What is TkPhone

TkPhone is a personal Phonebook to store and call the phone numbers of your private life. Numbers are stored in a $HOME/.tkphone subdir chmod'ed as 0700, so that noone can access them.


If you want to upgrade from an earlier version to tkphone-1.0, you must delete the ~/.tkphonerc file.
That deletion is not necessary with tkphone-1.0.1 and up, it automatically updates that file.

 Software requirements

To run TkPhone you must have Tcl/Tk >= 8.x.
It was tested with Tcl/Tk >= 8.3.4


To install TkPhone from sources (after downloading .tar.gz file):

$ tar xvfz tkphone-x.y.z.tar.gz

$ cd tkphone-x.y.z

$ ./configure --prefix=/path/to/dir

Then as root:

# make install

To uninstall type (always as root)

# make uninstall

To install TkPhone from Debian package:

As root type:

# dpkg -i tkphone_x.y.z-1_i386.deb

Now you can type from a terminal

$ tkphone.tcl

That's all, Folks!
