Hey all, i am messing around with trying to get my wm6 pda to talk to evolution. In order to do this i have used myfunambol portal so that if there are any changes my mobile phone will see them This also works pretty well for when i come to upgrade my phone. I will always have a compatible contact list and calendar to transfer to my new phone.
ok so just to clarify the situation:
wm6 pda --->myfunambol<----syncevolution<------evolution
i have installed evolution from the mint software portal, and syncevolution according to these
instructions. Please note that the compatibility list states that version 2.12 is compatible with hardy heron and hence it should be ok for elyssa. Also, just in case anyone is looking at this think i should do this, the path to the example configs is /usr/share/doc/syncevolution.
Once installed it is important to note that the config scripts only enable the address book for myfunambol. This is due to compatibility issues that i believe are still continuing to be resolved, if you are interested see here
. Suffice to say that the calendar compatibility and afew other features is patchy. Anyway i persevered with the config scripts and managed to get the calendar and address book to sync.
What i was wondering was how i can get sync evolution to run with evolution? Syncevolution is a command line interface and i am not sure if both evolution and syncevolution can be run in parallel or i need a cronjob or have syncevolution run when i have an internet connection on boot? Should i just create a launcher in mint menu and go from there?
Has anyone any reccomendations on how to approach this?
