Sync mozilla calendar with Sony Ericsson T630
Let me start of by saying: I haven't done this myself, so I cant answer any questions about it. I just found it interesting enough to post:
This is how I've manage to sync Mozilla Calendar with my Sony Ericsson T630. I use a program called MultiSync which has two plugins I use. A bluetooth plugin so I can connect with my phone and the Ximian Evolution plugin for my addressbook and calendar. As you probably know I'm not using Evolution as my calendar but it uses ics-files just as Mozilla Sunbird. I configured the plugin to use ~/.mozilla/sunbird/calendar.ics and then just dont use Evolution. Works really good with bluetooth. Just run the program and my calendar gets synced. That was the main reason that I bought a my new phone.
MultiSync is a free modular program to synchronize calendars, addressbooks and other PIM data between programs on your computer and other computers, mobile devices, PDAs or cell phones. MultiSync works on any Gnome platform, such as Linux. So no Windows sync yet.
From this page you can see which devices currently are supported. No Nokia phones support.
How did you do this? I can't see a way to specify any filename... Did you do this in some text config file? If so, which one and how?
I really wanna do the same!Comment by onlymee at August 14, 2005 11:02 AM | Permalink
You have to find the original Evolution calendar file (eg. your HOME/.evolution/???/calendar.ics or something similar). Delete it (remember to make a backup). Then create a (symbolic) link to the Mozilla calendar file.
/home/foo/.evolution/calendar/calendar.ics (your Evolution calendar data - delete this)
/home/foo/.mozilla-sunbird/profile/654234asdf5a3d/calendar/calendar.ics (this is your mozilla calendar you want to use)
Then open a shell (xterm, aterm whatever...) and execute:
"ln /home/foo/.mozilla-sunbird/profile/654234asdf5a3d/calendar/calendar.ics /home/foo/.evolution/calendar/calendar.ics -s"
Every time some program tries to access .evolution/calendar/calendar.ics it will be redirected to the sunbird-file.
then execute "ln /home/foo/.mozilla-sunbird/calendar/calendar.ics /home/foo/.evolution/calendar/calendar.ics -s" (this will redirect apps trying to open the evolution calendar to the sunbird calendar.)
(change paths to the files)
