View Full Version : [ubuntu] reading BG Monitor attached USB

July 29th, 2008, 02:04 PM
In Ubuntu Heron I have tried to read recorded Blood Glucose results but the device does not seem to be seen. I would like to read into Gnumeric which was recommended. I have tried on diabetic forums but getting nowhere as there seems little use of Linux. In XP I used a driver supplied by the manufacturer, Abbott, but they have none for Linux, also another graphing etc pgm which was crude but worked.

I was asked for the results of these commands:
brendan@brendan-laptop2:~$ dmesg | tail

This and my Palm M130 are really giving me headaches. I am almost going to start again and have dual boot. Any help would be most appreciated.
