    Hello,

    I just tried to :

    ln -s /dev/rfcomm0 com5

    but nothing Igo doesn't see the GPS.
    On the other hand, if I use my laptop running windows, it works perfectly but it connects to com12.

    The funny thing though is that after I make the symlink to com5 if I cat /dev/com5 terminal says that com5 doesn't exist, so I am wondering may be my symlink should be something else or I don't know. Should I be able to cat /dev/com5 after I symlink it or not ?

    Hi,
    no you can't cat /dev/com5 cause the symlink is created in the winedir

    try "cat /home/joggler/.wine/dosdevices/com5"

    if this works, you can try something like sirfdemo or else to check if it's an igo problem or wine related.

    Hello Benny,

    Yes, you were right. I can
    cat /home/joggler/.wine/dosdevices/com5
    and I can see GPS data streaming. I will see if SirfDemo can tell if the problem is in Wine or Igo.

    Hello again Benni,

    Today I tried SirfDemo but nothing, so it seems it's wine related my problem. Could anyone help me how to troubleshoot wine ?

    Thanks

    chmod 777 /dev/rfcomm0

    Hi Benni,
    Thank you for your help. I tried to

    sudo chmod 777 /dev/rfcomm0

    but I am afraid nothing happened. I have tried to chmod rfcomm0 before with no success

    Here is the output of

    ls -la /dev/rfcomm0

    "crwxrwxrwx 1 root dialout 216, 0 2010-12-31 15:08 /dev/refcomm0"

    I am sorry this thread turned to be such a pain in the neck, but it is really important to me to figure this out. It is just not right !

    Thank you,

    George

    Hello,

    The WINE version I have installed on my joggler is

    wine-1.2

    Which version of wine is known to work with IGo ? Should I install any additional files.....like wine tricks (just guessing) or any other ?

    Thanks

    Hello,
    Today I came upon this thread in
    http://www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine...ry/066867.html
    Sorry if I am doing something wrong for posting something from other forum, but I have questions that are related to my problem with Igo and wine.

    "1) Pair the receiver with your computer, using the normal desktop
    pairing tools.

    2) Create an rfcomm binding for the receiver. Get the receiver's
    Bluetooth MAC address, and put an entry into /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf
    like this:

    rfcomm0 {
    # Automatically bind the device at startup
    bind yes;

    # Bluetooth address of the device
    device DE:EA:BE:EF:FA:CE;

    # RFCOMM channel for the connection
    channel 1;

    # Description of the connection
    comment "My GPS";
    }

    Where you will change the device line to your GPS's address.

    3) Link the created RFCOMM device into Wine:
    ln /dev/rfcomm0 ~/.wine/dos_devices/com1 -s

    4) Restart the bluetooth stack
    sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth restart

    5) Configure the GPS software to use COM1

    I've done this with the Delorme applications with great success.

    -----------------

    Unfortunately, there is no way I have found to make Windows apps play
    nice with GPSD. While GPSD can output the GPS data to a socket, you
    cannot tell Wine to make that socket look like a serial port to Windows
    apps."

    Okay, so firstly in my case I made the symlink typing :

    ln -s /dev/rfcomm0 /home/joggler/.wine/dosdevices

    but in this forum it was written

    ln /dev/rfcomm0 /..../...../.wine/dos_devices/... -s

    Question ! Why is "-s" at the end and not at the beginning and should I put "_" between "dos" and "devices" ?

    And second question it is necessary to edit /etc/bluetooth/rfcomm.conf if every time I connect my bluetooth GPS I manually connect it from blueman ?

    Thank you
