Hello Gareth,

gant won't pull data from your Forerunner, unless I've misunderstood
what gant is from reading the package description (in Debian repos).

Here, plugging my Garmin GPS into the USB port elicits no response from
the computer, I have to run software to detect it.  I use GPSMan and/or
GPSBabel, depending on what I intend to do.  In Debian, there's also
garmin-forerunner-tools which pulls sports specific data from
Forerunners.  Look for something of a similar name in Ubuntu.  The
package contains a few program to pull data from the Forerunner and then
process it in various ways, including generating the XML data required
for input into gant.
