I do not understand what to do after having downloading the funambol file?
How to create the executable file as Marcel?
Lost in Linux universe  :-X :o :-\

I have created an account on the website, seems very interesting.

If you are referring to:
Quote
Funambol consists of a server component and a client for your device or application. Start by getting your copy of Funambol server from http://funambol.org ([url]http://http://funambol.org[/url]) and save it somewhere on your system. The package file, with a .bin extension, needs to be made executable before you execute it.
 
   chmod +x funambol-7.1.bin
   ./funambol-7.1.bin

from here:
http://www.marcelgagne.com/content/linux-thunderbird-and-blackberry-love-story-cooking-linux (http://www.marcelgagne.com/content/linux-thunderbird-and-blackberry-love-story-cooking-linux)

Copy the funambol-7.1.bin file to your home directory... open a terminal, and type:
Code: [Select]
cd ~
chmod +x funambol-7.1.bin
./funambol-7.1.bin
hitting enter after each line.
(obviously if the filename/version has changed the commands will need to be adjusted accordingly)
