Aeotec Z-Stick Series 2 troubleshooting
« on: January 30, 2014, 11:19:42 pm »
When I plug it in LMCE won't recognize it. I can see in dmesg usbserial is loaded.

How to troubleshoot this?

When you do lsusb, do you see this in the list?

Progress.
First, I wanted to make sure there is nothing wrong with my setup, and there certainly is. I Installed LMCE remotely into virtual machine running in a headless box. I chose to install using Core only option and it seems something is missing in my headless install.
Today I installed it on bare metal with all bells and whistles, when rebooting a wizard came up and set up my stick no problem.
Now the question is how can I activate this stick in my headless virtual machine ...
Code: [Select]
Bus 008 Device 002: ID 10c4:ea60 Cygnal Integrated Products, Inc. CP210x Composite Device
Code: [Select]
cp210x                 21610  1
usbserial              37201  3 cp210x

What's the permissions on /dev/ttyUSB0 or whatever device the stick is seen as?

I had to set mine to 0666.  A udev rule for the device makes sure it gets set correctly all the time.
