Bonjour, comment exécuter movscount sous linux 18 ??? Merci d'avance.
MovesLink2 is running with Wine 2.3 Staging (tested on Linux Mint 18.1) and DotNet Framework 4 (dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe). ML installprogram did not work but I copied the necessary files from an installation on a Win7 PC into a created folder on the Linux desktop and I could start the app. I copied the file "Settings.xml' into the "..\Suunto\Moveslink2" folder created by ML after the first start. Than I connected my Ambit, changed the permissions of the USB device to read/write.
...read/write and started MovesLink2 again. It did found the watch and synced without problems.
I have Ambit3 Run (software version 2.4.1.). Before watch upgrade (I don't know which version) Moveslink was working in Ubuntu 16.04, Virtualbox 5.1.14 and Windows 7 as guest, but now Moveslink doesn't recognize the watch. Any idea how to fix this?
I have solved the problem. I accidentally installed wrong version of Moveslink 2. Now it works :)
Can you please work on making this compatible with Linux soon?
Hello, I've just purchased an Ambit3 Peak, but I can't upload moves from Linux. I'm using Ubuntu 16.10.
In a Windows7 VMWare , Moveslink2 won't start unless I boot in "safe mode", and then it doesn't detect the watch.
In a Windows7 Virtual box, Moveslink2 starts (in safe mode) and detects the watch, but when I click on connect to movescount, I get 2 error popup messages ("expected identifier string or number") when executing a .js script on movescount.com, and then does nothing.
I've also tried wine with no luck (it won't run the setup.exe), and openambit does not work either (even compiling the latest version from github).
It seems to manage to connect to the watch, says a newer firmware exists, reads the logs, but ends with "syncronization failed".
Does anyone manage to connect an Ambit3 Peak to Linux with or without a virtual Windows machine?
Ha, and I tried to use the Android app with no luck: connection fails most of the time, and it does not upload moves.
openambit says: libambit WARNING: get_memory_maps(): Failed to read memory map key
Last time I tried with openambit I got a message about watch model not managed. Now I am using without problems Windows in VirtualBox. What version of openambit are you using?
Just tried new version from git and I got the same warning message. Recompiling with debug enabled did not give any more information.
Running Moveslink2 in VirtualBox is working for me as well, I've had some issues when updating FW, so success rate isn't quite 100%, but I've always managed to finish it successfully with few retries. So far. Actually FW updates and some rare Openambit anomalies have been only reasons to test Moveslink2 from time to time for me, but I've been using Ambit1 mostly. For A3 I've only used Android app so far ( VBox for initial FW update).
(stupid 500 char post limit ...)
For testing Moveslink2 I've mostly used VM images from https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/tools/vms/ , VirtualBox Extension Pack is a must; and I've always installed/updated Guest Additions as well.
Regarding openambit and A3 Peak, I find It highly unlikely that latest 2.4 FW would work with any (public) openambit branch at the moment.
Hi, after switching to Windows10 in VirtualBox, at least I manage to upload my moves with Moveslink2.
I've contacted Suunto support, and suggested they publish the spec of the USB protocol they use, to help openambit developpers. Still waiting for an answer :-)
As of the Android App, I'm still having trouble between the app and the web server. New moves in the app do not show up on the web server, and conversely if I use usb to upload a move, the app doesn't sync it. Weird.
Possible problem with Openambit; firstly make sure your settings are correct , right at the top of the screen is a tool bar. Secondly authorize the app in movescount.
I was able to sync my suunto traverse watch with moveslink2 using windows 7 via oracle virtualbox
A few days ago I sent a request to suunto support, asking for any plan about moveslink2 on Linux. The reply explained that there aren't many suunto users asking for it, but based on my request, he would heave submitted my request to the development dept.
You might do the same: send an email to suunto support, asking for moveslink2 for Linux.
It may be also that many who would be interested getting suunto wathces won't buy those yet just because they have searched and see that lack of support for linux and they more likely are not getting windows or mac just for one watch and keep searching other watches or wait till the support for linux also arrives.
