    Tried and tested on a SE K810. Works perfect. I'll be able to test a K850 in a couple of weeks if no one else has...

    Hey!
    I reinstalled my OS and when installing this I noticed that the link for the python-support package is broken. It should be updated to http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/po...buntu1_all.deb
    Cheers!

    This gadget is really cool, and actually, for me it is handy as well. It (obviously) works with a nokia 6630 too.

    But when Amarok plays streaming media, it does not disconnect from the server when it is paused. Isn't that a problem?

    In case I want to have Amarok stopped instead of paused when I leave, what would that script, bp_amarokplay, have to look like?
    I've got terminal windows.

    Replace "dcop amarok player playPause" with "dcop amarok player stop"

    Indeed it is very cool.
    I was figuring if there's a way to totally mute all sound, instead of just pause Amarok (cause I am not using amarok, I am using Exaile, and there are several other sounds that I dont want going off on the highest volume when I'm gone if I forget to turn of my amplifier).

    Anyone?

    It works with my Nokia N95.

    But when using a bluetooth headset at the same time the sound when talking to someone is very bad, so i cant use this.

    enable locking in your screensaver and use the lock command of

    Code:
    /usr/bin/gnome-screensaver-command --activate
    and deactivate with the same as above except with --deactivate
