Default Sync'ing with Debian Linux

Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone been able to get their BB to sync with Linux?

I know how to export/import the long laborious way, I'm wondering if anyone has been able to just sync it like a palm device can.

I have a 7250 and want sync with the above distro.

Thanks in advance for your answers/comments!

Apparantly SyncML will allow you to do this, I've never tried it.

http://multisync.sourceforge.net

apt-cache show multisync
apt-cache show libmultisync-plugin-syncml

Also: http://sourceforge.net/projects/barry

I had tried that a while ago. I'll give it another go.

It's hard to get SyncML working for the BB - the documentation is terrible. I'm thinking about creating a tutorial. Is there any demand?
