Description Dennis Gilmore 2006-05-09 02:30:27 UTC
Spec URL:
KMobileTools is a KDE application that allows you to control your mobile phone
from your GNU/Linux workstation

To use KMobileTools you need a mobile phone, that can be attached to your PC
using any type of connection (serial, USB, bluetooth and irda were tested
successfully), and using an AT interface (modem-like)

DEFINE QT Dirs to ensure  build is ok
Spec URL:

also not 100% sure is I should include a udev ruleset.  the couple of mobile 
phones i have tried use /dev/ttyACM0  which gets 
[dennis@rpclnx001 SPECS]$ ls -la /dev/ttyACM0
crw-rw---- 1 root uucp 166, 0 May  9 08:32 /dev/ttyACM0

so the user cant access the phone. the two  things  that can make it easier is  
1 making the owner  the logged in user  or 
2 make the users  needing access members of the uucp group

Comment 2 Robin Laing 2006-05-17 22:42:23 UTC
As a mobile phone user, I think this would be a great tool to add.  I am trying
moto4lin which works with my Motorla phone but it would be better to have a full
tools available.

kmobiletools doesnt do everything.  it does not provide a way to put pictures 
and files on you phone or to take them off.  It allows you to manage sms and 
phone book

Hello.. I will review this package for you.. 


Review for release 2:

* RPM name is OK
* Source kmobiletools- is the same as upstream
* This is the latest version
* Builds fine in mock
* rpmlint looks OK
* File list looks OK

Needs work:
* Scriptlets: missing "gtk-update-icon-cache" in %post (wiki: ScriptletSnippets)
* Scriptlets: missing "gtk-update-icon-cache" in %postun (wiki: ScriptletSnippets)

Package looks pretty good. If you fix up the %post/%postun scriplets, I can
approve this submission. 

Comment 5 Dennis Gilmore 2006-07-21 11:14:27 UTC
I wont fix  the %post/%postun  there is no need to add gnome cruft to a kde 
package.  and as has been stated in quite a few package reviews  and there is 
a bug filed  gtk-update-icon-cache   should be run as a cron job  not in 

Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2006-07-21 11:23:10 UTC
Re: comment #5.  I support Dennis' comment.  The fdo icon spec only requires
"touch"ing the affected icon dirs.

Comment 7 Michael J Knox 2006-07-21 20:31:29 UTC
OK then. I am just following the guidelines :-) 

However, I will APPROVE the submission as is. Please do not forget to close this
review once its been imported into CVS.  

Comment 8 Dennis Gilmore 2006-07-21 21:47:13 UTC
thanks for the review,  branched and built will go out with next push
