Re: Need help getting OpenCPN running with Ubunutu 12.04

Hi Thomas, thank for your help
I did "groups" and then I have : "corinactis adm cdrom sudo dip plugdev lpadmin sambashare"
I tried "sudo usermod -a -G dialout $USER "
and try again to input my USB gps
Always nothing !
Sorry
I wait for your answer if you have enough patience
Thank
Yannick

Do you now belong to the group "dial out"?
If not, make sure you do!
The net is full of Linux instructions, if you need more help, to add yourself to a group.

Thomas,
I don't know how to know if I'am now belong to the group "dial out".
Just I did the last instruction you gave me and after that no information , nothing happen special, then I don't know how to add me to a group.
I am OK to learn
Yannick

Thomas,
I found the solution from a French Forum, Anyway, thank you very much for your help. I will remember you and tell about your great forum. I learned lot
The solution was: gtkterm to change the configuration of ttyS0, it was on 9600 baud, and in the "help" from openCPN to put the gps on NMEA mode.
6 days (several hours per days) of research, and one white night !!!
And it works now
Thank you again
Yannick
