Obviously I've broken something. It just won't work, I keep getting 'false' as return.

However, I got fed up with it. Since running the original memotoo-profile returned 'true', I simply edited the original in /etc/sync/profiles/service. I only added my account data. And presto, it works. So fast that I at first didn't believe anything happened. But it's all there. Phonebook, calendar and notes.

In hindsight, do you actually use a "" profile? Perhaps I should have named the xml as "" as well? I don't dare and test it, perhaps it messes up things again or duplicates every contact.

Alas, my solution was to edit the config in /etc/sync/profile/service. Not pretty at all, but it works.

Oh, also, and quite important: don't use http. Use as "Remote database".

Glad you got it working.

I think where you might be having trouble with custom configs is that the xml filenames, the declared name inside the xml file and the dbus call all have to match.

I tried again, this time using filename It works fine now. Perhaps quipper can update his post, so others don't fall for the same issue.

Has anybody managed to sync other calendar(s) than what is set up as "default calendar" in N9 calendar config?

Thanks a lot! I created similar XML files to use my own Funambol (FLOSS SyncML server) instance. This works just the same like your memotoo configuration. And like you said before: it is important to have the names of the XML files the same as how you name your sync and service definitions. It won't work otherwise.

Right now I only sync the contacts. Just a hint in case someone is using this with Funambol, too: The contacts "data base" in Funambol is by default called "card". Hence, the XML of the service definition needs an adjustment:

<profile name="hcontacts" type="storage" >
       <key name="Local URI" value="./contacts" />
       <key name="Target URI" value="card" />
Alternatively, one can adjust Funambol as well to call it "contact". The same goes for the other fields.

Unfortunately, CardDAV isn't supported (yet?) as I also run DaviCal for the calenders -- it supports CardDAV, too. However, now I have a pretty good synchronization infrastructure without being dependent on any other service, but my own server.

Does anyone know a way how to store one's password not in plain text in the XML file?

i never tried it and have no idea if it will work, but maybe try changing the local database URI in your xml config
