DTMF generator address book plugin


Created by Maemo.Org member Birefringence, This program addresses the issue of dialling DTMF tones from the address book.

If you ever wanted to dial a number from your address book over a landline without having to type in the number, here is the solution: I have created
a) a command line program that outputs DTMF tones over the speaker
b) an address book plugin that executes the above mentioned program from the options menu of a selected contact.
The program is available from extras-devel. If you choose the package “abook-dtmf” containing the plugin, the other package “dtmf” containing the command line program should be selected automatically.
After installation it might be necessary to kill the “osso-addressbook” process once for the plugin to be loaded.
For numbers containing a “+” it is possible to adjust the international call prefix to your local choice from an options screen.
It is in a rather early state of development.
