What is glinuxsms?
glinuxsms is a GNOME2 GUI/front-end for linuxsms, an interesting tool to send SMS
to cellphones all over the world.
With glinuxsms you just write your
message and click SEND, no need to get write the full command on a
It uses linuxsms as a backend, and its
configuration files as well.
The main purpose for now is to keep it simple and light.
Why should you use it?
If you are a GNOME user, then you may SMS message your contacts with a few
clicks, no need to launch a xterm to write the full commands.

Catalano: 1) add "contrib" to you packages source 2) type (as root): "urpmi glinuxsms"

Though already providing basic functionality, there is some stuff I'd like to see in
- glinuxsms icon
- (at work) Character counter based on server's limit (sug. by jonas)
- (at work) Address Book and Server/Password (linuxsms format)
- (already addressed) libglade support
- Translation support (perhaps YOU can help)
- Microsoft Windows support (I assume that since this is Perl and
GTK-based, it will work out-of-box, but some testing would be nice)
- People using it and sending feedback

linuxsms is developed by z0mbie.
