Installing the Desktop Version of "MTK Data Logger Control BT747"

IMPORTANT: BT747 is updated with a CERTIFICATE to comply with JAVA 7 (1.7.0_51) security.
(I bought a trusted certificate (provided by a trusted authority) for about $300.  Received it on Jan. 17, 2014.
Thank you (!) to the users that donated a bit (thanks!) to partially cover the cost of the certificate.
 If every person using BT747 would donate $1 the cost would be covered in about two weeks (luckyly for you, I did not wait to cover the cost).

[SOLVED] BT-Q1300S (Qstarz Sports Recorder) on ubuntu

Dear All,

I've just bought a Qstarz BT-Q1300S, and I would be the happiest man in world if I could configure it (at least, get data) from my ubuntu. I've seen the Qstarz BT-Q1300 on Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) post, but I must acknowledge I'm not good enough in kernel compiling to perform this kind of tuning.

Have some of you already managed to use a Qstarz BT-Q1300S with BT747 on ubuntu ?

Since I've installed icedtea on Debian/Linux (because of the extermination of Sun's java in the main distro) some things work better (more debug info :)) and some doesn't. One which doesn't is bt747 jnlp installers since they simply choke on:

Pas de connection avec Holux GPSport 260 sous Ubuntu Lucid


je viens d'aquerir un GPS Holux 260. Je n'ai que Ubuntu chez moi pour récupérer mes traces.

A ce jour, je n'arive pas à récuperer mes traces, la communication par USB entre le GPS et mon ordi ne semble ne pas fonctionner.

Y'a-t-il une manipulation que je n'ai pas bien effectué?

Y'a-t-il un moyen simple de savoir sur quel port USB le GPS est connecter? (/dev/ttyS0, /dev/ttyS1 ou /dev/ttyUSB0 ?)

Voila ce que me retourne la commande lsusb
