This document is written to help a new user set up a PalmPilot in [[Evolution]]. It has been tested with a Zire 71 (via USB) and a Palm TX (via WiFi), but should work with most PalmPilot devices.
Additions for anyone using different devices are appreciated. I have put in what I ''think'' will work, but as I only have the one device I can't test anything other than that device.
==Checking the Hardware==
If you have a USB connection you can test it with:
$ lsusb
Which lists all the devices connected to the ports. If your device is missing it may be one of those Palm Pilots (like the Zire 71) that only 'appears' on the system when it is actually transferring. In this case, press the transfer button on the cradle or "Hotsync" from the Palm Menus, type lsusb again, and you should get a display which resembles this.
$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 055f:0006 Mustek Systems, Inc. ScanExpress 1200 UB
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 04e8:3242 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0830:0060 Palm, Inc. Palm Tungsten T / Zire 71
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 06d6:0025 Aashima Technology B.V.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 
Then cancel the Hotsync on the Palm.
If you have a Serial Zire, it should be possible to test it by putting the Palm into hotsync and typing
cat </dev/ttyS0
which should display reams of gobbledegook.
To test the network link is difficult ; the simplest way is to see if your Palm is talking to the same Wifi system as your computer.
