This is my first post to this list. I'm new to Artisan and am
experiencing difficulties to configure my Amprobe TMD56 with Ubuntu. I
was wondering if somebody has a similar setup and could help???
My configuration is: Acer Aspire 5610 + Ubuntu 12.04 LTS + Artisan 0.6
French version + Amprobe TMD56 with USB cable. I followed the
installation instructions to set the channel and ID to 000 and 000 on
the logger. I didn't install the FTDI driver because I red that it is
included in the Ubuntu package by default (and I don't know how to
install it - do I ned to compile the C code myself????). The driver
seems to work anyway because something is detected when I plug the
logger to any usb plug and type "dmesg | grep FTDI".
In Artisan, I selected Amprobe TMD56. On the configuration page, if
the Amprobe is plugged in, I get the following error message when
clicking "scan ports": "Exception: scanforport(): global name
is not defined @ line 20246". After that, I have the following two
choices in the port drop down menu but none is working:
Is there a problem with the driver or some setting in Artisan that
should be changed? I've no clue yet. Could anybody help with this????
Thank you very much for your time.
