Welcome to LQ!
Please follow, and read this link:

Then re-post, with capitals, and respelling, (can you find the <SHIFT> key?), and punctuation?

It the manufacturer doesn't offer software for linux, then you are out of luck.

However, you can always try to run the windows version using wine (see winehq.org). Also, depending on what you are exactly trying to do, and how your cell phone handles the things, you might be able to just operate on it using stardard tools if linux can see it as an external storage device.

EDIT: Next time, please, as suggested above by another person, try to write in a cleaner way. It will help us to help you.

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

I would like to add that your subject line is not really descriptive as to your problem. In the future you should try to provide a description of your problem in the subject topic title.

You will get better response(s) if you try to include that in the title. Look at the next two links;
