i want to connect to my spark core via putty on my Kubuntu-Laptop. But it seems, the core is not detected properly. lsusb lists an openmoko-device which i suppose to be the core. But i cant get any other serial device as ttyS0 and ttyACM0 with “dmesg | grep tty”.
as i wrote, ther ist an device /ttyACM0, but there is nothing than a black screen when i try to connect to this via serial. I tried also to connect with the iPhone- and Android-App. It was less sucessful.The Tinker-App works, but i cannot use the cloud-IDE.
i had read the manual allready,…its really strange why it’s not working with my Windows nor Kubuntu-PC. Also when i try to set it up with my IPhone i can use the tinker-app. But the core is not shown in the cloud-ide. All i want to know is the Device-ID. Why cant it be shown in the app?
i got connected to the core via serial and the id. But when i entered the id in the web-ide to claim the core, nothing was happen. Just the request for the id appeared again. This is really disgusting!!!
/dev/ttyACM0 should work on linux for talking to the core over serial. I usually do something like “minicom -D /dev/ttyACM0 -b 9600”
It sounds like you were able to connect and hit “i” to have the core give you its id if you entered it on the website? It’s also important that your core be online when you try to claim it. Can you confirm it’s connected to your wifi and breathing cyan? Did the “claim a core” prompt give you any errors? If not, and you’re on Kubuntu, what browser / version are you using?
If it’s breathing cyan and you have the core id, can you email me (email@example.com / firstname.lastname@example.org) your core id, and the email address you’re using on your account if you have it?
