Currently it only synchronizes with Kontact (KOrganizer, etc). However, I am working on a Evolution plugin right now as well. So it will have Evolution support very soon.

I've ended up with a slight change in plan:

Installed Pi-Sync, sources on SourceForge which uses modified KOrginizer etc.

It allows me to sync with Ko-Pi and Ka-Pi both on my Windows & Linux desktops and even with the Sharp PIM apps in the Z itself.

That's all I wanted ... if only Sharp would get their act together and sort out Qtopia Desktop for syncing with the new ROM under Linux, that would save me having 2 sets of PIM apps in my Z!

Thanks for all suggestions,
Gav.

It wont be a problem anymore after I get some plugins written. Would you all give me your opinion on first of all which syncing is most important to you Calendar or Address Book. Secondly which PIM suite would you rather be able to sync with Kontact (KDE progs), Evolution, or what?

Once, I get an idea I will start working on either the Address Book plugin or the Calendar plugin for my software hence you will be able to have one set of PIM apps installed on your Zaurus and be able to sync with both Windows and Linux.

I do need to know what you all out there want and view as the priority so I can plan and work on that first.

Hi,

I skimmed through your thread here. I have almost no experience with Linux, and cannot get my Z to sync or connect to my PC which runs Windows ME.
What's the difference between USB I/O and USB TCP/IP. I only have the USB SLvers3 WDM driver. Where can I get the USB TCP/IP Network Adapter if I want to try that?

I really don't want to use Outlook, as I've been able to avoid it so far. I'd like to use QTopia, but right now it looks impossible. I tried the Zaurus Synchronization Repository, but as I have no idea what you guys are talking about I'm not sure what I ought to download --- a source tallbar (???) or an rpm (????).

Any feedback would be helpful.

The USB TCP/IP Network Adapter does not exist. It is a virtual adapter. It is basically stating to use a driver that will make your USB connection act as a TCP/IP connection. This is what is used in Linux synchronizations. The USB I/O just uses a normal windows USB driver to perform synchronizations.

Well, Zaurus Synchronization Repository produces zync, a command line tool which allows synchronization of ones Zaurus with the Linux desktop. Zaurus Synchronization Repository also produces zync-gui, a graphical front end for the command line tool. Zync supports a broad number of Desktop PIM applications via a plug-in system. Hence, you must download the plug-ins which you would like to use. Personally I suggest you use the RPMs and do the intsall from the RPMs. After downloading the RPMs one can install them by doing the following:

# rpm -ivh filename.rpm

Note: The above must be performed as super user.
