How do I troubleshoot our Fitbit that doesn't seem to sync? I installed using the PPA on a Lenovo E420 running Ubuntu 12.04. Running sudo start libfitbit_client doesn't seem to do anything either. Syncs fine under Windows 7.

To troubleshoot libfitbit, check out the log at /var/log/libfitbit_client.log

tail -f /var/log/libfitbit_client.log

If it's working, you'll see transmission attempts and, ideally, a transmit success, followed by evidence of an update on the Fitbit website. Alternately, you'll see no device connected or transmission failures. You may have to kill and restart the libfitbit process.
