is there likely to be a version of opensyns for 14.04 (trusty)?

Asked by John Cobb on 2014-10-17

I've been looking at supporting a blackberry in ubuntu and see that the barry tools (which are available on 14.04) seem to do it. However they require opensync for some functionality. (Not sure just how critical).

No. The opensync packages are not provided any more, they are dead because of unsolvable dependencies and a lot of bugs.

The pedant in me suggests I should not reply yes since it must be self evident that my real problem is a package with a dependency on the now deprecated package and that is unchanged by this reply. However you have answered my question and clearly it makes no sense to include buggy packages in the supported software so...

You might check http://www.netdirect.ca/software/packages/barry/installdebian.php
Maybe you can use the packages provided for Ubuntu 12.04 to get the software running on your 14.04 system.
