    Re: usb with ubuntu 123.10

    Are you getting any error messages? Anything that pops up on the Dash showing the USB? If no, then open a terminal by hitting 'ctrl+alt+t', unplug and plug back in the USB and type:
    Code:
    dmesg | tail
    Also, post the output with the device plugged in:
    Code:
    sudo lsusb
    and
    sudo fdisk -l
    Thanks,
    Chris

    Welcome to the Ubuntu Forums

    Please describe your USB device! What is a cycling computer? How do you expect to connect to it? Is it working with Windows or MacOS? If you tell us more about the problem, we can give better tips and advice.

    Re: usb with ubuntu 123.10

    OK, I found this when searching the internet for CycleOps Joule GPS

    http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/catego...ule-gps-47014/

    So now I know what it is. I suspect that is interacts with a computer via some Windows specific software, that comes with the device (on a CD) or that you can download from the internet.

    You know more than I about those things. Unfortunately many manufacturers do no think they can make money by making their devices work with linux. Sometimes you are lucky, and it works anyway, like you explained that you can grab the work files from the Garmin device.

    For this reason I have at least one Windows system available (to connect to hardware devices, that only work with Windows or MacOS).

    Re: usb with ubuntu 13.10

    There are two apps I know of which can be installed in Ubuntu and can connect to a gramin GPS and display the GPS tracks, waypoints, etc. They are Google Earth and Quantum GIS. I'm not sure if those will be exactly what you're looking for but they might be worth a try. There are also GPSPrune, GPS Babel, and several other programs for working with GPS data.

    EDIT: I found this link about Golden Cheetah, http://goldencheetah.org/, if anyone else can help the OP a litle bit more. I'm abou to go off line for a few hours.
