Hi all,

I'm trying to load brltty. I'm using a Braille Lite 40 on a USB-to-serial device, which Windows identifies as com4.

Is there any way I can get Ubuntu to recognize it? I've tried ttyS3. Do I need to specify a USB device?

The other option would be to continue using the actual serial port on my machine, which has worked before. I could do this, but I prefer to have something I can move around easily.

Thanks,
Teresa

I think it's something like USBtty3. See http://mielke.cc/brltty/ for details. We are planing a simple setup script for this case in Feisty btw
