[kdepim-users] Palm Treo 770

Can't even find "/dev/pilot" in my files...

As an addendum: I have read all the forums on which this issue has been raised; various people have partial suggestions, none of which work. I have sent my machine AND my Palm to an ASUS-certified technician, and even he couldn't get the sync to work. I have read that some have moved to j pilot out of frustration. But that won't work, as all my material is on KDE. I was even told that the issue will NEVER get resolved because there is not the corporate will to do so, since Palm is on the out. Not a good enough answer for me. We need someone who takes the issue seriously and works out a detailed instruction on how to perform a hot sync reliably.

       I have been trying to sync this since April.  The first sync I did
    went okay but now, I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 and cannot get this to sync.
    Any ideas?  I have installed Evolution and am trying to work through it
    as well as trying k pilot.  I need some help.  I realize that what I am
    doing is more than likely stupid but please help me anyway.  When I use
    the Config wizard I get to about 31% and it quits.  Thanks -BOB-

    6:53:28 Cannot open Pilot port "/dev/pilot".
    17:12:42 Pilot device /dev/pilot is not read-write.
    17:12:42 Next HotSync will be: Full Synchronization. Please press the
    HotSync button.

  First, what is a Palm 770? Does that even exist?

  Second, did you look at the permissions on /dev/pilot? Do you have read/write access to it? That'd be the next thing to look into. =:)
