Welcome to IWETHEY!

New KPilot's erasing Palm calendar data in Kubuntu Edgy.
Hi,

I'm working some more on transitioning to Linux. Today I've been working on getting my PDA stuff (using an old Samsung i500 cell/Palm PDA combo) onto my laptop.

I installed KPilot and it seemed to work fine, but it erased all my ToDo and Calendar database info! Ack! I was able to get a backup from another PC, but on trying to resync the new info to Kubuntu Edgy (6.10), it erased it again. :-(

This apparently is a problem going back to at least [link|https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/kdepim/+bug/66313|October]. (There's a way to rebuild KPilot from a different source, discussed [link|http://cvs.codeyard.net/kpilot/develop.php#sources|here], but I don't want to go through that.) Apparently it worked fine in Dapper, but some change in kdelib broke it. I don't have a warm fuzzy about this taking so long to resolve...

What do you folks use to sync a PalmOS PDA to Linux? [link|http://www.jpilot.org/|JPilot]? [link|http://pilotmanager.sourceforge.net/|PilotManager]? [link|http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/gnome-pilot/2.0/|GNOME Pilot]? Brad's [link|http://www.jsyncmanager.org/|jSyncManager]? Something else?

Waiting for an Edgy fix isn't really an option, and I'd prefer not to do things like sync on a Windows box and transfer files by Flash drive or something.

Thanks.

Cheers,
Scott.
New How would one go about installing testing debs?
[link|http://ubuntu.lnix.net/edgy/updates/kdepim-proposed/|This] is a directory of proposed Ubuntu fixes for KDEpim, etc., that seems to fix the Kpilot bugs. It is discussed in [link|https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/kdepim/+bug/66313|this] thread.

How would I go about installing these things .deb packages?

Thanks!

Cheers,
Scott.
