Has anyone succeeded in synchronising their Palm (contacts, calender and
to-dos) with the relevant applications in Kontact? Is it "out of the box"
with SuSE 10?
I have a Palm Tungsten E.
I have a Tungston C, and while I was able to eventually sync it with
kontact, it was a pain and IMHO not worth it. The pain part is
locating the correct USB /dev/ttyUSBx port! Please read this
carefully - it makes no sense (mainly because I can't write
coherently), but it's dead accurate; The port does not exist until
after you have pressed the sync button on the cradle and before the
timeout message shows up. You can try to sync on every USB port, but
until that condition is met, you'll get error messages indicating that
you're on the wrong port. Open the config panel to set the correct
USB port, set it for ttyUSB0, hit sync. if/when it doesn't connect,
cancel the sync on the palm, change the panel to ttyUSB1, and repeat.
Please note that if there's a correlation between the physical USB
port and the dev I've never found a clue, and believe I have looked.
After you finally get sync to work, you'll make the unpleasant
discovery that unless you use a very vanilla palm, you might as well
have not bothered. To make a long story short, the palm desktop and
all custom conduits can be made to work under windows running inside
VMware 5 and above (you'll have to remove the visor module from your
kernel), but not via wine - wine doesn't do USB ports.
If you're not confused, you're not trying hard enough.
