How to send SMS using Kontact

Create an account at smsjoker (or something similar). Prices are ok and writing SMS at your PC just rocks.

Load script “smsjoker-script” from kde-apps.org. Open Konsole and with root permissions. Copy script to /usr/local/bin and make it executable:

1-
# cp smsjoker-script /usr/local/bin/
# chmod a+x /usr/local/bin/smsjoker-script

Call up program as the regular user once.

$ smsjoker-script

Now you will find a hidden file called “.smsjoker-script” in your home directory. Open this file with e.g. Kate and change the parameters OWN_NUMBER and PASSWORD. Use values you have used when creating your account.

Last step has to be done in [[Kontact|Kontact]. Open addressbook and select Settings -> Configure addressbook ….

Look for SMS Text and enter the following string:

smsjoker-script "%N" "%F"
