cable not working? diagnostic procedure
I recently bought an OBD2 to USB cable which is supposed to work with my car. I couldn't manage to get it working though. I am using Ubuntu 9.10. Before I start doing "esoteric" testing, I'd like to know better what the "diagnostic procedure" is. I tried -b 38400 and -b 9600. When I connect the cable, it automatically creates a /dev/ttyUSBX device. I'm running obdgpslogger and obdgui as root, but I also tried changing the permissions of the device to 777 and running as a regular user (the device is created as property of dialout:root)
I read you think the Ubuntu 9.10 FTDI driver is quite broken. How can I determine if this is the problem? If I were to switch to a different version... should I go from 8.04 or 10.04?
