Can you add regular PSTN phone support to this application? It would certainly be great.

Sorry for not answering sooner. KDE-APPS does not send emails to poster/submitter and usually I have a look here once a month.

The application is meant to be an information tool on incoming calls. Sure I could add a thousand things but it would not be the same small application any more.

I'm sorry, but I won't add PSTN support - most of all because I do not have too much knowledge about that.

Feature Request:

I'm not sure how practical this is, as I know nothing about ISDN, but could this be made to work with called ID on a regular phone line connected to the computer through a modem?

The first thing for installation that has to be done are modifications in the file /etc/isdn/callerid.conf. This file is needed by the isdn subsystem/daemon and that's where the caller's number appears first.

The modifications there call my scripts and programs (with the right parameters). As long as you have the needed data anywhere else and you can call a script with parameters from there, you can use this tool. I'm terribly sorry, but I don't know whether this works with modems, too. But - to be honest - I doubt.

Maybe you or anyone else has any experience with that.

There's a tool for that already, it's called kim (k isdn monitor) but was never released. It can be found in the kdenonbeta module in svn.

Maybe one should enhance kim instead, it already supports kaddressbook integration and uses a daemon for monitoring the isdn-device, it can also be used over a network.

" ... kdenonbeta module in svn ..."
to me sounds like maybe a wonderful program probably written in C or C++. ?!?!
I speak a lot of languages but not C. So this is not a job for me.
But if anyone wants to translate it to me, especially the part with kaddressbook ... go on. I can hardly wait.

It would be nice if this were integrated with the KDE addressbook, so you don't have to enter names, phone numbers and pictures twice.

I'm gonna think about that. It sure would be good. But what about people that don't use the KDE Addressbook (like me)? Anyway - will put it on the TODO.

I'm looking forward to getting more reflections about this.
