    Re: Scantool with Wine

    I have never found a way to make Scantool work, the linux version or the windows version with wine never finds my elm device. An application that has worked for me is Garmon. It is available at... http://sourceforge.net/projects/garmon/

    Download the file and open it with archive manager, extract the file to your desktop. open the file garmon-0.3.1. It contains many items, one of which is the file "INSTALL" , open it and follow the directions in it. when you enter the command cd Desktop/garmon-0.3.1 remember to capitalize the D in desktop. If when running the commands you might run into dependency issues. the script in terminal will tell you that it is missing a library or package. If this happens then open synaptic package manager and copy the name of the library into the search box then install the package. then run the command again in terminal. If I recall correctly I had to do this three times before I got all dependencies filled and I had success. Type garmon into dash and then click on the package to start it. Ask if you need more help.

    Well i got it started and ran into this, Package Manager tells me that i have Python Gtk 2 installed. Not sure what's happening here.


    checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
    checking for PYGTK... configure: error: Package requirements (pygtk-2.0) were not met:

    No package 'pygtk-2.0' found

    Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
    installed software in a non-standard prefix.

    Alternatively, you may set the environment variables PYGTK_CFLAGS
    and PYGTK_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
    See the pkg-config man page for more details.

    In preferences device tab I have in the portname box ... "/dev/tty/USB0" and in the initial baudrate box I have 38400. Some devices need to start slow, Garmon will speed baudrate up once the device is working.

    Now it seems to me that i have the same exact reader as you. What do i need to do to get it to read. I changed my dialout permission, that causes it to longer say that it can not open PORT tty/usb0 anymore. Any ideas???
