Plugin for OpenSync in KDE PIM

Mon May 11, 2020 6:32 pm
I have read about opensync. The status seems somewhat unclear. I kind of have the impression that they are lacking some momentum to really reach a solution anytime soon. But hey, this is my non-developer view of things...
I still believe that it would make a lot of sense to join efforts with the GNOME guys and go for a KDE conduit implementation. A fully integrated synchronization tool that Just Works (tm) would be a great selling proposition for the Linux Desktop. If you have ever experienced the Windows way (one app per device thing), you know what I mean.

I modified the title of your suggestion, as "I am a newbie" is hardly a good idea :-)
Also: OpenSync works with plugins, the individual applications need to create plugins, it makes little sense to "team up" with other applications, as the plugins need to be application specific.
And there already is a plugin for KDE PIM, so nothing to invent here, you need to check your KDE PIM installation and activate it.


Currently running Kubuntu 20.04, Plasma 5.18.5, Frameworks 5.68.0, Qt 5.12.8, kernel 5.4.0-46
FWIW: it is always useful to state the exact Plasma version and distribution when asking questions in this forum, makes it easier for us to help ...
