Open Mobile Suite
Technical preview now available!
After exactly one year I can present you the first technical preview of this application!
I'm sorry it took so long, but there were some major changes in the application (e.g. splitting it in several parts and using DBus as IPC framework)

You connect to your Android phone using bluetooth (Wifi and USB will be supported soon, it will also be possible to initiate a connection using Android Cloud to Device)

You can write messages to multiple contacts using the very innovative contact browser (with support for auto-completion).

It's possible to edit your contacts (although this is currently not supported by the Android server application on your mobile phone)

Original post from 27th December 2010:

Hello,

I'm the maintainer of Series60-Remote, an open source Software Suite for Symbian / S60 smart phones. This application connects to a Bluetooth service on your phone and allows you to manage your contacts, calendar entries, messages and files from your PC.

A few days ago I got my first Android-based phone, a HTC Desire HD, and now I want to port the application also to this platform.
The server application on the phone is rather simple (you can have a look at the Python source file for the S60 platform[1]). It just responds to some commands from your PC (e.g. request the hash of the contacts).
So this would be a great chance to have a FOSS suite that runs on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows and supports Symbian and Android!

What do you think of such a project?
I've never used Java before so it would be great if anybody could help me with the port.

If you need further informations you can go to the project page: series60-remote.sf.net (when the port is ready I will rename the software to 'Open Mobile Suite')

Thanks for your comments,
Lukas

This looks great! I run OSX, so I'll have to try it out when the project gets that far. If you want a beta tester, just PM me =)

Great application, I've used it on my Lubuntu VM and it is running perfectly.

However, I installed the application from the Ubuntu repository you have created and it seems that it doesn't list python-qt4-dbus as a dependency as such errors are shown whenever you attempt to start it. After installing python-qt4-dbus it works perfectly although I would recommend updating the dependencies.

When I try launch openmobilesuite-connectionmanager I get an error:
Code:
ImportError: No module named base.element.device

Similar with openmobilesuite-gui:
Code:
ImportError: No module named base.element.connection

Which packages are dependencies? I'm on openSUSE 12.1, Python v2.7.2.

It'd be happy about any feedback!

Hi Lukas,

First of all many thanks for your work, I used every day Series60-Remote on my old Nokia, it was very helpfull!

I'm facing an issue to test OpenMobileSuite on my droid (Alcatel OT-990). I assume I've installed it correctly (from ppa on my Ubuntu 11.10) and openmobilesuite-gui is running well (see attached log).
The bluetooth device scanning can't detect my droid ("No devices found", see attached log), although it detects my old Nokia (N95 8GB, but I can't save its paramaters, see attached log) and my droid is well detected by a "hcitool scan" (see attached log).

Thanks for your help to solve it! :)

Hello,

at first I'd like to apology for my late reply, i didn't get mail notifications for this post. :(

When I try launch openmobilesuite-connectionmanager I get an error:
Code:
ImportError: No module named base.element.device

Similar with openmobilesuite-gui:
Code:
ImportError: No module named base.element.connection

Which packages are dependencies? I'm on openSUSE 12.1, Python v2.7.2.

You need to install all of this packages:
openmobilesuite-base-0.9.90.tar.gz
openmobilesuite-connectionmanager-0.9.90.tar.gz
openmobilesuite-connection-oms-0.9.90.tar.gz
openmobilesuite-connection-obex-0.9.90.tar.gz
openmobilesuite-gui-0.9.90.tar.gz
openmobilesuite-mobile-android-0.9.90.tar.gz

(the order is not important)
You also need to have PyQt4 (with sqlite database support), PyOBEX, python-dbus (with Qt mainloop integration) and pypluez installed, python-matplotlib is optional (sorry, i don't know the openSuse package names)

Holy cow! Exactly the software I was looking for plus more!

Will try it on my Lubuntu desktop. Not only that, now I have a use for my bluetooth-USB for my desktop.

Hope you'll like it. ;)

BTW: Wifi, USB and Android Cloud-to-Device connections will be added soon

As far as I can tell it's fully Python powered, so it should be fairly easy to port although I haven't looked in great detail into it.

Anxiously waiting for a windows installer :)

Sent from my GT-I9100 using XDA App

The predecessor of this application, Series60-Remote, had binary packages for Windows. The only difficulty to port Open Mobile Suite to Windows is that D-Bus is now a hard dependency. Some time ago python-dbus didn't work for Windows, but I talked to the maintainer of PyQt4, Phil Thompson, and he said that it should work with its latest release. So expect the windows binary installer soon. :)

Great application, I've used it on my Lubuntu VM and it is running perfectly.

However, I installed the application from the Ubuntu repository you have created and it seems that it doesn't list python-qt4-dbus as a dependency as such errors are shown whenever you attempt to start it. After installing python-qt4-dbus it works perfectly although I would recommend updating the dependencies.

Thanks, I really forgot this dependency (thought PyQt4 contains this package, like it's the case with Fedora). I'll update them for the next release.

This looks great! I run OSX, so I'll have to try it out when the project gets that far. If you want a beta tester, just PM me =)

Actually it should already work under OS X. You could try it if you're brave enough to install all dependencies using macports.
I'll try to make an application bundle soon.

Support for S60 will be added again in the next release.

The bug for the undetected droid is actually in pybluez.
I could fix it some time ago (see this mailing list thread: https://groups.google.com/group/pybluez/browse_thread/thread/3606131e5e108cd0 ) and the bugfix is already in the SVN repository of pybluez and will be in its next release.

Thanks for testing!

Thanks for your answer Lukas, I've installed the svn version of pybluez and my droid is now indeed detected!

But I'm still facing the other issue I described: although it detects my phone I can't save its paramaters:
Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openmobilesuite/gui/window/settings.py", line 475, in accept
    if self.saveSettings():
  File "/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openmobilesuite/gui/window/settings.py", line 483, in saveSettings
    self.database.deviceHideAll()
AttributeError: 'Settings' object has no attribute 'database'
How to fix it?

The settings window is not yet ported to the new framework.. the only way to add a new device is to delete the .config/OpenMobileSuite folder and re-run the wizard

Thanks, now I can add my droid to OpenMobileSuite.
Another issue: I launch the application on my droid, "Service is running", "1 active connection", I see the name of my computer and its bluetooth adress.
In my computer, OpenMobileSuite is updating contact list and stuck to 60%.
And now, force close of the mobile application: Sudden closure of the Open Mobile Application Suite (com.hetzenecker.openmobilesuite process). Thank you for trying again.

I've attached OMS'log on my computer, but not sure it'll help you, tell me if you need something else :)

The contact sync will be rewritten in the next release, if there are still errors it would be great if you could get a log from the device (using adb logcat)

This is a bug in pybluez, which i could fix in their SVN version. I'll include this in my PPA too
