    Re: HOWTO: Pocket PC Syncing with Evolution

    I followed the HOWTO instructions, in my case I think it's just that I have to issue synce-serial-start when the handheld is placed in the cradle and shows the "connecting to network" popup for a few seconds. Try it, maybe it'll work

    Question Re: HOWTO: Pocket PC Syncing with Evolution

    After a system reboot it's no longer working, if I issue synce-serial-start when the "connecting to network" popup is up on the handheld, it connects for a moment, then the handheld displays "cannot start communications with the desktop computer. Reconnect your device. If the problem persists see Microsoft ActiveSync Help".

    Ooops. was forgetting to start DCCM before issuing synce-serial-start, working now.

    Lucky you
    Can you remind me what handheld you are using?
    I'm not sure exactly what script you ended up with. Can you post it again please as the last time I ran the original script it wrecked my installation.

    I'm using a Dell axim x50 (wm2003se) I installed the following packages here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=30936

    Then started dccm by typing dccm in terminal window, then synce-serial-start as soon as the popup for the "connecting to network" came up on the handheld and voila

    Re: HOWTO: Pocket PC Syncing with Evolution

    Well what do you know?
    I reinstalled again as you suggested (most files already present but a few new ones were added) and hit the enter button to run Synce just as the handheld dropped into its cradle and presto, I've got a connection.
    synce-pls lists the files on the iPAQ and I'm sitting here not daring to switch it off in case it never starts again

    I don't seem to have any icon showing in my gnome tray and I can't seem to find the ipaq in Nautillus. Should I be able to see my iPAQ files in a GUI or is it just a terminal job?

    Ahaaa - nice to see you've done some leg work for yourself and found some of the bits & pieces - good work, you're getting closer.

    Take a look at this thread...

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=149183

    rune lists two scripts. I've had success with the second one....the one following his statement...
    "OR my modified script that waits for dccm to start with X"

    I have found that you have to enter sudo synce-serial-start as soon as the popup starts. If you're using sudo for the first time then by the time you've entered your password it's too late and you get the dreaded RAPI error. Unplug and repeat and it seems to work ok.

    Now then, typing Multisync gets the Multisync to start and I even get the tray icon now though nothing wants to synchronise yet - more research needed

    But first of all I'd like to browse my iPAQ. I don't have anything showing in my Places list. Can someone shed some light on this for me?

    Re: HOWTO: Pocket PC Syncing with Evolution

    Teejcee, I tried both scripts, no connection. The only way I get a connection is if I issue synce-serial-start as soon as the "connecting to network" popup appears on the handheld.

    Thanks!
