Get the latest git version, i've added an option to start a command on launch. - Feb 17 2012
KDroid sends the entire contact database which includes contacts stored in the cloud, but not the ones on the sim i think. - Sep 10 2011
The idea is good, i will add a filter to the contact list. Btw. if you use kaddressbook, you can use it to send text messages via kdroid. - Sep 10 2011
I could add a setting, which if selected automaticly forwards the adb port and connects to localhost. - Sep 10 2011
As you figured out, you first need to start adb to forward the port before kdroid binds to it.

Most notifications won't work over usb, because it is not possible to start a tcp connection from the phone. So the android app can't connect to the desktop app, only the other way around.

I changed the try icon to passiv mainly because of this post: http://aseigo.blogspot.com/2011/08/system-tray-icon-hiding.html

What do you mean you recived two messages when you send one to yourself? Do you mean the notification on the phone?

Weired that you only see 4 contacts, because it should transfer the complete database. Maybe all the other contacts stored somewhere else?

As for the formating, i don't change it. I take the text the way it is stored in the database. The only thing i remove are newlines in the textmessage.

The problem is i can't reproduce most of the bugs you are experiencing, it is working fine here (Android 2.3.5, KDE 4.7.0). I'll try to make it more reliable on other devices, but it is not easy, because i can only test/debug it on my own device. - Sep 05 2011
Switched everything to TCP, try the dev branch and let me know if it works.

USB is also working now, set the IP to localhost and start "adb forward tcp:48564 tcp:48564" - Sep 01 2011
cmake can't finde some kde4-cmake modules. Maybe you need to install a kde4-dev package. What distro are you on? - Sep 01 2011
UDP is the easier protokol to use, I don't have to deal with connections and streams. I can just send a packet with the data as payload. And as UDP doesn't give me any problemes, i saw no reason to change it. But I think i will try to implement tcp sometime this week. - Aug 29 2011
If your KDE is in /usr , which it probably is, just enter these commands:
Quote:

git clone git://github.com/Kn3cht/kdroid-desktop.git kdroid-desktop
cd kdroid-desktop
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug ..
make
make install

Strange the "unknown packet" error only happens, if the network connection isn't reliable. I'm using udp packets so there is no 100% guarantee that the packets arrive (intact). Maybe I should be looking into a tcp connection.

You can test the git develop branch, i've changed a few things concerning the data transfer.

I think your idea to allow the user to start/stop the service is good, maybe I'll implement it later today.
As for the icon, i'm using the oxygen pda icon, because it's the most suitable out of the oxygen icons - Aug 28 2011
Done. Just set the sms command to
Quote:
kdroid --quiet --send --address "%N" --body "%t"


and it will be send. Or without --quiet --send to show it in the kdroid window. - Aug 25 2011
I've created git repositories. The service should stay in the background now and if the system kills it, it is restarted after a few seconds. This broke the port setting, for this to work i first have to create an rpc interface first. - Aug 24 2011
I think kddressbook integration should be easy once i changed the app to an kuniqueapplication, so it can only be started once. After it should just be a matter of calling "kdroid -s 123456789" or something like that.

I think akonadi integration would also be nice, but we'll se first I have to lern a bit more about (kde/android-)softwaredevelopment. - Aug 24 2011
It doesn't depend on a rooted phone.

This is my first android app, I haven't figured out the service part quite yet. It starts the service, but as I understand there is no way to keep it running in the background forever, android starts and stops it as it sees fit. I think I have to somehow send an android intend to start it, before the desktop part can use it. - Aug 24 2011
The install fails because I've set the minimum sdk version to 10 (2.2 is 8), because thats the only version I could test it with. However you can change the line <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="10" /> in the AndroidManifest to 8 or lower.

USB support is planed, but I need to implement it in better way than I did before. - Aug 24 2011

It stores them where all kde apps store their data, in my case it is ~/.kde4/share/apps/kdroid/. In there are 2 sqlite .db files, which are copied from your phone. I think it doesn't make sense to store them elsewhere.
If you want to have them in plain text i could write an export function to generate one. - May 07 2011
What do you mean by save? It already copies the entire sms database to your computer, so you can view them even if your phone is not connected. - May 07 2011

I think the drag on emty spaces is kind of annoying, at least the in the way it is implemented right now.

Every time i accidentally click on an empty space firefox, which is maximized, resizes to the default size. KDE apps only do this if you really drag them not just click.

It would be nice to have an option to disable it, or if it would work like kde apps do.

However thanks for your work on this great addon/style.
