m210 downloads notes but fails to convert them

Asked by Carlo Bonamico

 on Ubuntu 11.10 32bit, I installed m210 from this ppa repository with apt-get install m210.

I have an IrisNotes for Smartphones pen, which appears as:

Pegasus\ Technologies\ Ltd.\ EN202\ Ver\ 3.02 vid:0e20 pid:0101 path:6/2 speed:full family:hid version:2

Launching m210 produces the following output

>m210 --version
m210 0.6

>m210 convert <notes

How can I get more information about the convert error? How can I try to solve the problem?

I'm happy to get feedback! And more happy to announce that this problem is known and has been fixed. The bug was actually in the library which m210 uses internally: https://bugs.launchpad.net/libm210/+bug/938892

I have also decided to backport this fix to Oneiric. Normally I all new features and minor bug fixes will land on the development version of Ubuntu, currently Precise Pangoling which will be released during next month. However, this bug was so critical that it is now backported and is currently being build on build servers. If you have added my ppa ( https://launchpad.net/~tuomasjjrasanen/+archive/tjjr ) to your /etc/apt/sources.list and installed m210 from there, then the new version will be automatically available as soon as the package is built, probably tomorrow.

Can you help with this problem?
