    It's early, so you spelling linux "lunix" twice is forgiveable. Secondly, there aren't many options with linux. Barry is something you may want to get familiar with (read: google). It's nonofficial, but the only sync support we have as far as I know

    Barry is mainly for backing up, but you can still use your curve and memory card as mass storage for ringtones and other media.

    Old Linux users, not old as in age, but old as in long time users call it Lunix. =)

    If you run VirtualBox, or any other virtualization software that's supports USB port redirect, you can load the BB desktop software and sync in a Windows virtual OS.

    Or you can see if you can get Blackberry Desktop Manager running in Wine.

    I was not very successful in syncing my Sprint Curve in Ubuntu Linux. I am able to use my Curve as a bluetooth modem in Ubuntu 8.04. See my thread here:


    Please leave me any feedback. I am curious if anyone else has been able to get this working on their machines.

    Last I've tried DM doesn't work with Wine.

    Either use some kind of VM or dual boot.

    Barry works to some extent but it can be a pain.

    I tried to install barry in ubuntu. All I ran into was linux dependency **** and gave up. My computers are dual boot. You are better off just going into windows and syncing your bb in there. You can install XP faster than getting barry to work in ubuntu. I have been involved in the linux community for years and have never heard it referred to as "lunix".
