QLandekarteGT and Garmin Devices

I use QLandkarteGT on Linux to access my Garmin Venture HC GPS. All things considered, it works pretty well. I recently upgraded my computer to Ubuntu 12.04 and it stopped communicating with my GPS though, and I was very sad. The error was "Failed to download waypoints. Failed to configure USB: could not set config 1: Operation not permitted." After tinkering with it I remembered that the way I fixed it before was by setting qlandkartegt to run suid root. Maybe that's not the best solution, but it worked for me and that's good enough for now.



qlandkarte, garmin, ubuntu 12.04

Try this:
- include the following line in /etc/udev/rules.d/51-garmin.rules :
ATTR{idVendor}=="091e", ATTR{idProduct}=="0003", MODE="0666", GROUP="plugdev"
- restart udev :
sudo udevadm control --reload-rules
- replug the Garmin
- start qlandkarte

Hey hey, worked like a charm! I knew there was a better way but I was in a hurry to get my waypoints loaded.
