I found a error y my commands earlier sended to you...
In every sentence that states /dev/USB0 you you must put /dev/ttyUSB0 and so on..
note the tty between /dev/ and USB0
Sorry, I was away from home and now I tested at home and found the "bug"

Still doesn't seem to work, but thank you for your help. Linux is nearly like a foreign language to me hi hi. I'll paste a screen shot of the terminal window that might help diagnosis.
When I then typed into the terminal - rigctl -m 101 -r /dev/ttyS0 the window just froze. I left it open and then tried to engage radio control through Gpredict and the screen dimmed and would not respond to any controls other than to shut down the application. Suggestions? Rick
Hi Richard... In Linux with Gperdict you have to use a hamlib "proxy"... First install the package hamlib-utils, using the console or terminal... If debian su - (provide your debian root paswd) apt-get install hamlib hamlib-utils if ubuntu sudo apt-get install hamlib hamlib-utils (provide your user passwd here) Then you must tune your rigctld command for a FT-847 this is a good starting point... again, in console... rigctld -m 101 -r /dev/USB0 Where -m 101 is you telling the soft that you have a FT-847... -r /dev/USB0 is your serial device, in this case I use a usb to serial interface, if you use a REAL serial port in yopur PC you have to change /dev/USB0 by /dev/ttyS0 The 0 in all this is the order... 0 is COM1 like in windows, and /dev/USB0 is the forst usb you connected... I think you already have dialup permissions... 73 de CO7WT ----- Mensaje original ----- De: Richard Lawn <[email protected] <mailto:[email protected]>> Para: Amsat BB <[email protected] <mailto:[email protected]>> Enviado: Fri, 20 Jun 2014 17:41:24 -0400 (CDT) Asunto: [amsat-bb] Question for Gpredict Users I'm new to using Ubuntu-Linux. I finally with a lot of outside counciling got FlDigi to run using either Hamlib or Flrig to handle CAT on my FT-847. I thought I was home free until I found that Gpredict would not control CAT on the radio. What am I doing wrong? Can anyone help? Linux is my only resource on this old XP P3 computer. Ubuntu runs great if I can only learn how to use command line Linus language hi hi! 73 Rick W2JAZ _______________________________________________ Sent via [email protected] <mailto:[email protected]>.
