    Do a long listing on the file:
    Code:
    ls -l /dev/ttyUSB?
    (Yes, a question mark... it means any single character, so that command will give a long listing of all ttyUSB devices, 0-9).

    They should looks similar to this:
    Code:
    [08:16 PM] materdaddy@fuel ~ $ ls -l /dev/ttyUSB?
    crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 188, 0 Oct  4 13:23 /dev/ttyUSB0
    The owner of the file is root, the group is dialout. I was mistaken about plugdev in my previous posts, I meant dialout. You will need to check that your user is in the "dialout" group if that's what your long listing shows. To find out what groups you're in, run "groups":
    Code:
    [08:21 PM] materdaddy@fuel ~ $ groups
    materdaddy dialout cdrom floppy sudo audio dip video plugdev netdev bluetooth scanner vboxusers
    If you're not in dialout (or whatever group your device needs), run:
    Code:
    usermod -a -G dialout materdaddy
    Obviously replace "materdaddy" with your username. Once that is done, you'll need to logout and log back in for the group change to take effect. You can temporarily check by running "su <username>" logging in again as yourself, and running "groups" like before. That should tell you if your "usermod" command worked correctly.

    Hmmm...

    .... is this that 'easy to use friendly OS' that's going to replace Windows?"

    Wait, this coming from the guy who just posted a bunch of windows registry voodoo in another thread?

    Seriously though, most linux distros are pretty user friendly now, the biggest thing is just certain things with hardware support and that's less to do with windows and more to do with companies in bed with M$, but let's not get too off topic here... :P

    Hey we all at one time or another went to the "Winders" darkside. Just some of use are trying to 'wean' ourselfs off of the 'Winders' bandwagon.

    The box said "Windows 98 or better" so I installed Linux

    It's all in good fun. I knew you couldn't resist, but the timing just happened to be perfect with the windows thread and registry mess...

    Back to the last round of questions, lalder, have you made any progress?

    Kudo's for all this ! I am a longtime linux hack but haven't tried to install Vixen in linux lately.
    .net 2.0 didn't want to install in Ubuntu 12.04 (64-Bit) on the first shot, I'll look more into it later on.
