How to install Garmin Extractor in Linux (for Garmin Forerunner 310XT and others)

To download the .fit files from your garmin in Linux you can use the following command line tool:
python garmin.py

but before to use it you need to install it.

#I like to install into ~/opt change the commands to install it somewhere else
mkdir -p ~/opt
cd ~/opt

#get the latest version from here: https://github.com/mart-e/Garmin-Forerunner-610-Extractor
wget https://github.com/mart-e/Garmin-Forerunner-610-Extractor/archive/master.zip
unzip master.zip
cd Garmin-Forerunner-610-Extractor-master/

#install the dependencies (this should work for Debian/Ubuntu/Mint …)
sudo aptitude install python python-pip
sudo pip install –pre pyusb
sudo aptitude install udev
sudo cp -iv resources/ant-usbstick2.rules /etc/udev/rules.d
#REBOOT OR
sudo udevadm trigger
#PLUG OUT AND IN AGAIN THE ANT+ USB FROM PORT
#OPTIONAL – if you have a previous installation
#OLD=$(ls -d “/old_home/.config/garmin-extractor/”[0-9]*)
#cp -Rv $OLD ~/.config/garmin-extractor/
python garmin.py
#done

Now you just need to upload (manually) the .fit files to garmin connect or other site of your choice.
