Help setting up radio interface for 706 MkIIG rigctld

Readily the next days.

When it works on my tiny laptop then I'm pretty stretched to get it running in my new and biiig laptop. Lenovo with 3k monitor. Whitout scaling the display shows a realy small presentation.

I can ensure you that all your commands were taken by copy and paste including correcting m311 to m310.

Help setting up radio interface for 706 MkIIG rigctld

Hi!

OK. Yesterday evening I was replying with smart phone. You are right. Small displays are bad.
Now when I look your message again from 19" monitor I can see that you have done mistake.

At command prompt you have typed "rigctld" and after "Rig command:" the whole starting command with parameters. Wrong!
If you type just one word "rigctl" and press enter you will get dummy rig (same as -m 1) and it is at 145MHz as default.

Copy next line and paste it to your command console.It is one long line but this forum shows it with 2 or several lines depending of screen size. It will copy ok when you paint it from first "/" to last "t" and then select copy:

/usr/bin/rigctl -vvvvv -m 310 -r /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 19200 --set-conf=serial_handshake=None,dtr_state=Unset,rts_state=Unset

Here is example with my icom7300. Note that command line is otherwise same as you must have, but rig model number for me is 373, you must use 310.
You should get text like this:

[saku@hamtpad ~]$ /usr/bin/rigctl -vvvvv -m 373 -r /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 19200 --set-conf=serial_handshake=None,dtr_state=Unset,rts_state=Unset

Help setting up radio interface for 706 MkIIG rigctl

Hi saku,

I take over every command line with copy and paste. I'm to lazy for typing all.

1) Your command "/usr/bin/rigctl…_state=Unset" is exatly taken over to cqrlog.

2) Today I become aware of a notice(?) of cqrlog by starting by terminal:

-----------------------
/usr/bin/rigctl -vvvvv -m 373 -r /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 19200 --set-conf=serial_handshake=None,dtr_state=Unset,rts_state=Unset
----------------------

and then rigctl"d" reports failed to started. Is it right the CI-V Adresse at 4EH? The qouters to explain why do I get on rictld...

To #1: It was necessary to me to turn into su mode. But when it worked.

O.k. now I do see the end comming of the problem.

" To #1: It was necessary to me to turn into su mode. But when it worked."

Everything should work with your user account. NO su, NO sudo!

If you need su then you do not have rights to access serial device. You have to be member of user group that can read and write serial device.

[saku@hamtpad ~]$ groups
saku dialout lock
[saku@hamtpad ~]$ ls -l /dev/ttyUSB0
crw-rw----. 1 root dialout 188, 0 11. 4. 11:43 /dev/ttyUSB0
[saku@hamtpad ~]$

I think we are not having any progress with this subject and I have very hard to find a way how to solve this problem.
