We're still here

Rumours of PHP-GTK's death have been greatly exaggerated! The project is very much still alive, but we're waiting for PHP 5.3 to come out, and also some work needs to be done on the Cairo extension before a new release can be made. This should be completed soon. This release will come with support for GTK+ 2.14 and 2.16, Cairo, and PHP 5.3.

The next release will also include official installers for Windows and Mac OSX, and an installer script (thank you bob) for Linux.

knj SMS

screenshot for KNJ SMSThis application is another SMS-sender. It works via either Gnokii, a knj SMS gateway or the two danish providers CBB ( or Bibob ( It has a phonebook, groups of contacts, logs sent messages and have a quick-search-function.

Its default language is english - but I have also translated it into danish. If you want to translate it into other languages, it can easily be done via "poedit" (aptitude install poedit) - since it works via locales.

knj SMS gateway

It can receive a SMS and post it to another application via HTTP-post, or other computers can connect to it via a socket and send SMS through it. It can even bounce messages to another knj SMS gateway. I reads SMS via Gnokii and saves them to a database of your choice. Works with MySQL, SQLite, PostgreSQL and even Access on Windows.

Mac 10.4 (Tiger)

Ok I want to get it running on my MacBook.
I found an installer to to do it.
When I try and run the PHP file I get the following: -

nicholas-shiells-computer:/usr/local/php-gtk/bin nshiell$ ./php
dyld: unknown required load command 0x8000001C
Trace/BPT trap

Because the PHP for PHP-GTK won't run I can't do a php -v or anything :-(

Please can you help me?
