    Hello @ all.

    i want sync my treo 600 with kontact.

    after my settings:
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 Dec 15 22:54 /dev/pilot -> /dev/usb/ttyUSB1

    kpilot finds my treo and says:
    KPilot is now configured to sync with Kontact.

    and now, if i say HOTSYNC,
    nothing is done.

    Can someone help me please?
    Thanks for help!

    Regards Mato

    1. does

    $ pilot-xfer --port /dev/pilot -l

    show you a list of files on your treo?

    If so, you are communicating across /dev/pilot to your treo
    If not, that is a problem, and answer the following question...

    You are experiencing the joys of the new udev system!

    Try the following:

    in /etc/udev/rules.d , create a new file called 10-visor.rules which contains

    KERNEL="ttyUSB1" SYMLINK="pilot"

    in /etc/udev/permissions.d, create a new file called 10-visor-permissions which contains



    Now try the 'pilot-link' command from above again.

    Check the permissons and group on /dev/usb/ttyUSB1. On my 9.2 installation all of the usb devices were in the group uucp (I think that was the group, I am not on my linux box right now). Once I added myself to that group, everything worked.
    Now I am trying to get my new 650 to sync properly. I got jpilot to work, but the first time I synced, it wiped out the hotsync ID on the 650, and caused a soft reset. I synced again and everything went back to normal. Now I need to get it working for Kontact.
