Linuxlookup.com: Handspring Visor and J-Pilot Guide !

Jul 21, 2001, 16:00 (1 Talkback[s])

This is a pretty good guide to getting a Handspring Visor (using USB) running under Linux. Even since last year, many distributions began using the USB backports, so some of the earlier steps may not apply to people running the latest of the mainstream releases where the Visor module is already built, but there are still some useful steps to help nail down the last few details.

"Again this document isn't aimed at the Newbie market. If I did this would be extremely long. Besides, a little bit of research never hurt anyone...

I tested this with both the HandSpring Visor and the HandSpring Visor Deluxe. These two gadgets are essentially the same. I believe that some slightly different methods are required with the Platinum, Prism, and Edge models. I don't have access to these yet so I'm not really sure. Anyone who has gotten these to work feel free to e-mail me.

Also note that if you are using a USB hub that it's a self powered one. Apparently Linux has some slight problems with non-powered USB hubs."
