Please help. Comport for CumulusMX on Pi3

Postby technerd » Sat Jun 17, 2017 11:36 pm

Sorry for the probably stupid Pi3 newbie question.

I have a WMR100 weather station that has been running for years on Windows.
I am moving to Pi3. Tired of all the windows updates causing me grief.

I cannot seem to figure out what to put in for the port in Cumulus setup.
I ran the following command: dmesg after plugging in the WMR100 to a USB port on the Pi3

I received the following:
[71744.297913] usb 1-1.4: new low-speed USB device number 9 using dwc_otg
[71744.442324] usb 1-1.4: New USB device found, idVendor=0fde, idProduct=ca01
[71744.442332] usb 1-1.4: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=1, SerialNumber=0
[71744.442336] usb 1-1.4: Product: Universal Bridge
[71744.448823] hid-generic 0003:0FDE:CA01.0004: hiddev0,hidraw0: USB HID v1.10 Device [Universal Bridge] on usb-3f980000.usb-1.4/input0

What should I put in the Comport setting for Cumulus? I looked at the FAQ but there is no /dev/tty/USBX retrieved from the above command.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advanced.
Ron

You don't need a com port for a WMR100 as it's a USB device. If you have the required packages installed as described in the instructions, Cumulus will automatically detect the device.

Steve:

After re-reading the post it appears I missed the library libudev.so.0

Thanks
Ron
