IC-7600 Won't Connect

I'm having the same issue, moving to Ubuntu 14.04 from Win7. I have a USB connection to the rig, and a device called

/dev/usb-Silicon_Labs_CP2102_USB_to_UART_Bridge_Controller_IC-7600_0202207-if00-port0

I tried his command in a terminal and got no connection. I then edited it to say
rigctl -vvvvv -m 363 -r /dev/usb-Silicon_Labs_CP2102_USB_to_UART_Bridge_Controller_IC-7600_0202207-if00-port0 -s 9600 f

Rigctl returns rig:rig_open called but doesn't specify ID 363, then says
Serial_open: Unable to open /dev/usb-Silicon_Labs_CP2102_USB_to_UART_Bridge_Controller_IC-7600_0202207-if00-port0
rig_open: error = IO error

Nothing seems to get this to connect. The original reply said to set everything to defaults, and that doesn't work, either.

FWIW, I can't connect to the rig through any settings in FLDIGI either.

Of course, it all works fine under Windoze 7.

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi Bob,

are you member of dialout group? Maybe that is the problem why rigctl can't read data from the port.

Thanks, Petr,

This is the first thing I've installed in Ubuntu since getting it running, and have never even heard the term dialout group.

Is that something I need to setup in CQRLog?

Re: IC-7600 Won't Connect

You are welcome, Bob.

If you want to access serial ports, you have to be part of users group that allows that. Maybe there is a gui for that, but much easier is to open the terminal and paste there this:

sudo usermod -a -G dialout your_user_name

When you log out/ log in again, you'll be able to access serial ports and the I/O error should disappear.

Yes, Petr, that seems to have

Yes, Petr, that seems to have done it. It runs USB0 and CIVAddress 7A, as the help file suggests.

There's no mention of the rotor control in the help file. My rotor is a Yaesu G-800DXA with an Idiom Press control card in it. How would I set that up?

Thanks es 73,

Re: Yes, Petr, that seems to have

I'm sorry, Bob. I don't have any experience with rotators but it should work like trx control but it will run different daemon to control the rotor. Maybe when you run CQRLOG again with --debug=1, there will be more information.
