    Check out a program called Pilot-Link. It may already be in your distro. I haven't done it, so I have no advice.

    I know that all the recent GNOME versions of Ubuntu that I've tried come with something to sync Palm OS to Evolution, etc. That would've been great if I still had a Palm, but I can't find anything Linux-based (other than Mandriva) that will bother with my WM phone.
    I think the Ubuntu package is gpilot. Try running sudo apt-get gpilot and see if it returns anything (or use either Synaptic or Aptitude, either way).

    @ jig: Ah, it was Jpilot, not Gpilot! That was it...

    Actually, it's both. JPilot is a standalone application that IMO works very well. It also can sync Keyring data if you use that for managing passwords.

    However Ubuntu also has something called gpilotd built-in. You can go to your system settings and enable it (I think it's called "Palm OS Settings"), and it will sync your data directly to Evolution. I tried to like gpilotd and Evolution, I really did, but when I tried it I just got tired of the half-baked appearance and functionality of Evolution.
