Hacking umtsmon

After I had a beer with Klaas van Gend (the UMTSmon developer) and some members of the UUGN (that's from Seife: "umtsmon user group Nuremberg") two weeks ago, I hacked a little on UMTSmon

Here what I did:

  • added support to sort the content of QTable objects of the info dialog (bug #1616485) [1]
  • fixed tabstop order for some widgets [2][3]
  • reduce the really annoying flickering of the LCD widget in the main window, by use QWidget::setPaletteBackgroundPixmap() instead of QLabel::setPixmap() to draw the background image [4]

There are some ideas left to improve UMTSmon, some really nice features, we will see if and when I find the time to implement them ...

neat! quite a while a go since i used UTMS. I did it with kppp which lacks information on the connection status. so why not put the extra functionality of utms-mon in kppp?

1) UMTSmon is more a PoC (proof of concept) and it's no planed to exist for ever

2) AFAIK it's not planed to integrate it into kppp but sooner or later maybe into NetworkManager and with this then into KNetworkmanager, which is IMO the KDE-solution for the future.
