Hi Bastien,

Well, it doesn't just yet ;)
I have a patch to make it use libgnokii, which I sent to the mailing

Good news :-)

There are still a bunch of things that would need working on in
libgnokii. You can probably tell me whether those are possible:
- automated way to tell the driver to use from make and model

I'm not sure if you are talking about build time or about runtime. Anyway in both cases the answer is no, but it is easy doable.

- even better, connect only once, and be able to switch drivers on the
fly (connect to the phone, get the identification, switch driver
depending on the make and model, carry on as usual)

Also here, it is not possible at the moment, bu it should be doable in a bit more effort than the above.

- a way to receive events from the phone, such as new SMSs, instead of
having to poll

This is an interesting point. As far as I know we can subscribe to some events in FBUS protocol. I think it is not possible in AT mode. You get the info about the events but only just after sending the request to the phone. Example: the RING information from the phone -- it appears only after sending any command to the phone.

But why this is interesting. I'm thinking for already few days about low level daemon linked with libgnokii that would estabilish a connection with the phone(s) when availavle and that would offer D-BUS interface to the high level applications to communicate with the phone(s).

The first application I can see here is to display an information about incoming SMS and calls with XOSD interface.

take care,
