I am new to Ubuntu and I love it. I am trying to send some commands to a programmable LCD displayvia minicom.
I can connect now without problems, but I don't have a clue how to send the commands.
Examples of commands
#@Reboot ==> how to enter this in minicom
Restarts the LCD
Restarts the LCD and enters the programming mode for 2 minutes. The LCD will restart automatically
after 2 minutes. Use FlashMagic (http://www.flashmagictool.com/) to upload new firmware to the LCD
over the same serial link.
Turns the display on/off
So, now what do I have to enter to make it work? I'm sorry I wouldn't even know how to enter the @ sign. In hyperterminal on Windows I can connect just fine and when I enter AT it gives me an "OK", but in minicom I don't have a clue what to do. Well, I assume that I need to enter it in hex or ascii code and that i need to add CR/LF at the end .. but that did not really work for me
I would appreciate any tips how to use minicom...
P.S. Happy Holidays
