another kpilot problem was reported recently, look down the list of answers for it, 2 days at most

Are you using Kubuntu Edgy 6.10?

I had an issue with syncing my Palm TX on Ubuntu Edgy 6.10 which required me to blacklist the backup of a particular palm program.

You might want to have a look through some of the bugs for kdepim:-

Bug 23470 looks interesting.

Your problem looked familiar to me so I did a sync with my palm zire 31 and kpilot and yep, I got the same message at 30%. It may well be a bug but I discovered that if you cancel the hotcync at the palm then click the blue button with the curly arrow in it (alt text is "reset the device connection" ) below settings menu of the kpilot program and again do a hotsync at the palm, it will sync.
I hope you can follow this!

here is a question, where are the instruction on using 'kitchensync? I have my Palm-V connected by serial (com1). Using kitchensync (came w/Kubuntu 7.10) I added a groups, then attempted to add a member but all I get is a popup window w/nothing in it. This doesn't seem right, but how would I know. Meanwhile, I tries hitting the sync button on my Palm cradle and the unit reports it can't connect to the computer. So now what? Why isn't the Palm connecting to my computer, is it really not connecting? then what, should I try another tool to sync thru? I'm lost and am getting frustrated. I need help. jwillar.

I have a Palm Treo 730 (?) and cannot get the program to recognize it for sync. I cannot find /dev/kpilot so apparently it does not exist. Any ideas how to get this device to be recognized? As above, I got 29-30% and then the program went belly up.

18:10:29 Daemon status is `Waiting for sync'
18:10:36 Next sync will be a Full Sync. Please press the HotSync button.
18:10:36 Next HotSync will be: Full Synchronization. Please press the HotSync button.

    This is what is on my screen but when I push the Hot Sync nothing happens.

Can you help with this problem?
