Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


I would like to be able to edit OSM from GNOME Maps, which I believe is now supposed to be possible. However, when I try to set up my GNOME Maps to work with OSM I enter my OSM correct credentials and get a message that says "Authorization Request Failed. You have denied application GNOME Maps access to your account." Has anyone run into this problem? How can I authorize GNOME Maps to access my OSM account?

Update: I'm running PureOS 9.0.

Thank you,

Yes I have exactly this problem as well! Running Ubuntu 21.04.

Me three! It currently says "Authorisation request failed" "You have denied application GNOME Maps access to your account". Do we need to create a web API?

Try upgrading gnome-maps.

I'm using Gentoo and gnome-maps-41.4 seems to work. I had an older version installed previously and it wasn't able to authorize me (I don't recall what version I had installed).

BTW, seems one can add POIs with gnome-maps and that's about it, and I guess I've been using iD for so long that it seems redundant. Still could be useful for some people I suppose.
