Hi all,

What are peoples experiences with getting their phones talking/syncing with linux (specifically fedora 10)? I got close last time with synce so I could browse the phone in the terminal but rapi never worked for me. Is it worth it? Has anyone found a good howto?

Thanks,

Jon

i have managed to get my Kaiser to sync with evolution on Ubuntu 8.10 using opensync.

theres a howto on the unbuntuforums.com site and also the syncce site. http://www.synce.org/moin/SynceInstallation/Fedora

Managed to sync to my Xubuntu with polaris, kaiser and touch into Evolution using the following:

i also recommend using 'Dolphin' file manager with the plugin kio-rapip, its gives you the ability to 'browse' your phone when its attached via usb using:

rapip://your phone name

Looks like two votes for ubuntu...I'm running fedora and I seem to stall with some kind of security message - either selinux or iptables I guess. I try every once in a while but eventually give up. Maybe I'll have another look.

Mandriva also seems to be quite phone friendly - according to linux format this month.
