Wine com ports?


#1

I’m can’t get com ports in wine programs to connect.

I’ve checked what USB port I’m using.

$ dmesg | grep tty
[ 0.000000] console [tty0] enabled
[ 2093.525101] cdc_acm 1-1.1.1:1.0: ttyACM0: USB ACM device
[ 3696.518770] cdc_acm 1-1.1.1:1.0: ttyACM0: USB ACM device

I’ve made a sym link to com1 from ttyACM0

$ cd .wine/dosdevices
$ ln -s /dev/ttyACM0 com1

When I try to connect to com1 in the wine program (u-center) it says cannot connect.

Am I missing something???

Finally, with a mate’s encouragement I’ve solved this.
I found this post.

But it didn’t work as is, my computer labels usb ports as dev/ttyACM0 not dev/ttyUSB0, so I just had to change that line and it now works fine.

So I think the main problem was not being in the dial out list
