problem serial/USB stick and Xaster
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Hi,I do not know if this is the correct ML for this, so feel free to let me know if there is a better place for this.
For a ubuntu netbook (acer aspire one), I bought a cheap serial-to-USB stick (company = "digitus", lsusb says this: "Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0403:6001 Future Technology Devices International, Ltd FT232 USB-Serial (UART) IC").
It shows itself as "/dev/ttyUSB0" on my box (ubuntu 10.06 netbook release). However, I have a strange problem.- When I use minicom to connect to my TNC2 using that USB device, all works OK "device = /dev/ttyUSB0, setting = 9600/7/E/1"
- However, when I try to use it with Xaster (APRS software) I get all kinds of rubbish on the input.
The packets input gives this: 1:TNC-> 5SxECH= ws OFF 1:TNC-> c5d:BA 1:TNC-> ON 1:TNC-> ZWx>PEVERYjLxc5d:? ad 1:TNC-> c5d:ONen\KY>APUI+rJmN The setting is exactly the same as when using minicom (which does work OK).I tried this with another PC (HP laptop) which does have a normal serial-port (something that is becoming a rare :-) ), with ubuntu 10.06, I have the same problem:
- minicom works OK (both with the normal serial port and with the USB-stick) - Xastir with the USB-stick gives rubish - Xastir with normal serial port works OK. Is anybody familiar with a "known issue" with Xastir about this? Cheerio! Kr.
