I read in the FAQ that it's not possible to sync the Zaurus apps with Ximian Evoltion. There's a link there about some preliminary support though, but it's dead.

What do people use as PIM applications to sync the Zaurus with, on Linux?

Hi,
i dont know much about sharprom things. Using Opie, as it is distributed with openzaurus for example, there is no problem to sync with evolution. You just have to install multisync (also the ip things with ifconfig and routeadd). It works quite nice.
For Sharprom (and depended roms) I am always reading good voices about ko/PI. In this case please have a look at: http://pi-sync.net/
Cheers,
Sam

Teletubbie gave you the pi-sync link so I will give you the thread with all the information. I believe this is the longest thread on the board, thanks to zautrix and his great work!

Hard to miss this one with a search:

does this mean that I have to replace the original PIM applications, and use Ko/Pi? that's the only way forward?

OK, now I have a better picture. Say, I'd use Ko/Pi on the Zaurus, then I'd need an application on my desktop that is capable of syncing to/from .ics files. What applications are there that support this feature?

From what I see, Ximian Evoltion doesn't do this. It can only import .ics files.

There's a project called MultiSync, but that only supports the old Sharp PIM formats and the Opie PIM, but not Ko/Pi, see here

What other such applications are there? Is the only viable solution KOrganizer as a sync partner to Ko/Pi?

KO/Pi itself does the actual syncing with the other ics file.
You need an application, that stores its data in an ics file.

You can compile KO/Pi for your Linux desktop.
It does not need anything from KDE.
It just needs the Qt-lib.
And it has more features, less bugs and better usebility than the KDE Desktop KO.

No, this is not the only way. You can use the Opie-PIM applications on a Sharp-Rom and then use multisync with evolution.
The Opie-PIMs have to be installed from the sharp-feed of Opie, they will be linked to the original sharp-PIM-icons.
For me, this works great. You can install Ko/Pi in addition, because Ko/PI will import your Opie-data flawlessly. So if you think about switching to korganizer on the desktop from evolution, this would be the way :-)

Have fun,
Kathrin

I have to second this. I have been running the Opie-PIM calendar on my SL-6000 (and my 5500 before) and it works great. Although I have been using evolution-sync.pl to sync to Mozilla Calendar (which also uses ics files).

Good luck!

Opie Sharp ROM feed: http://opie.handhelds.org/feed/sharprom/latest/

I would have thought you'd have to install an FTP server that runs on port 4242 as well.

It would be nice if we could get KitchenSync working with the latest Sharp ROMs (i.e. without having to install any extra servers) and especially syncing with KO/Pi.

You can also sync with SFTP (port 22). I'm using wlan, so it's quite convenient. Remember that you probably will have to disable QCop!

I tried, but could not compile it. I downloaded korganizerPi.150.source.tar.gz from http://korganizer.kde.org/korganizer/download.html , unpacked it. Unfortunately there is no configure script, nor an INSTALL file in the tarball. I saw a Makefile, which references tmake. So I installed tmake as well, but it just doesn't work:

CODE
$ cd korgenizerPi.150

$ tmake

Usage:

   tmake [options] project-files

Options:

   -e expr    Evaluate expression, ignore template file

   -nodepend  Don't generate dependency information

   -o file    Write output to file

   -t file    Specify a template file

   -unix      Create output for Unix (auto detects)

   -v         Verbose/debug mode

   -win32     Create output for Win32 (auto detects)

$ make

for i in libical/src/libical libical/src/libicalss qtcompat microkde libkcal libkdepim korganizer kalarmd; do mkdir -p $i/obj/; done

cd qtcompat; tmake qtcompat.pro -o Makefile

tmake error: Template file tmake.conf not found

make: *** [qtcompat/Makefile] Error 1


I also tried replacing references to tmake in Makefile with make. But that fails as well, as it ties to do a make in libical/src/libical, but there's no Makefile in that directory:

CODE
$ make

for i in libical/src/libical libical/src/libicalss qtcompat microkde libkcal libkdepim korganizer kalarmd; do mkdir -p $i/obj/; done

Could someone who tried this please tell us which applications those are?

Thanks in advance.
