Sync Axim WM2005 and MDV 2009

Recommended Posts

ok, I'm at a loss


I tried for 3 years to sync a palm lifedrive and decided that due to its connect/disconnect there was no way my wife would ever be able to do this on her own.


SO I bought 2 Dell Axim X51's both of which run WM2005 which supposedly has been installed and supported in MDV since 2008


and yet NOTHING I do gets me connected and synced. Although I use KDE I even installed GNOME and nothings working.


A GREAT deal of it SEEMS ti be revolving around 2 things.

1) I cant install KitchenSync. Every time I try to install task-wm5sync-kde I get an error message saying it cant install because of a missinmg kdepim-kitchensync, which apparently doesnt esist in 2010, and when i get the one from 2009 I get a whole series of incompatibilities.


2 Synce-TrayIcon keeps saying thees no connection even though lsusb shows the dell is there. Then when I try ans check he box to start dccm I am told that it "cant start vdccm" well that was installed years ago w/ 2008, but god knows where it is now.


As I say I installed gnome and it SEEMED like it was working for a minute, but then it doesnt actually import data (under GNOME) I have Traicon, MultiSync -gui and synce-panel-monitor all installed and none of them find the device


the device is told to look on USB and it DOES sync under XP


anyone with ideas, I am all about them. AWILLIAMSON was a HUGE help when I was working on 2008 but unfortunately I really cant see bugging him now that he firmly entrenched in Fedora.


The video that USED to be available for 2009 is gone,


please help. anyone,

ok through some stroke of perseverenve and switching to gnome i'm able to have the axim recognized. and items place in evolution go to the axim.


now how do i get the reverse?


nothing i put in the axim goes to the pc


and btw the contacts go from pc to axim, not the calendar, that claims to, but never shoews up
