Sony Ericsson W760i and ubuntu 10.04

Toshiba Satellite L305 w/dual boot Vista/Ubuntu

Does anyone know if there is a program available, or a trick to getting one to work, that will recognize the W760i in Ubuntu. Tried the Wammu and GMobileMedia but couldn't get the phone recognized when plugged in using USB.

Some "trick" to this by clicking on <whatever> that I missed somewhere? I contact SE about the W760i and Ubuntu but all I got for response was "We don't do Linux!"

In reply to: Just links.

several of the posts you listed were the ones I had tried at Ubuntu and didn't get anything that helped. Others are from some time ago and may not be applicable with todays 10.04 ver of Ubuntu. I tried the Wammu and GMobile but to no avail. Also tried installing info in Wine but that doesn't work either.

Thanks for the assist though.

While I have a few units to test with, not that one...

I've spent the last couple of weeks trying to figure out everything for changing over to Ubuntu. Really like the way it operates but it appears that I will have to stay with Windough$ to continue doing everything I want to. Too bad. Like the idea of security that Linux provides.

Thanks again. Guess I'll do the 7 update and keep an eye on Ubuntu forum and see if things get that far in the future.

Use Bluetooth instead USB

Use Bluetooth instead USB. Not only it works with Linux, but also more practical no wires etc.
Even Linux friendly mobile phone manufacturers like Nokia do not make firmware for their phones for Linux. Bad.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
