Greetings.

I have a Mac, so i don't have a sync function.
I need to get my addressbook info off the SL-5500 Sharp Addressbook into some other format I can use on my computer.
In some recent reading it appears there is supposed to be an "addressbook.xml" file on the system, but try as I might, I can't find the bloody thing. huh.gif

Can someone direct me to where it might be?

Thanks in advance. smile.gif

Did you try

find / -name addressbook.xml

from the terminal? It's better to run it as root biggrin.gif

Thanks for the info.
Ran that entry as root and it dropped me back to # with no return.
Maybe I did something wrong?

Woops! Typed it in again, this time without the space between "/" & "-name" and got a return of "no such file or directory".
Now, my addressbook is slap full of contacts, so something's gotta be there.

You could broaden the search and add a wild card
#find / -name *.xml

cool.gif Hi Psion,

from reading your sig you appear to have Sharp Rom 3.10? Correct?

If so you don't have the original address book which used xml files. So you need to search the forums for information about the location and type of the 'new' dtm address book files.

An alternative would be to install the kdepimpi programs and import your address book and calendar files. The calendar files in kopi are ics format and the address book files are vcs format. You can locate and transfer these files quite easily, they work in the kdepim programs on the linux desktop also.

Cheers

Just did some searching and found a thread which mentioned zmacsync, seems to be a more simple answer to your problem, hope so.

Tux:

You are correct, I do have a 3.10 Sharp ROM.
I am running the Macsync, but it will only allow me to transfer back and forth, not really a "sync" solution. I ahven't been able to find anything that will allow me to sync properly with my Mac.

I will check further into the KDEpim programs and see if that saves the day.

Thanks for the info.
