Important Notice: SynCE now works without problems with WM6, and it is actually easy to make it work on Ubuntu. Follow this guide! I recommend the SynCE sollution, since it does not disclose private data to a third party (Mail2Web)
For those who have a PDA or a Smartphone with WM5, sync with Linux can be a complex operation. The SynCE project is trying, but make it work can be hard. Who already is using WM6, well… then it becomes harder. SynCE don’t even started to work on WM6 support. For me, I was using a virtual machine (VirtualBox) with Windows XP and ActiveSync 4.5 to at least have a backup of my PIM data and to edit the data with a real keyboard, but common… that is not an acceptable sollution.
Today I’ve found out, after a lot of research, a sollution that I’ll explain in this article. It is based on this article, from James, and some Evolution hacking.
