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I'm running a outdated version of Gnome Maps.

The version from the repos that Linux Mint is using seem to be outdated: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