SOLVED: How to Sync HTC Touch Pro with Ubuntu Linux Hardy Heron 8.04 (Synce)

It seems their are a few users that are having trouble syncing their
HTC Touch Pro's with Ubuntu Linux. The following is quick guide of what worked for me.





Phone:
OEM Sprint HTC Touch Pro
ROM version: 1.03.651.3
ROM Date: 09/12/08

Hard Reset out of the box
Applied GoodThings2Life Touch Pro Cleanup (Sprint Edition) http://forum.ppcgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=44583


Operating System:
Ubuntu Linux Hardy Heron 8.04
Fully Updated Jan 25th



On Ubuntu, go to System>Administrator>Synaptic Package Manager

1. Install the following programs

multisync-tools
multisync0.90
opensync-module-python
opensync-plugin-evolution
opensync-plugin-google-calendar
opensync-plugin-synce
python-opensync
synce-gnomevfs
synce-gvfs
synce-hal
synce-multisync-plugin
synce-sync-engine
synce-trayicon

2. Reboot

Viola! The SynCE Tray Icon should appear.
Right Click this Icon to explore files, install cabs, and drag and drop from Nautilus File Manager... etc...

P.S.
Some users are having to open a terminal and type "sudo modprobe ipaq" in order to get this to work.

Special Thanks to: Smeal's Scrapyard

- Enjoy

Good info man!!!! You should consider asking mods to move to main forum where more people will see.

I even think this should be stickied! Alot of peeps hate M/S..... So they go the linux route.

Thanks again for sharing this!!!!

UPDATE:

After Using BigDiesel07 Speed Up Storage Card Tweak I can now view the storage card. Not sure if this is due to tweak or reboot. Regardless, if anyone is having trouble with viewing empty folders or storage card, you can try changing the directory SynCE browses from "synce://Pocket_PC/" to "synce:///"

GoodLuck

Do you sync your contacts and calender to Ubuntu? If so, what PIM are using? I am using Kubuntu 8.10 with KDE 4.2. If I could get my Touch Pro to sync with a contact manager and calendar, I could make the switch.

Thanks.

This will work in Kubuntu, however you must have Evolution installed. Evolution is the PIM used in this instance.

I've tried SynCE, it's decent. At the time I used it, I was syncing to MS Office on my other PC so it kept duplicating my contacts.

Got lazy and gave up.
Thanks for the tutorial, I'll use it if i want Ubuntu again.

I use synCE for transfering files. I decided on using google sync to keep my contacts updated, works like a charm.
