    Exclamation installing barry step by step in ubuntu 12.04

    I'm trying to setup or install barry on ubuntu 12.04 laptop to be able to sync my blackberry to thunderbird or evolution as I would to do on windows, but I'm struggling to do so. I really need a step by step way to setup or install barry so that I can sync my barry to thunderbird or evolution 100% and proper. I've tried looking on the internet, but can't find proper step by step in installing barry. I've tried linberry, but doesn't have the feature in syncing your calendar, contacts and so on to thunderbird or evolution. From what I understand on sites on the internet, that this quite possible. Please assist me in this.

    I hate bumping threads, but I'm having the same problem and " sudo apt-get install barrydesktop" just doesn't work:

    Code:
    $  sudo apt-get install barrydesktop
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Package barrydesktop is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    
    E: Package 'barrydesktop' has no installation candidate
    Now I have been doing some deb installing, so maybe not everyone will get this exact message, but the fact is barrydesktop no longer seems to be available in the repositories.

    I just ran across this exact same thing.

    Edit your /etc/apt/sources/list and remove the line that points to,

    http://download.barry.netdirect.ca

    Add the following,

    deb http://ftp.ca.debian.org/debian sid main

    From terminal run,

    sudo apt-get update

    Then,

    sudo apt-get install barrydesktop


    Hope this helps!

    One thing wrong in 12.04.

    /etc/apt/sources/list should read /etc/apt/sources.list

    For the code line averse, it is easy to click Applications>System Tools>Administration>Update Manager>Settings>Other Sources

    I checked the site and followed instructions:

    http://www.netdirect.ca/software/pac...talldebian.php

    I added:

    deb http://download.barry.netdirect.ca/barry-latest/ ubuntu1204 main

    Then, I did these too:
    gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-key B6C2250E
    gpg --armor --export B6C2250E > barry.key
    sudo apt-key add barry.key


    I ran the update:
    sudo apt-get update

    Well, this line DOES NOT WORK, "unable to locate,"
    sudo apt-get install barrydesktop
