Received SMS going unnoticed

basically it should be possible, to write a rule for oeventsd in  
rules.yaml (incoming sms should be an event supported).
if not, you could opimd-cli and do something like

opimd-cli messages query MessageRead 0 | grep "Numer of results:" | awk  
'{print $4}'

which would print the number of unread (which 0 means, imo) messages  
("Numer" is the correct typo :-), but better check again).
as long as the resulting number != 0, you could trigger a vibration.

DISPLAY=:0 qdbus --system org.freesmartphone.odeviced  
org.freesmartphone.Device.LED.SetBlinking 60 3000

i still don't know, how to call directly via bash/dbus call, which would  
be a tad less resource consuming.

DISPLAY=:0 qdbus --system org.freesmartphone.opimd  

produces an error:
ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: ''
