I will sync my files on my BlackBerry Playbook with my 12.04 desktop. Playbook will connect and show connection screen but Ubuntu can't mount this.

If I connect my BB Smartphone, I can connect and sync files or move videos, music and others. But I need this function on my tablet for documents, ebooks and other stuff.

Can someone tell a simply way (or create a PPA for this)?

By the way: sync files via bluetooth will not work. I can connect via BT but not searching or sending files.

What type of connection does the Playbook use? MTP? USB storage? – Cumulus007 Aug 2 '12 at 11:55

The easiest way to do it is via Wifi, as perfectly explained in this video:

You can also do it via USB, as explained here:

Hope that helps.
