I have a Tomtom XL IQ Routes, and I'm running Kubuntu 9.10
I can install Tomtom HOME 126.96.36.1994 from the device:
Install wine and cabextract:
Get winetricks: (http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks)
sudo aptitude install wine cabextract
Install needed stuff for Tomtom HOME to work:
Just in case it should help anything, have /media/TOMTOM point at /media/INTERNAL:
sh winetricks corefonts vcrun6 vcrun2005
Start the installation of Tomtom HOME:
sudo ln -s /media/INTERNAL /media/TOMTOM
(or right-click the installer, and choose to open with wine)
I can now open Tomtom HOME from the start menu.
But the application doesn't detect my GPS.
Wine is configured with D: pointing at /media/INTERNAL
I have installed Total Commander 7.50a just to check that wine has set up the drives correctly - and I can browse the GPS just fine from there.
Any ideas why TOMtom HOME is not picking up the device?
