    Cool [Announce] Series60-Remote 0.2.1 (+screenshots, windows xp package)

    Hello,

    I'd like to announce Series-60-Remote 0.2.1.
    It was made for forwarding text messages from your PC to your mobile phone, but now it is also possible to save all your messages on the PC, start a conversation, browse through your contacts (even when you're not connected with the mobile, they're stored in a local database) and much more

    Changes since 0.2.0:
    • Support for Windows XP (I'm not complete sure if it works, because I could only test it under a virtual machine)
    • Import messages from previous versions
    • Bug fixes


    System requirements:
    • PC
      • OS: GNU/LINUX or Windows XP
      • Python (included in the Windows package)
      • PyQt4 (included in the Windows package)
      • pybluez (included in the Windows package)
    • Mobile
      • PyS60


    Features:


    Current status:
    My English isn't really good so there are a quite a few translations errors.
    So please write a mail to the mailing list or reply to this thread if you know better vocabulary.
    Otherwise there won't be ever a stable version 1.0.

    Plans for the future:
    I'm currently working on support for adding and editing contacts.
    A disadvantage is the lack of support for Windows Vista and Mac OS X. However there isn't much I can do currently, because I don't find any Python bluetooth bindings for these operating systems. I read anywhere that Qt 4.6 (will be released in late 2009) should add support for bluetooth connections, so Windows Vista support will be added not later than Qt 4.6 is released.

    You can download it here (Version 0.2.2)

    Enjoy,
    LuHe

    Hello,

    Today I managed to get bluetooth in my virtual Windows XP machine (it took my hours to find appropriate drivers )

    But... I fixes some bugs and released version 0.2.2
    It should work straightaway on Windows XP (at least it did so for a me and a friend)

    So please test it and tell me if it works for you too.

    DOWNLOAD!

    Re: [Announce] Series60-Remote 0.2.1 (+screenshots, windows xp package)

    Hi Lukas,

    I installed Remote but when running the wizard setting, my device is not detected.

    I tried to ignor this step (pressing "next >") and the following message is displayed:
    "The python binding for obexftp isn´t installed. You have to transfer ..."

    I just used the windows setup provided.

    Info:
    * Windows XP SP3
    * Remote version 0.2.2
    * I am using a USB dongle (ISSC USB Bluetooth Device)

    Thanks!

    Hm, this sounds really odd, can you see any other device?

    this is normal for windows. You have to download the sis file from sourceforge (series60-remote-0.2.2.sis), install it on the phone and run it.

    No, no devices available.

    And I am didn't install anything further. In fact, I have already python 2.5.x installed and some modules (bluez was not installed).

    Hello,
    sorry for the late reply.
    This shouldn't make any difference because the application should use python and the modules provided with the package.
    Could you please try this version? http://rapidshare.com/files/19439960....2.2-debug.exe
    Do you see any interesting things in the debug window? (Tracebacks, the report from bluez about the scan,..)

    Thanks for your report,
    Lukas

    OpenObex was not found seems suspected ...

    Take a loot:


    I will try to install openobex in the meanwhile.

    Thanks !

    openobex isn't available for Windows, but this shouldn't be a problem.
    This is the reason why you have to send the sis file manually to your phone

    The only strange thing is: "Found 0 devices"
    It seems like pybluez doesn't report any devices.. I really don't know what to do with this, because it works for me

    Do you have python and pybluez installed? Could you test this small python script?

    import bluetooth
    bluetooth.discover_devices(lookup_names=True)

    It should report a dict with all found devices.

    Course I can !
    I downloaded and installed: http://pybluez.googlecode.com/files/...in32-py2.5.exe

    Your scripted reported several devices near me (I hid some parts of MAC):

    Code:
    >>> import bluetooth
    >>> bluetooth.discover_devices(lookup_names=True)
    [('00:21:FE:xx:xx:xx', 'Trojan.exe'), ('00:21:FE:xx:xx:xx', 'Trojan.exe'), ('00:21:FE:xx:xx:xx', 'Trojan.exe'), ('00:21:FE:xx:xx:xx', 'Trojan.exe'), ('00:11:F6:yy:yy:yy', 'MUZYZYZY'), ('00:11:F6:yy:yy:yy', 'MUZYZYZY')]
    Trojan.exe is my mobile, reported several times
    MUZYZYZY is a "neighbour".

    More tests:

    Code:
    services = bluetooth.find_service(address='00:21:FE:xx:xx:xx')
    >>> for s in services: print s["name"], s["description"]

    This is really strange...
    I have only one more request: Could you test the tar file of this application? In case you cannot extract it I've also uploaded a zip archive.

    Does this one find any devices? (You have to start it with python.exe series60-remote.py)

    Thanks,
    Lukas

    Hi Lukas !

    From sources, it was possible to run it!

    I liked *a lot* the view history screen ! Really nice !
    How about a "search in messages" feature ?

    Comments: I saw some freezings for almost one minute, I had a crash, device list continues to present repeated devices and it seems impossible to select one phone number for a contact with several ones. I saw some tracebacks in python console as well.





    But, I think the app is really nice and it is becoming very useful. Could you give me some hints about the protocol used between remote_pc x remote_handy ?

    Will be added in the next version

    When exactly did it freeze and crash?

    fixed in SVN revision 233

    A dialog should appear where you can select a number

    The protocol was written by me. Here is a link to the status numbers.

    Thanks for your detailed test report.

    I will try to repeat and report. Is there any test that I can do for helping to solve the issue with installer (install but nor detect devices) ?

    All my reports were already fixed :-D
    I will take a look in the code. I am thinking about porting your program to N800... Just thinking, while my N800 does not arrive (I hope to have one this week). That is the reason for the question about protocol used.
    What do you think ?
