    Re: HOWTO: Pocket PC Syncing with Evolution

    OK, I got it working. Everything works fine except for Avantgo, I just don't have the time at the moment to follow the tutorial to change the iptables settings, but it looks pretty simple.

    From the synCE sourceforge page, I got tripped up on the following section
    The Driver entry

    Second you look at the Driver entry. Read more in the apropriate section below.

    Driver=ipaq or Driver=usbserial Your kernel driver recognized your device, good!

    Driver=(none) Your kernel driver did not recognize your device. You need to perform some special configuration:

    1.

    Only if your Linux kernel is 2.6.10 or later: please send a mail to synce-devel@lists.sourceforge.net and tell us...
    1. your kernel version
    2. brand and model of your device
    3. vendor/product USB IDs for your device (see Vendor= and ProdID=)
    2.

    Follow the instructions in Appendix A to add options like this, but replace the red digits with the corresponding ones from the output from the command you ran earlier:

    vendor=0x049f product=0x0003

    3.

    If you have the file /etc/rc.local, open it with a text editor and add this line in order to have things working directly next time you restart your computer:

    /sbin/modprobe ipaq

    4.

    Now run these commands to reload the ipaq module:

    rmmod ipaq
    modprobe ipaq
    I misunderstood the red section (it is not highlighted on their page) and it really confused me

    After re-reading it a few times, I realized that you do NOT need to configure the vendor and product settings if the driver is showing Driver=ipaq.

    I undid the changes that followed for setting the vendor ID etc. and re-tried the setup.

    I ran synce-kde and got a message that dccm was already running. I killed all dccm and vdccm and then went on with their instructions. It failed to work.

    I then changed over to gnome and ran the connection process from the command line and it worked like a charm

    Big thumbs up and thank you to the SynCE team for a great feature,=D> but a little thumbs down for the slightly confusing setup tutorial . I recommend highlighting the fact that if the driver is detected correctly, the rest of the steps in that section should be skipped.

    I really hope this post helps somebody. This had been driving me nuts.

    I ran into this too.

    Edit your Multisync pair, and of the Evolution side, choose options. You'll see that by default, the options are not to sync anything: Calendar, Contacts, nor Tasks. Turn on the choices you want to sync.

    No just that, but I think you have to tell it to sync with your "Personal" calendar etc. I don't know if that is true for everyone, but Mine appeared to be syncing, but not with my personal calendar. Since I ONLY have a personal calendar on this machine, I don't know where else it could have been trying to sync.

    I,ve been trying for a long time to connect my iPAQ hx4700 to Ubuntu and came up with all the problems ever listed on these forums.

    Can you write a step-by-step guide as to how you managed to get your device connected?

    Did you ever manage to fix this problem i am running a dell axim x50 and i am getting the same error.
