This is a howto (provided by Nailor) shows how to sync Nokia E-series phone (Symbian 9.1, Series60 3rd edition) with Gnome Evolution in Ubuntu Edgy Eft (6.10) and Feisty Fawn (7.04). This has been tested with Nokia E50. Information on how to sync Nokia E65 is available here. Kubuntu users may be interested in this.
1. Add required repositories:
2. Install required software
3. Configure msynctool
You can configure opensync via a graphical interface using multisync-qad (using similiar settings as below) or you can use command line. Guide below is for command line. Note, that the command line is reported not to work flawlessly on Feisty. You'll bet better results with GUI
Add a new group of preferred name (I'll be using nokia in this example):
msynctool --addgroup nokia
Add plugins to group. If you get errors in this face, they are propably due to missing plugins so check you've installed all required plugins.
msynctool --addmember nokia evo2-sync
msynctool --addmember nokia syncml-obex-client
Next is the 'trickiest' part. Installed plugins need to be configured. First, you have to find your phone’s MAC. Use hcitool to do that:
It should return something like:
Now, configure the syncml-obex-client:
msynctool --configure nokia 2
Replace the context of the configuration (should be open in separate editor after running previous command) with the following XML:
Where bluetooth_address is your phone’s MAC address you just discovered.
After configuring the syncml-obex-client it’s time to configure evo2-sync. Open configuration file with command:
msynctool --configure nokia 1
And modify it to look like:
Replace USERNAME with your username.
Edgy note: With the latest update from jahn repositories, this works with defaults. You can configure Calendar as calendar_db to syncml-obex-client setup to make calendar syncing work
You should be good to go now, so you should try synchronizing:
msynctool --sync nokia
