Hi and happy new year.
To begin the year, a new post to use your BlackBerry as a modem.
Be carefull ! this option can be expensive and don’t permit by your peer.
With several developpers, I help to add the BlackBerry support on Linux. Barry is an Open Source application that will provide synchronization, backup, restore and program management for BlackBerry devices. Barry is primarily developed on Linux, but is intended as a cross platform library and application set, targeting Linux, BSD, 32/64bit, and big/little endian systems.
Yes ! I have received my new toy ! a BlackBerry Torch. I have quickly tested the new device with Barry tools : btool, barrybackup… ; and the OpenSync synchronization framework.
Here the first results of my tests. Later I’ll post an article about Barry using.
An old post where I explain a solution to write applications for your BlackBerry with Linux.
This evening, an old post about the BlackBerry using with Linux. I use for this several tools : barry and barrybackup ; and also the OpenSync synchronization framework. I explain how use a BlackBerry Storm as a MTP multimedia player.
OpenSync is a synchronization framework that will be a platform independent and in particular Linux. OpenSync is modular : a core and plugins for content formats and different kind of connection types. It should allow it to be a solution to synchronize PIM (Personal Information Management – addressbook contacts, calendar events and tasks, personal notes, etc) data between mobile devices like mobile phones, PDAs (Personal Digital Assistant), desktop computer PIM tools.
As I’m used to use and contribute to OpenSync project, you’ll find a post about
Maybe that somebody have noticed that ProgWeb is available from an IPv6 network. Indeed, I have added the IPv6 support for my web server for some days. So, I’ll write in the next days some articles to configure an IPv6 network on Linux (dual stack IPv4/IPv6, firewall, bridging…). For the moment, a little plugin for word-press called “IPv6Detector” (written by Andres Altamirano).
Here an old how-to that I have written about Linux installation on a Sony laptop and in particular a Sony VPCF11M1E.
This how-to will be soon updated ; to use the new kernel and applications features.
After having adapted a theme for ProgWeb interface, I have now adapted a theme for mobiles. I use for this, “carrington mobile” theme. I have customized it. And I have added the “qtranslate” plugin support. So now, ProgWeb is available in english and in french for your standard browser or from your mobile browser. I’ll make a new design for mobiles later.
