The hope is that the syncevolution.org
web site answers that part.
doubt there's nether enough information, so feel free to ask and enhance
the documentation - there's a Wiki now.
Well, OK. I'm not really sure at this point just how well
Syncevolution actually serves me. What I mainly want to sync are a
Nokia N85 phone (seems like a lucky choice :) and two Linux PCs with
Thunderbird and Lightning for calendar, contacts and todos. I'm not
really using Evolution, except it's the only program I know of for
Linux that supports memos, so that much is fine. The memo support is
great by the way, I've been hoping to have an easy way to share small
data among my different devices. OBEX push over bluetooth isn't
I'd also like to sync my Nokia N810, for which at least an old version
of Syncevolution is available. Maybe also my old Powerbook on
occasion, but it may be enough to use the iSync tool Nokia provides.
Syncing my Fedora laptop and Debian desktop directly with the N85 has
worked great, but there's already an annoying problem with that. For
example, if I remove a contact from the phone and sync with my
desktop, everything is fine, the contact is deleted on the desktop
too. If I then go sync the phone with my laptop, the contact I just
deleted gets put back on the phone while what I really want is for it
to disappear from the laptop as well. Maybe it's obvious, but I don't
know how to fix that?
I have also started looking into running my own Funambol server, but
I'm not sure if that's what I need to do or if Syncevolution alone
would suffice? Well, the server is installed, but not configured yet.
