A phone dialer and call handler.


Calls is licensed under the GPLv3+.


sudo apt-get install libgtk-3-dev libhandy-0.0-dev \
modemmanager-dev libmm-glib-dev libgsound-dev libpeas-dev


We use the meson and thereby Ninja. The quickest way to get going is to do the following:

meson -Dprefix=/usr/local/stow/calls-git ../calls-build
ninja -C ../calls-build
ninja -C ../calls-build install


Calls has a variety of backends. The default backend is "mm", which utilises ModemManager. To choose a different backend, use the -p command-line option. For example, to run with the dummy backend and some useful debugging output:

/usr/local/stow/calls-git/bin/calls -p dummy

If using ModemManager, Calls will wait for ModemManager to appear on D-Bus and then wait for usable modems to appear. The UI will be inactive and display a status message until a usable modem appears.


There is also an oFono backend, "ofono". This was the first backend developed but has been superceded by the ModemManager backend so it may suffer from a lack of attention.

The ofono backend depends on oFono Modem objects being present on D-Bus. To run oFono with useful output:

sudo OFONO_AT_DEBUG=1 ofonod -n -d

The test programs within the oFono source tree are useful to bring up a modem to a suitable state. For example:

./enable-modem /sim7100
./online-modem /sim7100

Then run Calls:

/usr/local/stow/calls-git/bin/calls -p ofono


One can also make use of the oFono modem simulator, phonesim (in the ofono-phonesim package in Debian):

ofono-phonesim -p 12345 -gui /usr/local/share/phonesim/default.xml

then, ensuring /etc/ofono/phonesim.conf has appropriate contents like:


run oFono as above, then:

./enable-modem /phonesim
./online-modem /phonesim

And again run Calls.
