The SMSCON Editor is a graphical user interface to the configuration file of the SMSCON. It has been build with PyQT.

With its assistance the user is able to edit from a GUI all the options and name the commands used for controlling the device by the SMSCON and stored at the configuration file, i.e. /usr/bin/smscon_config. In addition, it provides an interface to initialise (i.e. init, start, stop, reset and set/remove from the device's boot sequence) the smscon_daemon.



You can get find the latest version in the garage project page.

The application can be installed directly by the Application Manager (HAM). In the future, distribution will be done additionally via Extras.
