Bluemote is a bluetooth remote control for mobile phones.
I had initially chosen the name Blueremote but just before releasing the program I realised that there is another program by the same name. Due to lack of time and sleep, I just removed the "re" and made it Bluemote.
Use your bluetooth enabled T610 (or compatible Sony Ericsson phones) as a remote for your Linux PC. The remote's menu can be found in the T610 phone under "Connectivity->Accessories". I added it as the first one in the shortcut list and I can go to it directly by moving the joystick to the left! This program was inspired by bluexmms and the act of owning a T610. Many thanks to the author of bluexmms for providing a link to the Sony Ericsson manual he used for writing bluexmms. With out the manual I would have never started on this project.
Bluemote differs from bluexmms in several ways. Bluexmms is a XMMS "plugin" but Bluemote is a complete remote. You can virtually execute any command on your PC from your phone. If you use the built in scripting commands, you can even manage a micro shell (sh) on your phone, complete with login password.
Here are some key features of "Bluemote":
Emulate mouse and keyboard
Built-in micro scripting language for menus
Menu displayed on phone is highly customisable
You got to try it out and play around with the scripting to understand the real potential
Mouse up doesn't work with joystick. Temporary fix: Remove the CharSet option if it's not important for you. I will fix this in the next minor release, and when fixed CharSet 8859-1 will be mandatory for it to work.
What's New in This Release:
Added support for sending messages from PC to phone. "You have got mail!"
