Hi, Henning:
 thanks for trying to help me, with my problem for sync my Lubuntu Natty with the PDA (NDrive S300). All tutorials, be talk about the old versions. I have installed OpenSync version "0.39-snapshot". And now I'm blocked in the created and configuration of the sync's group with my PDA files. But for a begginer like me, not's impossible, it's a dream. I'm not sure there's the correctly place and I supposed not's right form neither. But I think is better than nothing. Sorry because Catalan is the language of my OS.

Before, I have this state:

ximo@Ximo-VGN-FE48E:~$ synce-pls
Directory 2011-08-24 02:49:38 Ximo/
Directory 2006-12-31 23:00:00 Plantillas/

Directory 2011-08-24 02:59:50 Documents/
Directory 2009-07-02 17:50:42 TomTom/

Then changed to:

ximo@Ximo-VGN-FE48E:~$ synce-list-programs
Microsoft Windows Mobile Green
Windows Theme
Microsoft Guava Bubbles
TomTom Navigator
NDrive For Windows Mobile
ximo@Ximo-VGN-FE48E:~$ synce-list-partnerships

Index Name Device Host SyncItems
----- ---- ------ ---- ---------

0 Linux desktop Pocket_PC Ximo-VGN-FE48E [Files Calendar Tasks Contacts ]

And now I have this too:

ximo@Ximo-VGN-FE48E:~$ osynctool --version
This is osynctool version "0.39"
using OpenSync version "0.39-snapshot"
ximo@Ximo-VGN-FE48E:~$ osynctool --listplugins
Available plugins:
ximo@Ximo-VGN-FE48E:~$ osynctool --showgroup synce-sync
Group: synce-sync
ximo@Ximo-VGN-FE48E:~$ osynctool --showobjtypes synce-sync
Group has no objtypes. Have the objtypes already been discovered?

I hope after with this one I may be sync:
