Hello fellow J-Pilot users!
I'm new to this mailing list and new to Linux too. I would be very
grateful for any help in trying to make J-Pilot work for me!
My problem is that I am no longer able to sync my Zire 71 to my Acer
Travelmate laptop, where I am running Ubuntu 6.10.
I have got myself in a muddle and do not know where to go. I was
initially able to sync, but in circumstances which I no longer remember
I could no longer sync. In my computer log I read:
"Nov 8 15:35:23 localhost kernel: [17182448.456000] usb 2-1: Handspring
Visor / Palm OS converter now attached to ttyUSB3"
I go to System/Preferences/PalmOS and type in ttyUSB3 and do the same in
J-Pilot/File/Preferences/Settings. But when I try to sync, I get the
following error report:
pi_bind error: /dev/ttyUSB3 No such file or directory
Check your serial port and settings
Exiting with status SYNC_ERROR_BIND

I have made links from dev/Pilot to USB0 and USB1, but that has not
helped. Perhaps it was not a good idea to make two links? Could that be
confusing the computer and preventing the sync?
I tried using Gpilot as well, but that did not change anything.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the software, but that has not
Can anyone tell me what is wrong?
