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


When trying to connect to my OpenStreetMap account from Gnome Maps on Linux Mint 20.3 Una, it give me that error:

"Authorization request failed"

I tried to close and relaunch the app and also I do tried a new account without any success.

What I need to do to be able to login?

Best regards,

This is probably a gnome maps issue, have you checked https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-maps/-/issues ?

After looking at their GitLab, the issues was fixed in a update.

I'm running a outdated version of Gnome Maps.

The version from the repos that Linux Mint is using seem to be outdated:

root@workstation-dc:/home/guillaumesoucy# apt-get install gnome-maps
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
gnome-maps is already the newest version (3.38.2-1).
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 3 not upgraded.

In that case, how I can get the latest version?

With regards,
