It's a tricky thing to get to work, I know...

The weird way the syncing works is that the device will only show up as
a serial device (ttyUSBx and x+1 usually, for some reason I don't really
understand it's actually two ports) for a few seconds after pressing the
sync button. Try "tail -f /var/log/messages" or whatever your catchall
syslog is while the cradle is plugged in, then press the button and see
if something shows up.

I have the following in /etc/udev/rules.d/40-pilot.rules:
BUS=="usb", SYSFS{manufacturer}=="Handspring*", NAME="pilot%n", MODE="0660", GROUP="plugdev", SYMLINK+="%k"

This works OK with my Visor and the Gnome pilot-conduits/gpilotd.

HTH,
	Matthias
