Re: Need MEPIS and Garmin info
For whatever reason, the post I created earlier today didn't take
- user error probably.
Thanks for the info on the delay in the repository update - no doubt that very fact is listed in the Wiki
OK, installed garminplugin_0.3.3-1 via the CR. Install seemed to go OK. I rebooted firefox to be sure it took.
I have Firefox 4.0.1 installed on the Ostara box ( inxi below ) and when I checked for the plugin ( Tools>Add-ons>Plugins ), ' Garmin Communicator - Fake Plugin, Version 0.3.3 ' is shown in the list.
Checked the listed homepage ( http://www.andreas-diesner.de/garminplugin/doku.php
) and from what I read there are lots of graphs and maps and data that can be accessed using the program. The available information to be gleaned seems to be focused to runners/hikers/geocache folks. There does seem to be a site registration process before one can access the Garmin unit.
Honestly, I use the 660NA I have only for vehicle GPS and audio playback so I'm not sure how useful this plugin is for me.
I did run across the configuration page ( http://www.andreas-diesner.de/garminplu ... figuration
) which gave this tidbit:
I checked both of those locations in my home folder and they were absent. Maybe I would have had to register before they would have been installed...
So, that's it for the moment - if there is any other information I can supply, please let me know.
And as always - Major thanks to Tim and any others for their magic in transforming Debian applications into true Mepis ones for the Community Repository.
