I'm running Linux Mint 6 (derived from the more popular Ubuntu 8.10), and I was wondering if there is any software that allows me to manage my blackberry. The mounted folder really does no help, and Wine runs the DM poorly.

Any ideas, or am I SOL?

you can use barry (an app for bb manage on linux), but only for backups, charge, and sync.

I use VMWare workstation 6.5 with an XP image which has DM installed and allows for the tunneling of the USB port for device upgrades etc..

Have you posted your experience with DM and Wine on the Wine forums? With the growing popularity of these devices, I'm sure there is an interest in getting this to work.
