Developers / Re: (NOW WORKING) 'DS9490R 1wire usb adapter' working!
« on: February 04, 2013, 12:01:23 pm »
This is what I did pulled updates & upgrade(after hari's changes).
Delete exiting 1wire child if have one, create new 1wire child (used wizard).
Went into template and changed: Comm Method was saying 'RS232' so changed to 'Please select'
Under Device data - 37 com port on pc (string) - Default value - was still saying 'dev/ttyS0' so just deleted value and saved template
installing new software message.......wait to finished message
Click restart.
check 1wire says registered.
Plugged in software message........finished install message
back to web-admin child sensor of 1 wire created and showing temp
selected what room sensor is in + gave it a individual name

now shows under climate-floorplan.

I renamed profiles.ini in home folder last night as per instructions found after google search, should create new file.....well firefox would start from KDE for 30sec before crashing after doing rename.

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --reinstall firefox tonight and can now open firefox in kde desktop.
But still get profile missing message if using bookmarks from LMCE computing?
Will this follow to any new MD's I install?

What is the connection between the profile for firefox from kde and when opening from computing?
Must be different because page history & bookmarks don't show between the kde & computing openings (when it worked!).

It was going so well.....
My core has a problem:
Firefox would sometimes crash and tell me to reset it.....But now when I click a bookmark like 'web admin' just get message box saying 'Profile Missing' so I go to KDE and try firefox i get bouncing ball then nothing, then try something else and KDE crashes to grey screen.
LinuxMCE work's fine, I can watch Tv, Play music, see 1wire temp....just no admin.

Any logs of interest to anyone?
Is it my hardware or install/update-upgrade?
Should I wipe and start again? :'(


Was thinking I would make a donation as I don't have to buy a new 1wire adapter, although I am destitute at the moment that may change in the next few weeks, so watch this space...

As far as I know it was Hari that fixed 1wire....Thom just offered to if he got a DS9490R, so please read full topic thread.

Respect to all dev team.


I can now report success ;D (adapter registered)
I did need to make changes to my device template 2161 though to get it to work:
Comm Method was saying 'RS232' so changed to 'Please select'
Under Device data - 37 com port on pc (string) - Default value - was still saying 'dev/ttyS0' so just deleted value and saved template then reload.....Thats it, it just worked ;D

Sorry Thom was nearly ready to put DS9490R in post to you!

Wish I could code, tried programing a pic chip once in C+ gave up after 2weeks & used pic basic instead took 1day.



How do I test/get this? sqlCVS update and or apt-get update?
Sorry newbie question's :D
Also I may have broke the 1wire template 2161, By making changes to device data section!
Is there a way to get it back to original?

Many thanks for your help

I'm getting this error from the 1wire device log:
Code: [Select]
01 01/28/13 10:43:45.141 Opening port: /dev/ttyUSB3 <0xb776e6d0>
01 01/28/13 10:43:45.143 OW_init error: 22, Invalid argument <0xb776e6d0>
01 01/28/13 10:43:45.143 Connect() Failed <0xb776e6d0>
I did change the template to USB3, but don't know if I should have?
Is /dev/ttyS0 for the serial port 1wire adapter?
Can anyone help?

I get this from dmesg when pluging in 1-wire usb:
5075.476028] usb 3-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 5
[ 5075.638960] usb 3-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
[ 5077.191787] w1_master_driver w1 bus master: Family 81 for 81.0000003130d7.a8 is not registered.
Is this look correct?

Just got a DS9490R usb 1-wire this week, but no way can I get it to autodetect? :(
So I forced child on core as per wiki, but can only get it to look on usb0....When dmesg says it is on usb3, how do I get it to use that port? Can I force auto detection?
Not tried MD install trick yet as no MD available at this time.
