    Re: HOWTO: Install BitPim

    i followed the instructions on how to add a usb port but bitpim doesn't automatically detect my phone, i have to manually set it and for some reason there is another samsung port listed but it says its not available. and also when i transfer a ring tone to my phone it transfers fine but when the ring tone is in my phone it doesn't play

    Doesn't work with the plain-vanilla Razr V3 (Cingular's original Razr). Tried V3c V3cm and 710 but no luck. You can plug it into the USB port and use it as a phone charger.
    Why can't life have a sudo apt-get install -f command?

    I sent you a PM.

    Here is the solution for others. This might just be an issue with SAMSUNG phones, but if you run lsmod and your machine is loading a module/driver named "visor" (when you connect your usb cable) you need to edit /etc/modprobe.conf and add the line "blacklist visor".

    You might need to create modprobe.conf - don't worry about messing anything up by doing this.

    Then, assuming you have followed all of the instructions in this thread so far I am going to add this:

    In bitpim, manually select /dev/ttyACM0 as the port for your phone. I have a Samsung a640 but I selected a620 in order to add music (this posted on the bitpim.org site).

    That should work.

    Oh, also I always have to "sudo bitpim" in order for it to load correctly...also try this if you are having problems.

    Everyone, please if you have your device working with bitpim, post here and I will make changes to the original post so that others like you won't have to spend so much time browsing through the thread.

    Re: HOWTO: Install BitPim

    I can start bitpim with my e815 plugged in and it will say No phone recognized but I can click on file system and browse the file system.
    Can someone help me get it to work with all the features?
    Thanks.

    Re: HOWTO: Install BitPim

    oops! I ran "sudo usermod -G bitpim -a your_user_name" without the -a and now when I go to users and groups I get an error:
    Failed to run users-admin.

    Help please! =\

    Re: HOWTO: Install BitPim

    Code:
    # apt-get install alien
    Then convert it (this needs to be run as root) and then install the resulting deb:
    Code:
    # alien bitpim*.rpm
    # dpkg -i bitpim*.deb
    Then we need to create a symlink due to bitpim's use of libbtiff version 3:
    Code:
    # cd /usr/lib
    #ln -s /usr/lib/libtiff.so.4 /usr/lib/libtiff.so.3
    If needed
    Code:
    # apt-get install libstdc++5
    Must run as root or USB device will be unavailable

    Set to auto detect. VX9900 USB cable.
