine with the default bluetooth application that comes with Ubuntu 12.04.  However when sending files from the phone to the machine, a failure message is shown in phone and Ubuntu system does not notice any incoming file from the paired device.

I searched in web and found that many people have faced this problem. I tried the solution suggested in this link []. According to that, instead of using default bluetooth application, I installed Blueman Bluetooth Manager from software center. Now, sending files from Ubuntu to Android and Android to Ubuntu works fine.
