    Oh man! I completely forgot to include installation of MultiSync! I've fixed that now. (I also found the mis-spelling of "group" and fixed, as well.)

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad to hear that someone else has found it useful!

    Now, if only we can get the Barry packages included in the Ubuntu repositories...

    theZoid, I have written a follow-up guide for synchronizing KDE-PIM with Google Calendar using the OpenSync google calendar plugin.

    Let me know if it works/helps!

    Chip, this is way off topic, but being a VirtualBox freak that I am, have you ever used Parallels Workstation for Linux? http://www.parallels.com/en/download/workstation/

    Please let me know; I'd love to know if it works. I've noticed that the OpenSync plugins aren't terribly well-documented at times, so I have no idea if it will even work.

    I'll have my follow-up post on using GCalDaemon posted sometime today (hopefully). It takes more to get set up, but is, IMHO, ultimately a better solution.

    Carbondale, eh? Small world!

    I haven't yet. One day, when I get the chance to build a linux box, I'm going to play around with more things - including some form of VM.

    Re: How to Sync your Blackberry in Linux

    Hey all...

    I've been doing some searching here and on Google and am now stumped. I'm attempting to sync an AT&T BB Pearl 8110 with a PC running Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron in Gnome. I have followed Chip's guide above to install Barry, etc. However, Barry doesn't seem to detect my Blackberry when it is connected. The PC seems to detect it all right, as I can see files on the microSD card in the device. Here is the output of lsusb with the pearl connected.

    Code:
    daniel@DarkCoffeeTower:~$ lsusb
    Bus 003 Device 003: ID 0fca:8004 Research In Motion, Ltd. 
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000  
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000  
    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 045e:009d Microsoft Corp. 
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    And the output of btool -t:

    Code:
    daniel@DarkCoffeeTower:~$ btool -t
    Blackberry devices found:
    No device selected
    However, when I connect an older, 7100 series BB to the same PC using the same cable, I get the following:

    Code:
    daniel@DarkCoffeeTower:~$ lsusb

    Based on apparent proper functionality, it appears that there is not a software problem up to this point...but I'm a relative noob at both Linux and Blackberry, so perhaps it's something very basic that I'm missing??

    Thanks,

    I would *strongly* recommend using the barry-devel mailing list for hardware-related issues. The list members have the best expertise in getting any particular hardware to work.

    I did some hunting on the barry-devel email archives, and from what I found, it appears that the current build may not have support for the Pearl (8004 device ID):


    Unfortunately right now, it looks like your only options are to compile from CVS, or wait until the next release.

    But, again, email the barry-devel list and see if anyone can offer any assistance.

    Re: How to Sync your Blackberry in Linux

    Not to throw a wrench in this thread, but has anyone tried Blackberry Desktop Manager in Wine? I have a feeling that the bluedtooth won't work, but sync might to some extend. I would do it, but I don't want to be the guinea pig yet. I've got too many projects on my hands.
