Sep 19, 2011

I've discovered Firefox Sync a while ago, and it's absolutely awesome. Now of course I'd like most of my software to work this way! So is there a way to get the same behavior with Thunderbird?

Ubuntu One :: Can't Sync Evolution Contacts

Dec 4, 2010

I have been syncing files to ubuntu one without any problems for some time. I can't get my evolution contacts to sync. When I try to copy my addressbook to ubuntu one I get message "error adding contact". I can't get rid of this message - only way is to force quit. I'm running Maverick, and I did a clean re-install to try to get rid of problem - didn't work. Currently when I open the ubuntu one addressbook, there are three blank entries which can't be deleted or edited.

General :: Bash - Sync Files Between 2 Remote Computers Using Terminal

Jun 25, 2011

I want to be able to synchronise files between 2 remote computers in both directions. Say for example that I want to synchronize my /home/Documents directory with <username> What's the easiest way to update the folders in both directions, so that new/updated files on my home computer get transferred to the remote computer, and new/updated files on the remote computer get transferred to my home computer?

Fedora :: Sync Contacts Between BlackBerry And Evolution On 10?

Jan 20, 2009

HOWTO: Sync Contacts between BlackBerry and Evolution on Fedora 10

1. Overview

Open source tools are available to sync a BlackBerry with Evolution but it appears these tools are not supported by Fedora 10. The main thing that seems to be missing is the Barry plugin for OpenSync. Maybe the reason that this package has not been created is that Barry requires OpenSync version 0.22, whereas F10 ships OpenSync version 0.36. This HOWTO explains how to build all of the required components from source code. If the required package becomes available, this HOWTO would then be redundant.

This entire build and installation is performed in the home directory of a non-root user to ensure that no system files are broken. Some of the commands in this HOWTO must be run as root, when this is the case it is stated explicitly and otherwise the commands in this document should be run under a non-root account. The username for the examples below is erik.

2. Be a Developer

When you install F10 you are prompted to specify the uses to which your computer will be put. Hopefully you selected software development, if not your machine will probably be missing many of the utilities required for this HOWTO.

3. Initialize Evolution

Open Evolution and click on all of the buttons at the left to ensure that the necessary databases are created.

4. Prepare The Environment

Ubuntu Networking :: Sync Contacts With Nokia C6-00

Jan 25, 2011

I have been able to sync my Nokia C6-00 using multisync in Ubuntu Lucid 10.04. Thought of sharing it in Ubuntuforums. I have borrowed most instructions from one post for Nokia N95 but do not have the link right now.

1. Install blueman using sudo aptitutde install blueman This installs the bluetooth manager. It should be easy to configure bluetooth support for your phone with blueman menu.

2. To get your C6's MAC address, open a terminal and type:

Ubuntu :: Sync All Data In /home Between Two Computers?

Feb 6, 2010

i was wondering if there was a way to sync two computers so that all the data in the /home directory was exactly the same on both, and it was done automatically as soon as theyre both turned on and connected to the same network?

i have a laptop and a desktop that i want to basically mirror each other.

i take my laptop everywhere, so i want to be able to do work on it, take it home, turn on my desktop and as soon as my laptop is connected to the network, it'll automatically sync the files to the desktop.

i want the reverse to also occur - meaning i do some work on the desktop and have it automatically sync up to my laptop while im working on the desktop if the laptop is on at the same time, or as soon as i turn the laptop on.

i had rsync set up before, but i had to initiate it manually, and i was never sure if it was overwriting files or appending.

Ubuntu :: Sync Music Files Between Computers

Jun 12, 2010

I have a music archive on several computers, from time to time do I add, remove or change the archive on one computer. To keep this changes will I have to copy the new version of the music archive to all the other computers.

is there a program that can sync the music files. Let say that I update the info in one music file, then will the sync program notice the newer version and replace the old file with the new files on all the other computers.

I guess I would need a dedicated server for this where all changes are stored with some kind of version number of the music archive. Since not having a server would make everything (I guess) much more complicated. All computers would have to communicate with each other to check for a new version instead of only communicate with one computer (the server).

Networking :: Sync PDA & Other Computers Across Home Network

Apr 17, 2010

I am interested and looking forward to get a smartphone or a personal data assistant with calendar/ email/ contacts just like the iphone does.My intention is to be able to sync my smartphone's data with my home server that actually carries my PIM applications. Basically, during the day when I am not home I will modify or add/remove data from the phone. When I arrive home I would like to be able to sync my changes to my server. My laptop will be reconfigured to retrieve and sync from that server.

Proudly running with Slackware on ALL my machines (gotta love Slack!), and Apple being **** by not supporting open source and linux environment, it seems that it will be difficult to have something working out of the box and will probably require jail-breaking the device, etc.. I don't want to rely on external services such as Google calendar except for the email from Gmail.

OpenSUSE :: Sync Pim Data With Palm Treo 680 Via Bluetooth - Jpilot Sync Suddenly Broken

Oct 24, 2010

I use jpilot on opensuse 11.3 64bit to sync pim data with my Palm Treo 680 via bluetooth. This worked fine until today. Now I get the following error message when I try to sync: Syncing on device bt: Press the HotSync button now dlp_ReadSysInfo error Exiting with status YNC_ERROR_PI_CONNECT Finished.

The last successfull sync was on the 20th October and today is the 24th October. I did not change any settings in jpilot or on my palm device. So I guess there must have been an update of opensuse which causes this error. But I do not now how to look up the updates during this period or how to undo them. Was there an update between the 20th and the 24th Oktober, which might affect either jpilot or bluetooth functionality?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Sync Audio On Already Badly Out Of Sync Video?

Jul 9, 2011

Audio sync method. "Stretches/squeezes" the audio stream to match the timestamps, the parameter is the maximum samples per second by which the audio is changed. -async 1 is a special case where only the start of the audio stream is corrected without any later correction.Searching the net makes one believe that this command is just some sort of magic.People just put it in the line and it just works. Isn't that nice?

It says nothing about how to change the TIME the audio starts syncing. Like do I want it to start 5 seconds delayed? Or what about 5 seconds sooner?What if the audio gets more out of sync as the video goes on? Can I slip it a little at a time? What? No magic?No one mentions a file that already has badly synced audio.So what -async 1 really does is simply start the audio at the beginning of the file. LIKE AS IF THAT ISN'T STANDARD PROCEDURE?So what is the exact solution to syncing a messed up video? And why can't it just do the proper "timestamp" sync in the first place?No docs, no info and you are left out in the cold.

Software :: Rsync-like Program To Sync Files Between Computers?

Apr 4, 2010

I'm looking for a way to sync directories between two computers, in a "two-way" fashion. Basically, I have a laptop and I have a desktop, and I want to keep a particular directory synced between the two machines. The easiest thing would be to have some kind of networked filesystem, but obviously this won't work because the laptop may or may not be connected to the internet at any moment. At any time I might be editing files on the desktop or on the laptop, and when the laptop is connected to the internet, I'd like all files on both machines to be synced to their most recent versions.

I thought I could do this with rsync but now that I've looked into a bit more it seems like it works only for "one-way" syncing. In other words files are synced from a server to a client or vice versa, but not both at once. First of all, am I right about that? And second, is there a program that will do what I want to do? OK, I guess you could do it with some SVN kind of thing but that seems like overkill. I guess if there's nothing out there it shouldn't be too hard to write a script myself to do it.

Ubuntu :: Sync HTC Kaiser To Thunderbird + Lighning?

But I don't know a program to sync the Thunderbird with the Lighning plugin for the calendar and the contacts. Any recomendation? PS: I would also like to be able to load aplications to it (cab files).

General :: Sync "working" Dir With All Computers

Mar 29, 2010

Is it possible to have a folder that is stored on my server mounted via smb etc, that copies over any file that has been updated on my machine? I believe I'll prob have to learn some scripting to accomplish this, but here is what I want to do.

I have three computers, a laptop for school, a desktop at home and a server box sitting around for hosting files (I have access to this from anywhere). I have a folder for all of my school work, we'll call it "school". This folder is present on my laptop and desktop. Sometimes I work on my laptop at school and have new files created / updated. Other times, I work on my desktop and alter files / create new ones there. What I was thinking was using my file server as a repository. After I am finished working on one machine, I want to upload all the new files/folders to the server, so that when I work on the other machine, I can run a quick "fetch files" and being to work off of where I left of. That way, I don't have to copy files over via email or my network. Also, it's very helpful to have the updated files always stored on my server because sometimes I need to grab a file but don't have access to any of my computers.

Ubuntu :: Can't Install Firefox Sync Addon?

Dec 16, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit with Firefox 3.6.13 (from the repositories) and I can't seem to get the Firefox Sync AddOn installed.The addon can be found at:Whenever I try to install it, it comes up with a download error (see attached screenshot). I am running the same version of Ubuntu (albeit 32-bit) and Firefox on my laptop, and I can install it just fine on there. This leads me to think that this problem must have something to do with the 64-bit version.

Ubuntu Servers :: IMAP And Method To Sync Calendars On IMAP With Both Thunderbird / Lightning Blackberry

Mar 1, 2010

I'm looking for a method to sync my calendars on my IMAP server with both my Thunderbird/Lightning any my Blackberry. I found "IMAP Calendar Proxy" here recently, but it has been inactive for 5 years. I've seen people suggesting the use of services like Plaxo and such, but I don't like the idea of a third party messing with my calendars and contacts. Also, I've had to remove several viruses from computers with Plaxo, and I'm not sure if it in itself is a virus or not..... It certainly is a thorn in my side as is. This is for my personal IMAP server, so I'd prefer a free solution even if it is more difficult to install than a paid version. I mainly need it to just sync my calendar to my Blackberry and Thunderbird and couldn't care less about the contacts.

I've been Googling for things for quite some time now, and haven't really found anything that says that it will work with Blackberry and Thunderbird. They really only give a sense of maybe with nothing really defined. I can put on an Ubuntu server to sync everything? I don't want to leave my computer on all the time, and RIM has yet to come out with something decent to sync Blackberries and Thunderbird properly as far as I know.

I use Thunderbird in different computers so I configured it so that the datas are on an external drive. It works fine except that it seems that the contacts are still saved on the different computers and not on the external drive. It is strange since I have all datas for each profile on my external drive and all Mail and folders are there. I use different versions of Thunderbird (3.1 and under). how I could also have my contacts datas on my external drive?
