I have compiled gammu 1.13
That is the program that does the hard work behind wammu.

Unfortunately I have not got gammu to work with my mobile phone yet.

I am trying to get wammu to compile and work also.

It may take a while - it is not compile friendly somehow - it uses python.

When I get far enough with it and both work I will try to make a .pet for it - but it may take a long time.

I am compiling it in Puppy 4.0.
Which puppy are you using otello37?

Sub_title: wammu for mobile phone, cell phone, handy.
 

So far I found out you need the following:
gammu
python-gammu
wammu

You can compile gammu and python-gammu from source if you have python and c
That's all there in the puppy 4 developers sfs module
devx_400.sfs

To compile wammu you need wxpython. (wxpython-2.8.7.1-i486-2pv.tgz) That is not in the devx module. It is 17mb!
I downloaded it from slackware and then converted it to a pet
using tgz2pet in a terminal
Installed the converted .pet and it worked.

Then wammu compiled okay and worked - as far as I know.
It had some errors trying to work with my mobile phone - not sure yet if that is the problem or if the compiling was bad somewhere.

For reference sources used are:
gammu-1.2.0.0.tar.gz
python-gammu-0.2.6.tar.gz
wammu-0-27.tar.gz

Once it all works together I will try and separate the files that are spread all over the system using "make install" after compiling and then make a .pet

Okay I've created a trial .pet with gammu-1.20.0, python-gammu-0.26 and wammu-0.27 - all this on Puppy 4.0

As far as I have tested it - it works but won't work with my 3rd party DKU5 cable and an old Nokia 3120. Sorry I don't have a better phone to test it with. Others have problems with these cheap cables with ATX chips in it - so I think its not a fault of the software.

Unfortunately I think wammu uses some live wxpython routines so you need wxpython-2.8.7.1-i486-2pv.tgz from slackware (www.slacky.eu) (and converted it to a pet) to make it run.
It needs something from wxpython when it runs- strange!

The .pet is about 2.4mb

Email me if you want to try it out and I will send it to anyone willing to try it on another system or eventually host it.

PostPosted: Fri 22 Aug 2008, 17:47    Post_subject: Another solution using Gnokii
Sub_title: Smaller cellphone mobile phone handy telefonino program for Nokia
 

I just downloaded Gnokii (Nokia Telphone Handler for Linux) with XGnoki
from:
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Network/gnokii-0.6.12.pup

The program itself is far lighter (1mb) than wammu and does all I need (download sms, type sms, copy contacts, ringtones etc).

I still had issues with my old Nokia 3120
Found out I had to do some mounting first as my DKU-5 Cable is a cheap copy using an Ark3116 chip. This is really a usb to serial converter. Perhaps this will help someone else:

1. Check what the device really is. In a terminal do this:
cat /proc/bus/usb/devices

You should find for the ark chip DKU5 copy:
Vendor 0x6547
Product ID 0x232
Bus 1
Level 1
Speed 12.00mbit
max current 500mA
Manufacturer ArkMicroChips

USB-UART Controller
Manufacturer=ArkMicroChips
Product=USB-UART Controller
VendorID=6547 ProductID=0232 KERNEL-MODULE=ark3116

To fire up the usb to serial that needs to run in the background type this in a terminal
modprobe usbserial vendor=0×6547 product=0×0232
then to turn on the ark chip
modprobe ark3116

Check its all working by typing
dmesg


You should have something like:
ark3116 converter now attached to ttyUSB0
( I had to unplug and reinsert the usb cable at least twice -but that happens in windows too with these cheap cables)

Check if its all working with gnokki by doing
gnokii --identify

If you have issues check the .gnokiirc file in the root folder (~) and don't forget to use CRTL-H in Rox to show hidden files
- mine looks like:
Code:
[global]
port = /dev/ttyUSB0
model = 6510
initlength = default
connection = dlr3p
use_locking = yes
serial_baudrate = 19200
smsc_timeout = 10



Then click on the icon for run xgnokii
and you should be in business
