I was trying to install synce on ubuntu 11.10. It is used to sync windows mobile phones 5/6 using activeSync. So far I have managed to setup a a connection between the computer and my windows phone.(i.e. I see files and folders when I type synce-pls). However when I come to the actual syncing to Evolution This tells me to install "multisync-tools opensync-plugin-synce synce-sync-engine", however I cannot find the first two in the repositories.

ilias@E34G-SHF3:~$ sudo apt-cache search multisync     
libopensync1exp7-dev - Headers and static libraries for libopensync

So it's not in the repository. You need to download the .DEB files and install them (trough software-center or Gdebi).

Hereby the (direct) links:

  • multisync-tools

[ multisync0.90 (0.92.0~svn355-2) unstable; urgency=low ]

  • opensync-plugin-synce

  • synce-sync-engine

Please keep me informed.

Kind regards,

Hellos, Thanks for the answer, but when I try to install opensync-plugin-synce it says the dependency opensynce-module-python is not resolved and when I try to install libmultisync-plugin it says that dependency bonobo(>=1.0.22) is not satisfied. I think the problem is that the bonobo is now libbonobo2 or something. :? – digvijay91 Apr 30 '12 at 12:10

I'm trying to sync contacts, calendar and notes from my Windows Mobile 6 HTC Touch Cruise to my Ubuntu 11.10 laptop. I'm following the guide: which says it should be working. Maybe we can work together to get it done!

I managed to install opensync-plugin-synce in the following way, using a terminal window:

# sudo add-apt-repository ppa:opensync/opensync-0.22
# sudo apt-get update
# sudo apt-get install opensync-module-python
# sudo apt-get install opensync-plugin-synce
