working with Linux?? changing language?

Woman WinkHello Blackberry community,

I am about to buy my fist Blackberry and I think about starting with the 8100. So far so good- but two questions I'd like to have answered first:

1. how are Blackberries working with Linux especially with Mandriva? Any of you synchronising your phone with Linux?
2. can you change the language? I am living in Italy but my motherlanguage is German. If I buy one in Italy can I change the devices language into German?

 

Thank you for any tips or suggestions and of course answeres!!

Hi and welcome to the forums!

 

1) Yes you can have German as your input and operating language. Make sure you the one you purchase has the correct multilingual

package loaded.

 

2) Linux is not supported by the Blackberry desktop software:

Not working with Linux?! Oh, that's poor.

Is it just uffically not working? Has someone tried it out?

Hi,

I've read over 100.00 posts and that is the first reuqest for Linux I have seen.

I doubt it's being worked on, but maybe some other users can help you.

The article was pretty specific.

Thanks

Re: working with Linux?? changing language?

No one ever asked? That realyl suprises me.

I am using Linux, exactly Mandriva, on my PC next to Windows XP. But I hardly ever see the Windows banner for my private issues and Iam not willing to chance Smiley Tongue

 

Can we leave this thread open for some field reports?
