We have this:
https://github.com/maemo-leste/maemo-multimedia-tone-generator - but I
am not sure if it's what you're looking for.

Maybe Ivaylo (CC) has an idea.

So for sure mce has support for vibrations and screen wakeup:


There are also dbus calls there for having the screen "unlock". (Careful
not to use the actual lock screen feature, or make sure you know the
unlock code)


The problem: our current mce doesn't yet support the new mainline Linux
vibration via evdev interface yes. The Nemo mce does, but we haven't
figured out how easy/hard it is to start using their mce.

In general, quite some of the dbus calls on that page should work.
Others (clearly) will not.
