[jp] Palm Tungsten E2 won't sync anymore in Ubuntu (solved)

So back in September I wrote about my Tungsten E2 refusing to sync, and
the various incantations I tried. Well, the problem turned out to be
hardware - specifically the connection between the Palm and the sync
cable. If I pushed hard, I made a connection and it worked. If I
didn't, then the connection was no good and the computer did not see the
palm. I looked at the connector on the palm itself and the gold
contacts looked worn.
So, that was probably it. I've been synching reliably ever since.
Synch is slower, however, than I had been used to before (when I had a
plain old Tungsten E) and I also note that the E2 won't read a card
bigger than 64meg (the E could read a two-gig card). This is surprising
to me, but I've put up with it.
So anyway, that's the scoop.
