Some Openmoko hacking

  • Fuzzy number matching
  • Time display in the SMS view

Patches are at http://git.nomeata.de/?p=openmoko.git;a=summary

Git repository is at http://git.nomeata.de/git/openmoko.git

Sleep Menu Item

Put the following script somewhere, e.g. /home/root and make it executable (chmod +x sleep). Now you can use ./sleep in the terminal to enter suspend mode.

#!/bin/sh
dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.Hal /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.SystemPowerManagement.Suspend int32:0

If you put the following file in .local/share/applications/sleep.desktop, you will have a menu entry in the Utilities menu for the sleep script:

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Sleep
Exec=/home/root/sleep
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=GTK;Utility
StartupNotify=false

What should work before I consider the phone usable as my regular phone:

  • Screen locking that does not obscure the new messages / missed call indicators.
  • Phone should suspend even when display is (accidentally) touched, as long as the screen lock is not lifted.
  • LED indication of new messages / missed calls when in suspend mode.
  • Enough battery power to reliably work at least one day.
