Description:

#########################
# THIS IS A DEVELOPER RELEASE !!! #
#########################

KMobileTools is a nice KDE-based application that allows to synchronize and manage mobile phones with your PC. It handles full SMS control, dialing calls, phonebook, and phone status monitoring.

As KDE moved from version 3 to version 4, KMobileTools had started to be ported to Qt4 along with major API changes. A new engine has been written and the GUI redesigned. However, the former developers had to drop the project due to a lack of time and I recently decided to take it over. So, this developer release is also a CALL FOR DEVELOPERS: I won't be able to ensure the complete work, I need support and want to form a new team for development. Coding on KMobileTools is real fun, but I am very busy with my master degree and my coding experience is still not that rich, making KMobileTools evolve (too) slowly.

#################
# PROJECT CESSION !!! #
#################
The project has migrated from the KDE Playground SVN to Gitorious: http://gitorious.org/kmobiletools
I currently have no time anymore to continue hacking on KMobileTools. Feel free to clone the git repo and to submit merge requests for every contribution of yours. Git is now the best mean to share the code and to make contributions easier through the clone/merge system it provides. I remain available for project administration and any insight I could give about the project. From now on, the project is in the hands of the contributors!

Feel free to contact me if you are interested in hacking on KMobileTools. As you can see, most of the work is done, let's finally finish it! The following list is how I would set the priorities: https://gitorious.org/kmobiletools/pages/Home

Despite the fact that the ChangLog says it now compile again for KDE 3.2, it seems that it's not true.
The configure script search for makekdewidgets which is a script that appeared in KDE 3.3.0 if I'm correct.
Is there a specific option to configure script to circumvent this problem?


The error:
checking for makekdewidgets... not found
configure: error: The important program makekdewidgets was not found!
Please check whether you installed KDE correctly.

My Distribution: Mandrake 10.1 / KDE 3.2.3 / gcc 3.4

Anyway, this app look realy cool despite the fact I'm stuck to V 0.3.1

BTW: Is there a backup phonebook / restore to another phone feature in 0.4.1?

Ok, i got it.
Just try this:
http://rockman.homelinux.org/kmobiletools-0.4.3-try2.tar.bz2
i tested it on slackware, downgrading KDE to 3.2.
Note: QT 3.2 seems _NOT_ supported.

your tool is a great start in the right direction ...

i'm searching for long for a solution to sync the addressbook from kmail/kontact with my t610 but didn't find anything easy for it (i mean real sync: change a detail on PC or phone and then sync them correctly, so that the information is on both devices in the end)

looking forward for your next releases ... keep the great work up

good work, i'm desperately looking for an app that would allow me to sync my ericsson t610.
I could browse my phone tel. book but couldn't do anything without it - maybe in next version :)

t610 should be supported. Just check you've the right SMS/Phonebook slots in the config dialog

yes i can browse my phonebook but there sould be a support for exporting to kpim or something -
also reading email from telphone address book would be a nice thing,

AFAIK theres no such app that would import data from t610 to kmail kcontact or anything like that- calendar synchronization would be great also :) but thats for the future maybe-


keep up the great work

For exporting addressbook, you can add ~/.kde/share/apps/kmobiletools/kmobiletools.vcf to your kdepim addressbook (as a file resource).
For mail and other stuff.. well, here you should really wait :)

I've been trying to get my SonyEricsson Z1010 work with my computer. And now I at least can dial and answer phonecalls with it. I would love to know how i can syncronize my computers addressbook with the one in the phone. If you have any clue on how to sync the scheduled items between phone/computer I would smile for a long time... =)

Replying with RTF is far from being user attractive when there is actualy nothing about bluetooth except "Any phone having modem functions and a serial converter" (which is not obvious for everybody).

More over, I think that the bluetooth stuff must definitely be handled by your program (at least V1.0) using kbluetoothd. Indeed, without this feature, the user as to type wired commands in a root shell which greatly reduce the user friendlyness of your tool.

Regarding bluettoth connection, here is how to proceed:
For the 1st time:
- make your phone bluetooth visible
- as any user type in a shell:
hcitool scan
- identify your phone
- as root, edit /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf
and in the rfcomm0 section, change device address (discovered by the hcitool scan) and give a name to your device in the comment field (example: my_phone).
=> That's all for the config

Then at any time you want to connect your phone:
- make your phone bluetooth visible
- as root in a shell type the command:
rfcomm connect my_phone

and then, to use kmobiletools, use the /dev/bluetooth/rfcomm/0 device

BTW it works perfectly with my Motorola V600 and CKPD dial system.

Anyway, this app is definitely great :-) and looks realy promising.

Best regards.

How can I make the /dev/bluetooth/rfcomm - device with kbluetooth? It doesn't work with rfcomm connect ... :
syntax error line 7
syntax error line 12
syntax error line 17
Can't connect RFCOMM socket: Device or resource busy
In my /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf stands:
btwotch:

rfcomm0 {
bind yes;
# Bluetooth address of the device
device 00:60:57:4A:2F;
# RFCOMM channel for the connection
channel 2;
# Description of the connection
comment "btwotch";

So I ask: How can I make that with kbluetoothd????????

your device line seems wrong: the address of the device has 6 numbers not 5.

Also check that bluetooth service is started (and corectly setup. It's good to setup a computer name instead of bluez(%d %h))

if you start kbluetootd, you should see a message stating that a bluetooth controler has been found.

My config file looks like this:

rfcomm0 {
# Automatically bind the device at startup
bind no;

# Bluetooth address of the device
device 00:0a:28:da:e3:fe;

# RFCOMM channel for the connection
channel 1;

# Description of the connection
comment "V600";
}
