[SOLVED]Nokia 6500c isn't detected

Postby thx1138 on Thu Jul 09, 2009 9:38 pm

I don't want to sync my cellphone with my PC. I want to transfer data like audio books. I can do that with Puppy, but Mint (and Ubuntu in the past) failed to recognize my cellphone.
I tried all the software around (gnokii, gMobileMedia, open.iforgotthename), but why should this software recognize something my Mint doesn't?

So, is there a way to force Mint (my edition: Fluxbox 6) to do what my Puppy does?

If you connect via USB with the phone connected run lsusb (l is a lower case L) and post here
It should be detected

Well at least we know that the phone is recognized by your system. However the USB ID was of no help - normally you get much better information searching for that.
I found an old aquaintance looking solutions - have you tried f-spot?
There's also the possibility to use obextool ( obextool --obexcmd "obexftp -u 1" )
Both are found in Synaptic

F-spot keeps crashing, i can't use it.
ObexTool does not recognize my cellphone, but i'm reading the documentation now....

EDIT:
No luck. There's no obexwrap.sh...

So, problem still unsolved.

I ran the lsusb comand with my puppy and (my first try with it; i'm a little bit frustrated with the new Mint Xfce... it isn't available :wink: ) Dream Linux Xfce (Live mode). The same results as i posted before. I don't know if this might be of help...
