    could you help me.

    Ivan

    Sorry for my bad english

    Try running synce-serial-matchmaker as yourself, not as root (do not use sudo). That should work. Let us know how you make out.

    Re: HOWTO: Pocket PC Syncing with Evolution

    Just so everyone knows in Edgy Eft you can get this working. I followed the instructions on the first page. I have made my own little script and it is working with my ipaq 6315 but I'm not sure if it would work for others. Its not very complicated but I'm sure it doesn't work everytime

    Code:
    #/bin/bash
    
    killall -HUP dccm
    dccm -p 5373
    sleep 2
    gksu synce-serial-start
    sleep 2
    #synce-pstatus
    multisync &

    Someone asked how someone could browse the device through a gui interface and I would like to know also.

    Thanks
    Blake

    @blake

    try this, works for me (ubuntu dapper)
    supposing you have synce installed and working.

    download; http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/s...6.rpm?download

    sudo apt-get install alien
    sudo alien -i synce-gnomevfs-0.9.0-1.i386.rpm

    synce-in-computer-folder install
    synce-in-computer-folder connect

    And it will appear in your filebrowser.

    Re: HOWTO: Pocket PC Syncing with Evolution

    and for all those that get that d*rn:
    Unable to initialize RAPI: An unspecified failure has occurred
    message:

    Try this:

    in terminal:
    # lsusb

    this must give a line about your pocketpc like this:

    Bus 002 Device 013: ID 03f0:1016 Hewlett-Packard Jornada 548 / iPAQ HW6515 Pocket PC

    type:

    # sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/synce

    and paste this in there: (read the codes form ID above for your device)
    (not the << and >>)
    >>>
    options ipaq vendor=03f0 product=1016
    <<<

    Save

    Reconnect the pocketpc

    type:

    # dccm
    # sudo synce-serial-config ttyUSB0
    # sudo synce-serial-start

    Test connection:
    # synce-pstatus

    if it works:

    # sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/10-ipaq.rules
    and paste this:

    >>>
    # udev rules file for SynCE
    BUS!="usb", ACTION!="add", KERNEL!="ttyUSB*", GOTO="synce_rules_end"
    # Establish the connection
    RUN+="/usr/bin/synce-serial-start"
    LABEL="synce_rules_end"
    <<<<
    Save

    Restart device:

    # sudo /etc/init.d/udev restart

    connecten the thing:
    # synce-matchmaker

    And now my pocketpc is talking to multisync, it sees the changes on the fly when i change something in my pocketpc. (start multisync from console to read the messages)
    Still nothing happens in Evolution , but still figuring that out.

    Anyone?

    Re: HOWTO: Pocket PC Syncing with Evolution

    Thank you! The main part of your message is

    >>>
    # udev rules file for SynCE
    BUS!="usb", ACTION!="add", KERNEL!="ttyUSB*", GOTO="synce_rules_end"
    # Establish the connection
    RUN+="/usr/bin/synce-serial-start"
    LABEL="synce_rules_end"
    <<<<



    And i think that the bold text is unnecessary

    Test connection:
    # synce-pstatus

    if it works:

    # sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/10-ipaq.rules
    and paste this:

    Re: HOWTO: Pocket PC Syncing with Evolution

    I have done everything the tutorial on first page says. When i run "sudo synce-serial-start" my iPaq connects (it's shows the dialog on ipaq that it's connecting and that the user is authenticated) to Ubuntu (edgy) but after few seconds the icon showing that the ipaq (right-bottom of the screen on ipaq) is syncronized with pc dissappears. What's wrong?

    Re: HOWTO: Pocket PC Syncing with Evolution

    I get the following message when I type:

    synce-matchmaker create INDEX

    I get:

    [rapi_context_connect:97] Failed to get connection info
    [main:62] Failed to initialize RAPI

    Any ideas what step I've missed?

    Re: HOWTO: Pocket PC Syncing with Evolution

    I am attemptint to sync a ipaq pocket pc to ubuntu 2.6.15.27.368. I have followed the suggestions in SynCE webpage. I have this problem:

    synce-serial-start was unable to find the file /etc/ppp/peers/synce-device:

    Please run the synce-serial-config tool to create this file before running this
    script again.


    Then I type:

    synce-serial-config

    and I get this:

    Syntax for synce-serial-config:

    synce-serial-config serial-device [local-ip-address:remote-ip_address [DNS-server-name]]

    The serial-device specifies the name of your serial port device.

    These are the port names on Linux:

    ttyS0 The first serial port
    ttyS1 The second serial port
    ...

    You can also connect via an infrared connection (IrDA). This requires
    that you already have irattach running.

    ircomm0 The first IrDA communication port

    Please send corrections and updates to the above information to the
    SynCE development mailing list: synce-devel@lists.sourceforge.net

    If you do not provide the local_ip_address:remote_ip_address parameter,
    synce-serial-config will use 192.168.131.102:192.168.131.201.

    If you want to specify these addresses yourself, you may want to read
    about the same option on the man page for pppd.


    Any suggestions where I go from here?

    Re: HOWTO: Pocket PC Syncing with Evolution

    First, I have managed to synce my iPAQ1940 with Dapper, having some problems with RAPI-failure, but solved them. Later, I did bluetooth, and everything is working perfectly, but lost synce-serial commands. Does anyone knows why? Is it the case that you cannot use both of them: USB and bluetooth?

    Sincerely,
    Petar Milin
