I use to use Ubuntu 13.04 and 13.10 with custom built ofono.
The problem when you experiment with ofono on your dev machine is that
you will loose your internet connection in case ofono goes nuts. So I
I’ve brought up ofono and econnman on Ubuntu 14.04.01 LTS
using the packages available via apt-get on a generic Intel laptop.
Haven’t tested Bluetooth, but it’s working with wifi and wired ethernet. I’m now
trying to figure out how to add “cellular” to the technologies supported by ofono.
After upgrading the linux kernel to 3.19, I can see wwan0 showing up
in /sys/class/net so the device (a Huawei E3272 LTE dongle) is being
detected by the kernel properly (and it works if I use sakis3g).
I think there was a Huawei specific bug in the shipped version of the
kernel that blocked me earlier.
Short of reading the ofono code - which I can do later this week - any pointers
on connecting cellular with ofono?
would say it's better to run ofono experiment on the embedded
Set up your dev computer with the cross toolchain, and mount (part of)
the board rootfs on your dev computer and build (or install) ofono there.
My target board isn’t ready yet. I could try an experiment with an old
Raspberry Pi B.
