    I too have the problem of the meter always jumping from 0 to 255. And not stopping anywhere in between. Any suggestions?

    Re: Howto: Use BlueProximity and your cellphone for security

    So I have this working. Great program. The only issue I have noticed is that once my computer is idle (I have it set to 10 minutes) the screen saver will no longer come on. This has only started happening since I installed BlueProximity.

    Re: Howto: Use BlueProximity and your cellphone for security

    I have it working sporadicly on Kubuntu. What is the lock and unlock commands for KDE4? I've found several commands, but either they don't work correctly, or refuse to unlock the screen once its back in range.

    edit: found info at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=910276
    The screen wakes up and sleeps fine, and it locks fine. but it's not auto-unlocking. Any ideas?

    edit 2: solved with the below script
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    PATH=$PATH:/opt/kde3/bin:/usr/bin
    echo ${KDE_SESSION_VERSION}
    case "$1" in
            lock)
                    if [ -n ${KDE_SESSION_VERSION} ] && [ "$KDE_SESSION_VERSION" -eq 4 ]; then
                            echo "KDE4 detected do the magic..."

                    ;;
            *)
                    echo "usage of $0:"
                    echo " $0 (lock|unlock)"
    
    esac
    note: in blueproximities options, set the lock to the script location, with the "lock" option. For unlock, set it to "unlock" see below.

    Have confirmed it works well with these two cell phones.
    (a) Motorola Ming A1200
    (b) Samsung Corby Speed SCH-F339
    Thanks a ton for this really cool utility.

    Works ok with the iPhone 3Gs just not sensitive enough, my locking distance is 1 for 5s and unlocking is 0 for 5 sec.
    Code:
    Dell D810          | Asus P5E
    Pentium M 2.26GHz  | E8200 2.66 OC @ 3.2GHz 
    1GB Ram            | 4GB Ram OC @ 4-4-4-12

    Hey Ubuntwinkel,

    I've just built the same setup for myself, it's really quite simple. In case you haven't figured it out yourself yet, here's how I do it:

    • I have a directory called Scripts in my home directory, so that's /home/tim/Scripts, which contains scripts called lock.sh and unlock.sh. It also contains a tailored motion.conf.
    • Blueproximity is set to run lock.sh when I leave and unlock.sh when I come back.
    • The magic is in the custom motion.conf, which tells motion to also store it's pid in /home/tim/Scripts and to store a video of all detected motion on my desktop.
    • When I return to my PC, and there's a video file on my desktop, I know somethings up and I can watch the video to see who's been in my room.


    Here's the scripts and the config to replicate my setup:

    lock.sh - Edit the path to your motion.conf!
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    # "Lock screen" script for BlueProximity
    
    ### Lock screen
    #gnome-screensaver-command -l
    
    ### Start motion
    
    # Is motion running?
    MOTIONPID=`pidof motion`
    if [ "$MOTIONPID" == "" ]
    then
            # Motion is not running
            # So start is up!
            motion -c /home/tim/Scripts/motion.conf
    else
            # Motion is running
            # Send it a config reload
            kill -s SIGHUP ${MOTIONPID}
    fi
    
    # Done
    unlock.sh - No need to edit
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    # "Unlock screen" script for BlueProximity
    
    ### Unlock screen
    #gnome-screensaver-command -d
    
    ### Stop motion
    
    # Is motion running?
    MOTIONPID=`pidof motion`
    if [ "$MOTIONPID" != "" ]
    then
            # Motion is running
            # Shut it down
            kill -s SIGTERM ${MOTIONPID}
    fi
    
    # Done
    As you can see, the Gnome desktop lock/unlock commands are also still in there, in case you want them. I keep them commented.

    motion.conf - Edit location for PID file (process_id_file) and location for movie (target_dir), otherwise just configure to match your webcam setup, see here.
    Code:
    # Rename this distribution example file to motion.conf
    #

    ; thread /usr/local/etc/thread2.conf
    ; thread /usr/local/etc/thread3.conf
    ; thread /usr/local/etc/thread4.conf
    This way, all files that motion needs to read from or write to are in accessible locations, owned by the user. Hope this helps, good luck with it

    Question Re: Howto: Use BlueProximity and your cellphone for security

    Anyone gotten this to work with Ubuntu 10.04? It seems to be reporting the distance very incorrectly.

    My setup:
    • Ubuntu 10.04
    • Mac Mini's built-in Bluetooth Adapter
    • HTC EVO 4G running Android 2.2


    Even when my EVO is far away it reports 3,4,5,6,7, or 255.

    I am using in 10.04 with Samsung impression.
    Sounds like just a strong Bluetooth connection on one device or maybe both.

    Re: Howto: Use BlueProximity and your cellphone for security

    Ok, so I didn't go through all fifteen pages of replies to check if someone already asked this before, but I'm going to take the chance that no one gets annoyed.

    Does this also work at start up, without an initial login? It's one of my start up applications and all, but I'm just not sure about how Ubuntu works. Whether it loads the program in the background before a user has logged in, which would lead it to login automatically, or would I have to log in the first time and then on I wouldn't until the next restart?

    If its in startup apps it will load after login, along with the Bluetooth manager.

    However im sure there will be a way to alter the order so you can login with it - hopefully someone else will have the answer for how.
