I had to replace a few program paths which were no more correct. But
then the first try was not so successfull as i hoped. It seems that the
script tries to create a simple gui which fails with an AttributeError.

DeprecationWarning: object.__init__() takes no parameters
  super(Connection, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
Let's go on
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./notifier", line 337, in <module>
    win.destroy = destroy
AttributeError: 'elementary.c_elementary.Window' object has no attribute

When i just remove the line 337 and run it i got another error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./notifier", line 360, in <module>
    bt_calls.clicked = show_missed_calls
AttributeError: 'elementary.c_elementary.Button' object has no attribute

When i also remove the two lines for the clicked event the script seems
to run. But when i call myself and hang up nothing happens. I don't know
if nothing hapens because of the commented out gui lines or if the code
doesn't work anymore in general. I see that there are quite some dbus
calls and maybe the syntax for them also has changed. :/

When i interpret it right then the gui part only shows the missed
calls/sms. So maybe the gui part isn't needed anymore because we can use
opimd-notifier to show the missed calls/sms.
But without the script's gui we need another way to confirm and
deactivate the reminder.
