I suppose you have looked at the popular HOWTO already. If not, do so now as
it contains troubleshooting information:
In both SuSE and Ubuntu, the Palm was found among the USB ports (usually
/dev/ttyUSB0 or /dev/ttyUSB1) and could be synchronised just fine. I found
that in certain circumstances, the device gets locked by a process, e.g.
when trying to use pilot-link and KPilot runs already. In that case, log in
as root and chmod the device; it seems to have been helpful in the past.
Have you tried gpilot (/JPilot) yet? If you use Debian, this seems like a
more natural package to be using.
Hope it helps,
