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 -- I prefer encrypted and signed messages. KeyID: FAC37665 Fingerprint: 8C16 3F0A A6FC DF0D 19B0 8DEF 48D9 1700 FAC3 7665
