Score 82%
Description:

Bluetooth Remote-Profile for the Sony Ericsson K750i and compatible cellphones. The Phone has 3 built-in profiles for WMP/Powerpoint/Desktop but with keys already used under KDE/Linux. This new Profile has an edited backgroundpicture with AmaroK-Logo and new keycodes that should be 'free' in KDE.


Installation:
Simply upload the .hid file with the 'bluetooth obex push client' (KDE 'send -by-bluetooth') to your mobile phone and connect. If you already defined global hotkey in amaroK, just set the remote keys to the 'alternate' global key.
Works also with other Mediaplayers, if you define the 'global hotkeys' for Kaffeine or your preferred Audioplayer.

when i try to define the mobile-keypresses, amarok does not respond to them.
cat /var/log/messages gives:

hcid[9392]: link_key_request (sba=00:20:E0:7A:2D:56, dba=00:16:20:2A:7A:9F)

hidd[9412]: HID create error 2 (No such file or directory)

>> If you already defined global hotkey in amaroK, just set the remote keys to the 'alternate' global key."...

This addition is for people who already use keyboard-keycodes for amarok and don't want to learn "my" new. Amarok could assing 2 global hotkeys for every action. So, if you have a working multimedia keyboard you don't have to change the hotkeys, but add them as second hotkey...

1.) The Keycodes have to be defined in Amarok itself (maybe OPTIONS -> GLOBAL HOTKEYS, I've got a german version running here) Instead of klicking on your keayboard to define a key, hit the phonebutton for the action o perform.

2.) As I used Winamp in the past, my keycodes are orientated to the codes used there:

CTRL + ALT + HOME = Play/Pause
CTRL + ALT + PgUp = Last Song
CTRL + ALT + PgDn = Next Song
CTRL + ALT + End = Show/Hide Amarok
CTRL + ALT + M = Mute
CTRL + ALT + O = OnScreen Display
CTRL + ALT + + = Increase Loudness
CTRL + ALT + - = DeCrease Loudness
CTRL + ALT + S = Stop

I sent your file to my SE z520i and it seems to be working, except that it does not affect Amarok itself... I guess I have global hotkeys configured incorrectly, but I don't understand how to do that correctly.

Could you elaborate on defining global keys? Where and how do I configure that? In Kcontrol > regions and accessibility > hotkeys > global hotkeys i see no way to configure something for amarok... I do not understand what you mean by " If you already defined global hotkey in amaroK, just set the remote keys to the 'alternate' global key."...

Or, maybe you could write down exactly how to check if the phone is really sending something to computer, and, which button on the phone screen emulates which keyboard shortcut? That would help a lot...

Looks great, but every time i try to start it on my k700i, phone freezes. K700i supports HID, so I think it should be compatible. Any ideas? Anyone who works it on k700i?

Thanks

Sorry, can't answer this, I only send the WMP profile from my phone to the pc, edit the files and send it back, so i can't say anything about the compatiblity to older phones...

Cool :) Works fine :)

Can you make a profile using X multimedia (?) keycodes (XF86AudioPlay, XF86AudioMute, and so on...)?
