This is still only in extras-devel which can be a very dangerous place.

I am taking bug reports and suggestions for Empathy, Maemo 5, and Maemo 4.1 users.

If you wish to help fix bugs or add features, well, then I will help you no matter the platform

EDIT: This is no longer true for any pltform

I've already found 2 bugs.

(Cosmetic) The log claims updates are in ms when they are really in seconds.

(Potential Battery Drain) The state machine is broken such that it is always checking for new texts every 20s rather than taking longer as we get further away from the last message sent or received. It will be interesting to see what the batter ramifications are for this.

It won't be till tonight that I get these fixed.

Great news epage.
I had mistakenly installed the One Ring before when it was still in the works and sadly it didn't do anything - except get a stern warning fronm you when we complained on the forums :-)

This time I am eager to try it out as I have been looking forward to when the kitten eating software will have its full and tame down a bit (for Maemo 5).

Kudos once again.

Hi,
I installed this and can't find any trace of it? Other than in the app manager. Where's it at? How do you use it?

If you are using maemo 4.1, I recommend uninstalling.

if you are on Maemo 5 and are completely uncomfortable with the command line, I recommend uninstalling.

If neither of the two above apply then you treat it just like MSN, Yahoo, GTalk, Skype, SIP, etc.
  • Click the status bar
  • Select the chat item which brings up "My availability"
  • Select "Accounts"
  • Select "New"
  • Look for "Google Voice" and select it
  • Enter username/password and click OK
  • Make sure, through your "Screen Name" that the callback number is the one you want
  • In the phone, enter a number in the dialpad and select "Google Voice"
  • In Conversations, go to the App Menu and select "Send IM to", enter the number and select "Google Voice"

BTW Great app! Thanks for your hard work!

I've been trying it out, is it possible to make a call from the contacts using OneRing? I was looking in my contacts and i dont see an option to use OneRing, it seems that it can only be used from the keypad...

Most folks dont make calls from the keypad they usually do so from contacts.. Being able to call from contacts would be great if possible.

See "Maemo 5" -> "Known Issues" -> "Support for System Contacts" on the first post.

I thought I did what is needed to support this but something is lacking and I will need to do further work on it. I did not feel like it was something to hold up a beta though.
