opkg-cl update
here an overview if the highlights of the things the paroli team has been working on in week 9 and the first part of week 10:
+
opkg-cl upgrade
  
-the msgs application is in and being shipped in every build
+
then install paroli
you can view, send, receive, answer to and forward messages
+
also it will offer you to save any unknown number to your phonebook
+
  
-the people application is in and also being shipped every day
+
opkg install paroli
you can view, edit and directly call a contact
+
  
- the call logs i.e. the i/o application is also being shipped
+
Fix the conf files that the paroli installer messes with ( I hope to fix the recipe in the next couple of days. )
you can view your call logs and directly return the call
+
also it will offer you to save any unknown number to your phonebook
+
  
- dtmf in tele

- ussd in tele
+
now if you want to disable the shr phone apps without removing them comment all of the lines out in
you can receive and send simple ussd messages. NOTE: a very ugly window

will open with the message written in very small letters, but it works.

You should now have a functional paroli on SHR setup. Once you have a working setup it might be better not to run opkg upgrades but only upgrade specific packages when needed.

this list earlier

[edit] What is Paroli

Paroli a phone application for the Openmoko phones, that can be used for ....


[edit] History

Originally it was planned to be released with Om2009 distribution but as OM2009 developement slowed down, Paroli was also compiled for SHR

Paroli is based on top of the FSO framework and enables the use of it via a core and several services.

For more information please visit Paroli website

If you are interested in helping out with paroli, contribute code or test or or or ... Let us know! Send a mail to Mirko and/or visit #paroli IRC channel!

[edit] Important links

[edit] Stuff that works

Paroli actually makes FR a simple, very working phone!!

  • ability to turn off PIN check & change pin! (The first distro that does it ?)
  • Connecting to WLAN (with WPA, WPA2, WEP)
  • suspend & resume
  • etc etc

[edit] Installation / download

[edit] Paroli on SHR unstable

If you want to try and run paroli in SHR unstable RFN. Flash the latest shr-unstable image from http://shr.bearstech.com/shr-unstable/images/om-gta02/.

The image from 08-08-09 has a minor problem with opkg. to fix it

opkg-cl update
opkg-cl upgrade

then install paroli

opkg install paroli

Fix the conf files that the paroli installer messes with ( I hope to fix the recipe in the next couple of days. )

cp /etc/old_frameworkd.conf /etc/frameworkd.conf
cp /etc/freesmartphone/oevents/old_rules.yaml /etc/freesmartphone/oevents/rules.yaml

now if you want to disable the shr phone apps without removing them comment all of the lines out in

/etc/X11/Xsession.d/89notifier and /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80ophonekitd

if you want the bind-home to ease upgrades add this line to fstab.

/media/card/bind-home   /home/root     none        bind                   0  0

You should now have a functional paroli on SHR setup. Once you have a working setup it might be better not to run opkg upgrades but only upgrade specific packages when needed.

[edit] Paroli on OM2009

To install the Om2009 distribution download the uImage and fso-paroli-image from http://downloads.openmoko.org/distro/testing/NeoFreerunner/

[edit] Only the package

In order to get the package from unstable you'll need to adjust the configuration of opkg:

echo src/gz openmoko-unstable-armv4t http://downloads.openmoko.org/repository/unstable/armv4t > /etc/opkg/om-unstable.conf

Then do an opkg-update and opkg install paroli.

This should get you the newest version.

[edit] Download

Personal tools

In a few words one could say: paroli is a new approach to application development on the Openmoko phones. Paroli is based on top of the FSO framework and enables the use of it via a core and several services.

For more information please visit Paroli website

Getting the sources

git clone http://git.paroli-project.org/paroli.git/

biggest changes:

- a launcher was introduced allowing the launching of paroli-applications from within paroli itself. - the dbus interface is optional and both modes should work.

- closing application windows from within the window-manager does not kill the process anymore

- introduction of a preliminary audio service allowing to mute calls (a test service for non-fso environments was also added).

- a reworked version of the dialer was added

- works on an error-message service have begun

- works on a service checking for changes in the fso have begun and many small fixes in the code

[paroli] weekly update week 10 of 2009

here an overview if the highlights of the things the paroli team has been working on in week 9 and the first part of week 10:

-the msgs application is in and being shipped in every build you can view, send, receive, answer to and forward messages also it will offer you to save any unknown number to your phonebook

-the people application is in and also being shipped every day you can view, edit and directly call a contact

- the call logs i.e. the i/o application is also being shipped you can view your call logs and directly return the call also it will offer you to save any unknown number to your phonebook

- dtmf in tele

- ussd in tele you can receive and send simple ussd messages. NOTE: a very ugly window will open with the message written in very small letters, but it works. We will have a look into this a bit later.

- small reworks on the lists we use

- gsm and battery icons

- muting ringtone when incoming call

- muting call (mutes microphone)

- Charlie did a complete rework of the service class so that there should not be any errors due to services not waiting for one another anymore

and lots of other small things that would make this an endless list  :)

what will we do next: we will focus on some details that had been neglected so far such as - finally getting some scrolling or paging to work in our lists - getting some secondary actions associated with our list items - look at how we can go about a settings application as discussed on this list earlier - make certain internal adjustments to classes and applications to allow more flexibility - getting an image that works out of the box again

7 days update Feb 13 ~ Feb 20

- gotten daily build unstable images which by now boot directly into paroli

http://downloads.openmoko.org/distro/unstable/NeoFreerunner/fso-paroli-image-om-gta02.jffs2

http://downloads.openmoko.org/distro/unstable/NeoFreerunner/uImage-2.6.28-oe1+gitr34240a1c06ae36180dee695aa25bbae869b2aa26-r3-om-gta02.bin

They do come with bugs and issues sometimes critical like today when paroli hangs because a resource in the framework is not available at paroli launch. This will be gone tomorrow.

- Fixed lots of bugs and issues such as: -- unicode in message reading -- loading messages from the SIM and saving incoming messages in the phone automatically -- made all our lists automatically react to changes in items etc -- gui issues such as the PIN dialog -- got rid of the green topbar  ;) -- muting ringtone on incoming call -- muting call in call (also as of tomorrow again)

- moved most of the Milestone two tickets[1] to testing

and

- were feverishly working on the stuff for the next milestone[2]

What are we planning to do next?

- keep on fixing issues in MS2 - continue working towards MS3 - get the kbd to match paroli on the image - get messaging and contacts up and running as soon as possible to allow brave testers to use paroli daily ... any volnteers ?  ;)

--if anyone is interested in helping out with paroli, contribute code or test or or or ... Let us know! [1]]

Installation

on its own image (FSO MS 5 based):

kernel: kernel

image: paroli-image

Only the package

In order to get the package from unstable you'll need to adjust the configuration of opkg:

echo src/gz openmoko-unstable-armv4t http://downloads.openmoko.org/repository/unstable/armv4t > /etc/opkg/om-unstable.conf

Then do an opkg-update and opkg install paroli.

This should get you the newest version.

Downloads

You can downloads paroli from : http://downloads.freesmartphone.org/fso-milestone5/feeds//armv4t/paroli_0.2.1+gitr7a2...442-r0_armv4t.ipk

or from:
