Pre Conditions

  1. Ensure Rootfs is remounted as read/write.
  2. $ sudo mount -o remount,rw /

  3. Install dependencies
  4. $ sudo apt install ofono-tests telepathy-ring apertis-tests gir1.2-telepathyglib-0.12 telepathy-mission-control-5

  4. $ /usr/share/ofono/tests/list-modems

  5. Power up modem:
  6. $ /usr/share/ofono/tests/enable-modem $your_phone_id

    $ /usr/share/ofono/tests/online-modem $your_phone_id

  7. Add a telepathy-ring account:
  8. $ mc-tool add ring/tel tp-ring-test

  9. Enable account:
  10. $ mc-tool enable ring/tel/account0

  11. Test making a call:
  12. $ /usr/lib/chaiwala-tests/telepathy/telepathy-ring call $number_to_call
