I've got some trouble getting synchronization to work between my iPAQ H2200 and my Kubuntu Linux system with KDE 3.4 (latest versions of all software)
The ultimate goal is to get synchronization of Calendar, tasks and contacts working between Kontact and the iPAQ.
The communication works okay, but I havent got a clue where to go from here.
I'm using RAKI and when I type synce-serial-start it works like a charm.
Okay, so i'm told on the Synce site that I need to install 'pocketpccommunication'.
- Tried to get it through apt-get/synaptic. Isn't there
- Tried to compile it. I cant even get ./configure to finish properly. (Error about cpp)
- Tried kitchensync, but there is no plugin for pocketpc
- Tried configuring it in raki, but get the error : "No synchronizer found for Appointment"
- Tried to configure it in Kontact, but also no connector available that makes sense..
I finally found out that your pocketpc has to be disconnected when you start dccm or vdccm. If it is already connected it won't be recognized. After you start dccm, then you connect your ipaq. After it is connected then you run synce-serial-start.
I had so many headaches getting this to connect before I found out that it can't be plugged in when dccm starts. After I found that out, it works like a charm every time.
I still don't know how to get raki to sync anything, though. There is no syncronizer found for anything. I can get multisync to work, though.
I just found out that the new version of raki doesn't support syncing yet except for Avantgo. They are working on integrating Kitchensync with it. Until then we are out of luck.
