Hi Riccardo,

thanks for the reply. Last night I finally managed to compile akunambol 
0.2.2. Perhaps my problem was that I tried to install Ubuntu packages 
first on my Debian system and when 0.2.2 failed resorted to source 
packages from https://launchpad.net/~akunambol/+archive/ppa
instead of getting the SDK from the funambol page for libfunambol. With 
the latter I managed to get akunambol working, a littlee HowTo is below, 
please feel free to put it in the Blog, my name doesn't have to be 

One problem remains but I am not sure whether this is reproducible - I 
have some \ backslashes or even \n in some entries of the synced 
addressbooks (i.e., in one iPhone but only in one of two KDE desktops). 
I am still experimenting and the line breaks do not appear everywhere. 
Please let me know if this is an unknown problem so far and I will try 
to reproduce it.

Thanks again so far,


PS will akunambol become part of KDE-PIM?
