GPS USB-Mouse is no longer recognized by OpenCPN
#1
Good evening
regrettably my GPS USB-receiver is not recognized by actual Openplotters OpenCPN.

In the previous version all worked fine.

The system recognizes the receiver / see listing from   lsusb
pi@openplotter:~ $ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 1546:01a5 U-Blox AG NL-402U
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0bda:8187 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8187 Wireless Adapter
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 046d:c52b Logitech, Inc. Unifying Receiver
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMSC9512/9514 Fast Ethernet Adapter
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9514 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMC9514 Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
pi@openplotter:~ $


The device is    Navilock NL-402U

In Openplotters previous version it could be found in the NMEA settings.
After activating per mouseclick and running diagnostics, the GPS data come in
and were used by OpenCPN.


In the new version there is no entry for this GPS device.

Who knows help_
Regards
Karl

does it show in the serial tab op ? install it there if not.
i had a problem with the imu true compass i had to set the pypilot to basic before it was sent to ocpn
after update it took a while for my usb gps bu-353 to lock on to a good signal.

Thank you for Your advice.
I checked the serial Tab.
I think the GPS is shown there.
(when I plug it in and out the list of devices changes)

I switched pylot to basic.
No GPS Signal at all!

The GPS is working fine with
- OpenCPN under Windows
- Navigatrix (regrettably not available for Raspberry)
- OpenCPN under MX Linux

So the device is ok.
Regards

Could you plugin your GPS Maus and copy&paste output messages from following command
Code:
dmesg

"I think the GPS is shown there.

did you select the one that shows when plugged in and push the auto button or name it  and push the apply button.
it needs to be installed there before the sys see's it

If you havn't "minicom"
Code:
aptitude install minicom
