I've lost my Jolla phone in the appartment thanks to my lovely 1+ year old daughter. I can see from the wifi config that the phone is still on the network. Is there a way to trigger a ringtone/alarm from SSH? The phone probably is on the silent profile as calling it doesn't result in the phone ringing.

Would it be possible doing like this? I have not tried it, but apparently you should be able to change profile. link text

Hi.

To change the ambience to a non-silent one try the examples I provided in an answer here at TJC sometime ago:

Hope this helps.

Regards.

dbus-send --type=method_call --dest=com.nokia.profiled /com/nokia/profiled com.nokia.profiled.set_profile string:"general"

...works! Marvelous.

There is a tool meant mainly for testing alarms that should be usable in your case. Executing this from shell should cause clock-alarm-lookalike to occur in 5 seconds:

timedclient-qt5 -b'TITLE=button0' -e'APPLICATION=nemoalarms;TITLE=Hello;ticker=5'

This and @plemil's answer did the job. Hello little phone from underneath the sofa!

Glad to help. But I can not take any credit for the solution, just provided the link :-)
