    Thanks, this is really good! I've had to turn down the locking duration to 2 seconds or for some reason it takes much longer than the specified time to lock. I'm using a Sony Ericsson W810i

    [EDIT] Oh yeah, this is on Hardy and I just installed blueproximity and libpurple-bin through Synaptic... I assume I was correct in setting the owner to root for those scripts in /usr/bin ?

    samsung d500 working flawlessly on hardy, and channel 3.

    channel 7 keeps giving warnings on the phone, channel 3 doesn't.

    Thanks, eventually got it working here with a Nokia 3500. I'm using Hardy 64-bit. A couple of things though;

    -I didn't need to download python, I already had the suggested version installed
    -I could install BlueProximity from the repo, no need to download a deb
    -When BlueProximity scanned for channels on my phone, all of them were closed (I had to do the scan and find the object push channel as suggested earlier)
    -I had to activate locking on the screensaver and change the lock / unlock command as posted by sub101 a few posts above

    Apart from that, it was pretty easy! Thanks for an awesomely cool app. I'll have to try the script to pause/unpause Rhythmbox. Cheers!

    I'd like to report this howto and Blueproximity as working flawlessly with a Cingular/AT&T 8525 (or HTC Hermes).

    Thanks for the how-to!

    Re: Howto: Use BlueProximity and your cellphone for security

    Hi all,
    I would love to use BlueProximity but I can't get it right ....
    My phone is detected, but no ports are.. and with spdtool I get this message
    Code:
    hegrow@hegrow-desktop:~$ sdptool browse
    Inquiring ...
    Browsing 00:1A:1B:C9:E8:6A ...
    Service Search failed: Connection timed out
    ... I have a motorola l7 slvr. The connection normally times out after 60 seconds but the connection fails after 20-30 seconds ... ( At that time my phone does go back in 'invisible-mode' .. But even if I start the 60 seconds over and over again, it will always stop...
    My dongle is a Cheap Usb stick... And my phone and pc are paired

    // I also noticed that my phone gets stuck when I try to view the services....
    And that the distance is always on 0 ...
    I tried to use multiple channels

    Anyone?

    Thankx!
