How do I get ubuntu 13.04 to recognise the Garmin 405 ant+ usb device so I can download data from the Garmin 405 to python trainer or Garmin connect.

Any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks


Try this. You can install the Garmin Ant Downloader, using Synaptic, if you don't have synaptic installed, you can do so, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

sudo apt-get install synaptic 

Once installed, you can open the application by searching in dash for it, once open, search for garmin, and one the search is done install the garmin-ant-downloader.
