Thomas, thanks for reply! I

Thomas, thanks for reply! I love this logging prorgram. However, on upgrade from 10.04 to 12.04 rig control quit working. I am running the Yaesu FT5k. It use to work with rig ID = 129. I see the now have an Alpha 132. Neither seem to work. I am part of the dialout group. Not sure if i was so i added myself from command line... Maybe i need a reboot...

Anyway, slipping out to the commmand line I get the following:

blair@ham:~$ rigctl -m 129 -r /dev/ttyUSB0
rig_open: error = IO error
blair@ham:~$

Ideas...
