Using a BlackBerry with ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04

Mad Analogy has a nice walkthrough on how to charge or backup your BlackBerry device under Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon. This also works fine on Hardy Heron 8.04.

Barry, the software package he reccomends installing can also be installed by double-clicking on the RPM files that are available on the SourceForge.net site for the tool:

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=153722

You will need to download and install the following packages:

barrybackup-gui_0.14-0_ubuntu804_i386.deb
barry-util_0.14-0_ubuntu804_i386.deb
libbarry0_0.14-0_ubuntu804_i386.deb
libbarry-dev_0.14-0_ubuntu804_i386.deb
libopensync-plugin-barry_0.14-0_ubuntu804_i386.deb

Which some may find a little easier than the normal apt-get malarkey!
