    NOKIA PC Suite

    Well, i,ve completely gone bonkers over linux.... ubuntu rather.... for the degree of openness it provides, unlike the monopoly OS
    Anyways, i had this query whether i can connect my Nokia N73 for transferring files??? (Not in mass storage mode). Also, N70 which does not have the mass storage mode; is a complete stranger with ubuntu....
    Please help.... With this, the last doubt with ubuntu is killed....... FOREVER

    I'm testing out wammu and gmobilemedia for my SE K810i. Both are in synaptic. They end up in the accessories menu.

    Doesn't the icon just appear on the desktop like a removable disk.
    It does with my Sony Ericsson K800i.
    I don't require any software.

    Re: NOKIA PC Suite

    Hi, I just spent a couple of hours getting it working on my Nokia N70. There are a few guides to get this right, but one of them has a few errors (probably because it refers to an older version of Ubuntu; Feisty Fawn), and the otehr does not tell you how to use the Java-based graphical frontend. So I've put both of these together.

    BEFORE YOU DO ANY OF THIS, CONNECT YOUR NOKIA PHONE USING AN USB CABLE.

    Step 1: Install obexftp.
    Open a terminal and type:
    sudo apt-get install obexftp openobex-apps
    Step 2: Get the obexftp frontend.
    wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/obe...8&big_mirror=0
    sudo dpkg -i obexftp-frontend-0.6.6.deb
    Remove the .deb file using rm when you're done installing it using dpkg.

    Step 3: Find the product ID and vendor ID of your Nokia phone.

    In the terminal you have opened, type:
    lsusb | grep Nokia
    You should get an output line that goes something like this:

    Bus 004 Device 020: ID 0421:043a Nokia Mobile Phones N70 USB Phone Parent

    I get Nokia N70 because my mobile phone is, well, a Nokia N70.

    In my case, 0421 is the vendor ID, and 043a is the product ID (obtained from the string 0421:043a).

    Note: If you don't get anything from this, try typing

    lsusb
    and looking for a line with Nokia.

    Step 4: Add permissions to udev, so that this device can be mounted using obexftp.

    In the terminal, type:
    sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/40-permissions.rules
    Add the line to the end of this file:

    BUS=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="VendorID", SYSFS{idProduct}=="ProductID", GROUP="plugdev", USER="yourUserName"

    Change VendorID and ProductID in this file to refer to the values you determined in step 3, and yourUserName to your user ID (in my case, siddhu)

    Step 5: Now, let's run a quick test to make sure we've got it setup all right. In the terminal, type:

    obex_test -u
    You should get output that looks something like this.

    Interface 0: Nokia Nokia N70 SYNCML-SYNC
    Interface 1: Nokia Nokia N70 PC Suite Services

    Step 6: Let's get syncing!! In the terminal, type:

    obexftp-frontend &
    This should open up to show you a configuration dialog. If it doesn't, click Options->Configuration.

    Specify the ObexFTP path if it's not already been specified. It should be /usr/bin/obexftp if you followed the instructions described herein. If you want to find out what your ObexFTP path is, type in terminal:

    which obexftp
    and copy the output into the textbox in the ObexFTP Front-end program.

    In the ``Advanced Options'' group box, deselect ``Device Info Fetching''

    Then, look below at the ``Device Information'' Group box. In the ``Connection type'' drop down box, select 'USB'. Enter 1 into the ``Connection line'' text box.

    Click on the ``Test'' button. You should get a little dialog box that says ``Connection Established''.

    YAY!!!

    Click `OK'. The config dialog will disappear. Now, click on the ``Device'' menu and click ``Query root files'' (or alternately, press F5). You should see the folders on your phone.

    YAY (again)!!!

    Does this allow you to install games/applications onto your phone? Or backup your phone book etc? Thanks, good guide. Im gonna try it with my nokia 6230i when i get a chance.

    Thanks for that, worked beautifully!! I can browse all the files on my n70 and its memory card.

    Now I've just got to find a way to sync the calendar...any ideas?

    I don't have a usb data cable for my Nokia E61i, all I have is a bluetooth dongle. In this case I cannot use the "lsusb" command. What terminal command should I use in order to get my phone's product and vendor ID?

    I had the same problem until I realized I had to execute obexftp-frontend with root priviledges.
