You have to run the bluetooth demon in compatibility mode, and set permissions for /var/run/sdp (see the issues I keep open on my github). Unfortunately I don't have the competences to do much much more than copypasting patches.

And I shelved my linux partition for the moment, so I can't really work on splitting.

When I run smartcam (as root, for debugging, to be sure things work), I get sdp_connect: No such file or directory:

smartcam: registered DBUS service "org.gnome.smartcam"
Found smartcam device file: /dev/video3
smartcam: started comm thread
smartcam: listening on B8:9A:2A:40:D6:D8, port 1
sdp_connect: No such file or directory

Software on symbian phone does not find the client.

Anyone any idea?

I have reported it → here upstream, in any case.

This package contains a dkms kernel module.

Can you split up this package into a smartcam-dkms and a smartcam (just the userspace software), with approriate (opt)depends on each other?

Thanks for maintaining!

@rageltman: For me, build works.

But depends seems to miss some gtk2 stuff?

Looks like the GTK dependencies are broken:

Thank you very much

mirh commented on 2020-04-28 13:36 These are the clients for basically every sane phone OS ever.

klore commented on 2020-04-28 13:31

hi, now no error, working, but..

'and install symbian package (.sis) from /usr/share/smartcam/phone_installs on your phone'

already located the two .sis files, how i do install them? or where I put them?

mirh commented on 2020-04-28 12:54

When you install the package, what you need to do afterwards should be printed to screen AFAIK. Anyway you just have to modprobe videodev, and then smartcam.

klore commented on 2020-04-28 12:51

hi, what driver i have to insmod? long list lsmod...
