Syncing my Sony Ericsson T610


Hi,
I'm looking for help syncing my T610 with Kontact or Korganizer or Kaddressbook. I've managed to get kbluetoothd working - so I can push and pull images, sounds and themes between my phone and my linux machine running fedora 2 and KDE 3.2 - I can't however sync my phones addressbook and calendar with my computer - can anyone help. I've tried Kandy but I guess it doesn't/can't see my bluetooth usb dongle as a serial device. I've also come across references to KitchenSync which apparently comes with KDE 3.2 but I can't find it. I'm a non-root user, but have a very understanding sys. admin'or. So if anyone can help me out - please in point form... just kidding. Thanks guys. Sync me please...

Johnnycakes.

KDE has a utility called KMobileTools ( http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=15259 ) but I could not make it to work on my machine (though I did not really try hard enough). The reason of not-trying-hard-enough was that there is Evolution and MultiSync. MultiSync (which is a very powerful syncing tool) has a plug-in that works perfectly fine with my t610 though I can use only Evolution-1.4 (1.5 is better but it is not an official release yet). Let me know (and the community too) about your KMobileTools experience. Here are the other links, just in case you need them.
http://multisync.sourceforge.net/
http://www.novell.com/products/evolution/

and here are some more links related to T610 and bluetooth

Good luck!

OK what I've got installed is evolution 2.0.2
Fedora 3
multisync 0.82

multisync wants plugins (I'm guessing evolution and irmc)
attempting to install these plugins produces the following messages

andy@localhost multisync]$ rpm -i multisync-evolution-0.82-2.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libcal-client.so.0 is needed by multisync-evolution-0.82-2.i386
libcal-util.so.0 is needed by multisync-evolution-0.82-2.i386
libebook.so.0 is needed by multisync-evolution-0.82-2.i386
libename.so.0 is needed by multisync-evolution-0.82-2.i386
libgal-2.0.so.5 is needed by multisync-evolution-0.82-2.i386

libical-evolution.so.0 is needed by multisync-evolution-0.82-2.i386
libversit.so.0 is needed by multisync-evolution-0.82-2.i386
libwombat.so.0 is needed by multisync-evolution-0.82-2.i386

[andy@localhost multisync]$ rpm -i multisync-irmc-0.82-2.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libopenobex-1.0.so.0 is needed by multisync-irmc-0.82-2.i386
[andy@localhost multisync]$

Any help would be gratefully appreciated

cheers

Andy

It is clear that multisync-evolution-0.82-2.i386 needs all those libs to be installed (i.e. libcal-client.so.0, libcal-util.so.0, libebook.so.0 and so on...). These libs are (probably) a part of different (from what you have) evolution version multisync-evolution-0.82-2.i386 was compiled agains which. I would suggest looking for rpms for your particular distro or just compile the plug-in by yourself.

I have uninstalled evolution 2 and (tried) to fo back to evolution 1.4. Apparantly this needs version 3.1.17 of dblib which I think I have managed to install correctly (is there a way to check this). Attempting to install evolution 1.4 gives the following output (version 3.1.17 of ldblib has no lib dir but there is ia libdb_java dir)

[andy@localhost evolution-1.4.6]$ ./configure --prefix=/opt/gnome --with-db3-includes=/home/andy/Applications/db/db3.1.17/include --with-db3-libs=/home/andy/Applications/db/db3.1.17/libdb_java

Sorry, pal, can't help you with that. But if I were you, I would not downgrade to the previous Evolution version, since it may rely on older libs comparing to what your newer Gnome might have, and downgrading those may conflict with Gnome.

cheers. I'm going to have a look at this kde-bluetooth.sourceforge.net since I tend to use this more than gnome

I tried kmobiletools recently and it seems to be working with my t610 although I couldn't send an SMS (I can save it on the phone but the encoding seems to be screwed). Also, they say that the syncing can easily be done with Kitchensync, but I did not figure out how to do that yet. If you have some success, it would be nice to hear from you and find out how you managed to sync your KDE addressbook with T610 via Kitchensync.
