Subject: How do I get headset button events without .btscorc?

I screwed up the posting of this and made it part of a totally unrelated
thread. So, Im posting it agin so that people might see it in proper
order. Sorry. I'm new at mailing lists.

I figured this one out all on my own! Here is a script in python that
uses dbus to get the bluetooth headset button press. I think it might be
helpful to add this to the wiki.


def handler(sender=None):
os.system ('/usr/bin/twinkle --cmd answerbye') # <- that's the part
specific to twinkle
import dbus, os, gobject
from dbus.mainloop.glib import DBusGMainLoop
bus = dbus.SystemBus()
bus.add_signal_receiver(handler, signal_name="AnswerRequested")
loop = gobject.MainLoop()



Original message:

I have searched all over the place and can't figure out how to do this. I
have a bluetooth headset connected to twinkle softphone. There are
commands available to send to twinkle, but with the new bluez drivers
(without btsco) I don't know how to get the button event. Can anyone help
