Enabling Synchronization

If you haven't used a handheld device with your computer before, you need to run the GNOME Control Center by clicking System > Settings, and make sure that Pilot Link is properly configured. Make sure that you have read and write permissions on the device, which is normally n /dev/pilot. If that does not work, check in /dev/ttyS0 if you have a serial connection, or in /dev/ttyUSB0 for a USB connection. You can do this by becoming root and running the command chmod 777 /dev/ttyUSB0.
