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 get root. Copy script to /usr/local/bin and make it executable:

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

Call up program as 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 parameters “OWN_NUMBER” and “PASSWORD”. Use values you have used when creating your account.

Last step has to be done in Kontact. Open addressbook and select "Settings > Configure addressbook …”.

Look for “SMS Text” and enter the following string:

smsjoker-script "%N" "%F"
