Try the Xastir mailing list at www.xastir.org
It shows itself as "/dev/ttyUSB0" on my box (ubuntu 10.06 netbook release).
Have you verified that you're a member of the group for /dev/ttyUSB0? If you just added yourself to that group for testing, log out/log in again to gain those new permissions. Make sure that group permissions are rw also on that port. Alternatively: sudo chmod 4755 /usr/local/bin/xastir Which will set the SUID bit on the Xastir executable, letting it assume root privileges when it needs to deal with the ports. It drops to normal user privileges when it's not doing the above. Note that this can be a security issue, setting the SUID bit on an executable, but if you're the only one using the machine you're relatively save with Xastir because we do drop privileges when we don't need them.
- 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?
