Palm Lifedrive Synchronization with Evolution


Hi everybody,

I am a Linux newbie (FC7) and I am trying several months now,very hard, to understand how to configure a Linux system.

After spending nights of frustrating hours, I finally got my wireless network card and my nVidia graphical card working... now I am struggling to synchronize my Palm Lifedrive with Evolution.

can anybody help me?

thanks

Does it have to be Evolution? I sync my Lifedrive using j-pilot and Wi-Fi, but I do appreciate this doesn't help with email.

well... I do like Evolution above the other apps because of its grouping of several part-applications (mail, contacts, calendar etc etc). I thought of my Lifedrive before diciding on which application I will use, but, I couldn't possibly imaging that there would be so many issues in the configuration stage.

yes, I do prefer Evolution for the moment, I have been using it sinds I switch to linux several months ago...

To be honest I have no idea whether you can sync with Evolution at all, but what I would say is that if it is set-up for Palm sync, from what I could make out you need to use WiFi not USB if that's of any help.
