    make sure the device is accessible to the user running wine.

    Just check the permissions of /dev/ttyUSB0 when the device is attached. E.g:

    # ls -la /dev/ttyUSB0
    crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 188, 0 Oct 9 13:43 /dev/ttyUSB0

    Then add your user to the suitable group:

    gpasswd -a <user> dialout

    Logout and login to get your groups updated.

    Automatically searching from iGO stops for me on Com5 speed 4800 and delivers signal just like from Windows.

    Help with Igo

    Hello guys,
    here's my problem.

    I did everything exactly you say. I have CoPiclot Bluetooth GPS and I use Blueman.
    So, I connect the GPS with the Joggler running Ubuntu karmic and my device hooks up to rfcomm0.

    When I cat /dev/rfcomm0 I see the GPS streaming data, but iGO doesn't find the device.
    I tried to chmod the device and it's okay but still iGO don't see the device.

    I also tried to make a link with rfcomm to com1 -ln.... and it creates a link but nothing
    After I make the link i cat /dev/com1 and it streams but it seems like WINE does not see the device.

    Please help.

    Somebody please help a noob

    Hello friends,
    Please please somebody help me with this issue. It's driving me crazy.
    So I installed OS Mint on my joggler and it works okay but the GPS.
    I use Targus GPS dongle connected to an USB HUB and my GPS device is CoPilot.
    I installed Igo8 and entered the key so it doesn't ask me if my gps is garmin anymore. Despite that the program (running in WINE) doesn't "see" any gps device. I tried usb and bluetooth option from Igo.
    If I go cat /dev/rfcomm0 in terminal I see streaming coordinates, but Wine and Igo can not connect.

    Please help

    George

    you did linked the device to wine?

    e.g.:

    cd ~/.wine/dosdevices
    ln -s /dev/rfcomm0 com5

    Did you link....

    Hello everyone,

    Yes, what I did was

    # cd /home/joggler/.wine/dosdevices
    # ln -s /dev/rfcomm0 com1

    Does it have to be com5 ? I'll try with com5 right away

    Thank you,
    George
