Palm Pilot

Just got a Palm Pilot Z22 given. And I’ve tried connect it to Linux. But I’ve tried both Gnome Pilot and Jpilot. But neither have been able to read the thing. Any suggestions?

while waiting for someone owning a palm pilot to drop in and help,
join a forum for Palm Pilot, Gnome Pilot and/or Jpilot and see what is
going on…

If you look in the /etc/udev/rules.d/60-libpisock.rules than you can
see that first your user have to be in the group dialout.

After this for me jpilot works without a problem if i use ‘usb:’ to
connect to it.

well this is what I get at the moment:

Still looking into this.

so my assumption is that Ferenginar was telling you to check that you were a member of the dialout group;

(and your printout seems to confirm what he said “your user have to be in the group dialout

I am wondering if you know how to check it …if YOU are a member of the dialout group…

…if you don’t know to check this detail …you can find out by following this GUI guide

…if you want to use a terminal,

Howto: Linux Add User To Group

tells you how

Yes, this was my intention and JudasDisciple for a check you can do
this:

grep dialout /etc/group

If you don’t see the name of your user than you should add your user to
this group and for doing this you can use the information from the
posted urls.
