    Blackberry sync problem

    Trying to set up sync between Blackberry Curve and Evolution.

    Installed Barry and upgraded opensync per:
    http://celeduc.blogspot.com/2007/10/...ntu-gutsy.html

    Curve connects fine, charges, and barrybackup seems to work.

    Set up msynctool per:
    http://www.linux.com/feature/123251

    Tried to configure the barry-sync plugin:
    msynctool --configure Blackberry 1

    get an error message: unable to open file usr/share/opensync/defaults/barry-sync

    Tried going into msynctool-gui and sync, but no go.

    Any thoughts?

    does the file usr/share/opensync/defaults/barry-sync exist? does running the command with sudo help? (not that doing so would be a permanent fix but it could rule out a permission error)

    File does not exist.

    Setting up with sudo makes no difference.

    Create an empty file "barry-sync". It is called when using --configure, but since there is no information, it's useless.

    Both multisync-gui and msynctool --showgroup indicates that barry-sync still needs to be configured.

    I have my BB Curve synchronizing with KDE-PIM. Here are step-by-step instructions.

    I noticed that the synch groups and synch group member configuration files are found not in usr/share/opensync but rather in ~/.opensync-0.22

    I'm not sure why msynctools would be looking in the wrong directory, though.
