 Troubleshooting and Reporting of Bugs
Are the Call/SMS buttons grayed out?
- This means it is not logged in
- In the account configuration, is a callback number set?
- Did you enter the area code?
- Have you tried calling a good known number like one of your own (that isn't the callback)
The views show stale data?
- Go into the menu and select "Refresh"
Information to include when reporting an issue
- Your version of Dialcentral
- Information from the steps you followed above
- From what tab are you having issues (Dialpad, Recent, Messages, Account Info)?
- Is it a US or international number?
- (For the advanced) Could you post the contents of "~/.dialcentral/dialcentral.log"
For serious users and serious problems (Google changes the "API") is the following command:
/opt/dialcentral/lib/backends/gvoice/gvoice.py USERNAME PASSWORD
Note that this writes a bunch of files with sensitive information to the current working directory. Please gather those up, scrub them if desired, and send them to me directly to avoid sensitive information from being leaked out.
 DC Fails to Load (Maemo 4.1)
There is a chance I broke things, but there is a chance you are hitting an issue due to bad packages in extras-devel.
- Uninstall all Qt applications if they aren't already(DialCentral, Gonvert, ejpi)
- Disable extras-devel
- Install DialCentral and any of your Qt applications you had to uninstall
- Enable extras-devel
So it looks like the version of PyQt in extras-devel is broken but not the one in extras. Installing DialCentral while extras-devel is enabled will pull in the broken version. So let's avoid that.
Really if you want this, maybe you should be using The One Ring.
If notifications are acting odd, try experimenting with these
python /opt/dialcentral/lib/alarm_handler.py -x # Show alarm python /opt/dialcentral/lib/alarm_handler.py -d # Delete the alarm python /opt/dialcentral/lib/led_handler.py # Stop the LED
Example notifiers included:
/opt/dialcentral/lib/alarm_notify.py #Default /opt/dialcentral/lib/examples/log_notifier.py /opt/dialcentral/lib/examples/sound_notifier.py
The program that periodically checks for new messages has its own log file: ~/.dialcentral/notifier.log
