    msynctool missing syncml-obex-client plugin

    I'd like to get sync between evolution and nokia E51 running. Following the instructions given in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/No...ncing/Opensync.

    Therefore I need the plugin syncml-obex-client, but I cannot get it. I guess the problem is the that the package opensync-plugin-syncml cannot be downloaded.

    Is it not part in ubuntu 10.04 anymore?

    Yes, me too.

    syncml-obex-client

    is missing from --listplugins

    and when I run msynctool --sync nok

    I get "group is locked"

    loving 10.04 otherwise!

    Re: msynctool missing syncml-obex-client plugin

    It seems the clever people are talking about it here

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ml/+bug/524938

    but this is too much for me...

    can someone shout when there is a set of instructions for how to get it working again?

    thanks!

    Re: msynctool missing syncml-obex-client plugin

    I'm one of the people posting on the bug report and I've been asked to clarify things a bit further here. I hope I'm successful.



    Opensync-plugin-syncml and two of its dependencies were removed from the Lucid repositories because the dependencies are considered to be obsolete.

    Fortunately, we can still install the dependencies by hand.

    Three files are involved: libsoup2.2, libsyncml0 and opensync-plugin-syncml.

    Go to http://packages.ubuntu.com About 1/3 of the way down the page, there is a section called "Search Package Directories".

    Set the distribution to "Karmic" and section to "any"

    Then search for "libsoup2.2". You'll get three results. The first one is the one we want. Click on the "karmic" link and it will take you to a page where you can download it (see panel at the bottom of the page). Choose your architecture and then your mirror.

    Do the same for libsyncml and opensync-plugin-syncml.

    You should end up with these three .deb files.

    libsoup2.2-8_2.2.105-4ubuntu1_i386.deb
    libsyncml0_0.4.6-3build1_i386.deb
    opensync-plugin-syncml_0.22-2_i386.deb
    Double-click on each one in turn, in the order shown. That will launch the manual installer. It will want to install other packages as well, which you will need to allow it to do.

    That's it. Now you can set up your system to use syncml.



    If the sync group is locked, you probably have a permissions problem with USB devices.

    That can be fixed by adding a rule in /etc/udev/rules.d
    Instructions for doing that are here, in the USB section. Sorry, there doesn't seem to be any way around this other than command line.

    My rules file is a little different from what that page shows, and I'll post it here to give you an idea. Obviously, you'll need to change the idProduct to match your phone.

    Code:
    BUS=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0421", SYSFS{idProduct}=="002f", MODE="0660", GROUP="dialout"
    In Lucid, you'll get a rude error message when it boots up (if you are booting with "quiet" off) but it still works - on my machine, anyway.

    Here's another useful link for setting up sync with Nokia Symbian 60 v3 phones: http://myrtti.fi/blog/2009/03/25/how...calendarnotes/ OK, it's for google calendar, but the bit for configuring the syncml plugin is very useful.

    You can install multisync0.90 if you want to use a GUI for this.



    I've found that the sync process isn't all that robust. That's a nice way of saying that errors easily occur. I'm using a Nokia 6120 classic phone and the sunbird-sync plugin for Lightning (Thunderbird extension).

    I won't go into detail about that yet, because you people may not get the same errors - different phones and PIM software. I can post that later if it's wanted.
    Please, people, remember to BACKUP before you install that new system. Same if you're upgrading.

    Re: msynctool missing syncml-obex-client plugin

    Thank You so much for all your help.

    downloaded the three files as you said.

    libsoup2.2 installed no problems.

    but libsyncml-dev_0.4.6-3build1_i386.deb won't install -
    Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libsyncml0 (= 0.4.6-3build1)

    and, consequently, neither will opensync-plugin-syncml_0.22-2_i386.deb
    Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libsyncml0 (>= 0.4.5)

    Have I done something wrong?

    Let me know if you get a moment...

    Cheers!

    You need libsyncml0_0.4.6-3build1_i386.deb from the same source.

    Unless you are going to be compiling stuff, you don't need the libsyncml-dev file at all.
    Please, people, remember to BACKUP before you install that new system. Same if you're upgrading.

    Re: msynctool missing syncml-obex-client plugin

    when you say I need it from the same source what do you mean? sorry...

    I got all three files from the same mirror...

    sorry, I'm rubbish.

    Re: msynctool missing syncml-obex-client plugin

    Maybe I'm not expressing myself very clearly.

    You need to get libsyncml0_0.4.6-3build1_i386.deb from http://packages.ubuntu.com, by searching for "libsyncml0" in the Karmic distribution, section "any".

    Only one choice should come up.

    It doesn't matter which mirror you get it from; it's exactly the same file.

    Re: msynctool missing syncml-obex-client plugin

    my fault!

    silly silly silly!

    all three packages installed. great.

    now when I run msynctool I get the following error
    Member 2 of type syncml-obex-client had an error while connecting: Bluetooth connect error

    and also when I run hcitool scan
    Device is not available: No such device

    so it appears the bluetooth has gone away...

    continual thanks, how are things in NZ, I spent a couple of weeks in Wellington in 2006 - loved it...
