Synching your Palm Tungsten|T to J-Pilot over USB on Ubuntu Debian GNU/Linux

Ok, simple enough with an application called J-Pilot, and some sync button magic…

Install J-Pilot (I used apt, apt-get install jpilot !)

  • Navigate the menu to File -> Preferences
  • Select the “Settings’ tab”
  • Enter usb: in the “Serial Port” field.
  • Select “OK”
  • Press the HotSync button on the cradle.
  • Click the HotSync button on the left of the J-Pilot window.

Note – per the comments 🙂 – press the hotsync button on both devices!

Next for some plugins, watch this space!

  1. Woo hoo!!! You have rescued a Ubuntu newbie from further hours of frustration.

    Thank you for this – never occurred to me to press the Hotsync button on *both* devices. I’ve been banging my head on the desk when I got no response to either the Palm Hotsync button or the jpilot Hotsync button. But now I know, and all my Palm files have appeared in jpilot (the main reason for getting a netbook in the first place!)
