Garmin Connect IQ on Fedora

Garmin Connect IQ is the SDK used to build applications and widgets for Garmin Devices such as the awesome Garmin Vivoactive 3.

Unfortunately, the package does not work on Fedora out of the box. In order to make it run, you have to take the following steps:

1. Install Gnucash (it is required because there’s no package for a compatible webkitgtk):

2. Export the path to the webkit library required (you might want to leave this on your shell profile or similar):

3. Install libjpeg8.

3.1 (Update) Enable this COPR and install libjpeg8 from there.

3.1 If you are using Fedora 27, you can install this RPM

3.2 If you are using Fedora 26, luck is on your side and you can just use the package from this COPR.
