Overview

Until OpenMoko releases an official GUI-Tool to change settings, SettingsGUI allows you to set various settings of the gta01.

This programm is written in Python using pygtk. It can be used only if those are present in your environment.

(see SettingsGUI#Environment)

Current Features

  • Screen (Backlight enable/disable, Backlight brightness, Screen Orientation)
  • Audio (profile selection, volume)
  • GSM (Restart gsmd, signal strength)

Planned Features

  • GSM (Provider selection, enable/disable gsm-reciver)
  • Bluetooth (device scanning, connection, signal strength)
  • GPRS (select APN, display transfer rate)
  • Battery (show capacity, voltage, charger-status)

Comment on GSM-Support

  • As there are no gsmd python bindings available at the time, SettingGUI uses python-subprocess and threads to communicate to the commandline of libgsmd-tool for the time being.

Download

SettingsGUI-0.4.tar.gz

Environment

The following archives will have to be installed:

  • python-core
  • python-misc
  • python-lang
  • python-pygtk
  • python-subprocess
  • python-threading (should be a dependency of python-subprocess... ?)
  • python-pygtk-dev (should not be needed... ?)
  • python-pycairo-dev (should be a dependency of python-pygtk-dev and not be needed... ?)

If you want to test this and do not have a build environment, you can 'ipkg install' the python components from the ScaredyCat repositories.

Installation / Execution

  • Uncompress tar.gz file
  • run:
export DISPLAY=:0.0
python SettingsGUI-x.x/SettingsGUI.py
Personal tools
