Description:

Kall is a small application to dial the telephone numbers in your address book for you. It is used via kaddressbook or
as a stand-alone application.

Under Settings/Configure Kaddressbook/Dial Phone Number, select External Application and
enter kall --dial "%N" as the command. Then you can simply click on a phone number to dial it. Otherwise start kall from the menu (under Office) and then drag entries from kaddressbook into the phone number edit box.

If you enter all your telephone numbers in international format, i.e.
+cc-aaa-nnnn-nnnn where cc is the country code and aaa is the area code, Kall will localise the number by stripping off the + and possibly the country code and adding the appropriate dialling prefixes that you have entered in the Dialling Codes settings. This way, if you travel to another country, you need only update the settings with the local codes and do not need to change your address book entries.

This latest version completely removes all use of the old KABC interface and is updated to use Akonadi.

hi to everyone and sorry for asking again for help.
perhaps I don't get what exactly Kall can do, but is there a way to use it in a ADSL connection if you are behind a Wifi router?
(so /dev/modem and all the others interfaces listed in kall aren't working but /dev/eth0 or /dev/wifi0 are)

Thank you in advance for your help :)

Kall uses your modem to dial telephone numbers in your address book so you can talk to people. That's all.

I got the following error while running cmake...

Quote:CMake Error at /usr/share/kde4/apps/cmake/modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:139 (MESSAGE):
Could NOT find KdepimLibs (missing: KdepimLibs_CONFIG)
Call Stack (most recent call first):

Any idea?

What it says! You need to install the kdepimlibs package. I guess it is not installed by default by Ubuntu.

Sorry, my fault...
I've forgot to mention that kdepimlibs5 is installed yet on my machine.
So the problem is not the absence of that package... :(

Sorry, I can't really help since I don't use Ubuntu. You are obviously missing something so your best bet is to ask on the Ubuntu dev lists. Check your cmake, I have version 2.8.1

kdepimlibs-devel is needed, too.

Thanks, installing that package fixed my cmake problem!

BUT...

I've another problem while running make:

I'd be glad if anyone got some hint on how to fix this problem also...
...or does anyone got a .deb for Ubuntu Lucid? :P this would also fix the problem ;)

Thanks to everyone :)

I have never seen any messages like those, are they even English? Anyway, the problem probably is that you are missing the KDE development packages which are usually split off in binary distros. Try installing all of those.

Ok I've founded the solution to the second problem also. It was (as you said) a dev package that was needed.

So for all the (k)ubuntu/debian users you need to install the following dependecies before trying to compile the source: "kdepimlibs5-dev" and "libakonadi-dev". You can use the following command to install them:
Quote:sudo apt-get install kdepimlibs5-dev libakonadi-dev

binro: I suggest you to include this instruction in the description of the software ;)

Thx to everyone!
