Might be a permision problem. The account you run Artisan on might not be allowed to write to that device.

Betreff: [Artisan-user] Help Linux + Artisan 0.6 + Amprobe TMD56: Serial exception: Unable to open serial port
Hello everybody,

In case this additional information can help identifying the problem.
I installed Artisan 6 on Debian (instead of Ubuntu originally) on the
same laptop and I get an identical problem with my Amprobe TMD56:
Serial exception: Unable to open serial port

(1) Is there a log or configuration document that I could post to help
troubleshooting the problem?
(2) Is there a terminal tool or command to monitor the in/out traffic
with Amprobe logger?
(3) Is there anything I need to do to the TMD logger other than
setting channel to 0, plugging to usb and turning on???

Thank you for your help.

Best regards.

Pascal Prado.
