/dev/ttyUSB0 does not created in Feisty

Asked by Alvaro Isaza on 2007-04-23

I have a digital storage oscilloscope that is connected to the PC through a USB port, in Edgy it was working without problem, now I upgrede my PC to Feisty and It does not creates the device.
Nevertheless usbview list the scope correctly. It behaves like a USB to serial converter.

Try:

sudo apt.get install brltty

Say me

Best Massimo Forti (slackwarelife) said : #8

Sorry:

sudo apt-get uninstall brltty

In ubuntu.com forum this solve the problem "interface 0 claimed by usbfs while 'brltty' sets config #1"

Say me

Alvaro Isaza (alvaro-isaza) said : #9

Thank you very much, now it is working.

Regards,

Alvaro Isaza

"sudo apt-get remove brltty" worked for me as well.

This problem is happening again in Ubuntu 11.10.

Something must be done because this is not normal. It's really annoying having to figure out what the problem is every time you use a USB UART device. And even more annoying to find the problem and find this solution.

I took me about 4 hours to find and solve this problem, even I am related to computers, Ubuntu and Linux. Imagine how annoying it is for anyone not related to linux and how many devices using UART through USB there are.

Let's deactivate BRLTTY default or contact with BRLTTY developers to not claim the USB interface by default.
