Cannot see USB port in Replicatorg


I have Replicatorg-0040 running under Mint12 on a Lenovo R60 laptop. It does not find any serial ports on scan. I have looked for ttyusb but can only find tty0 to tty63 and ttyS0, S1 etc. Printers and USB sticks all work fine so the ports are working. Do I need to load some form of USB support? Tried starting from root in case it was
permission for the port and get (process:2123): GConf-WARNING **: Client failed to connect to the D-BUS daemon:
Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply,the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
GConf Error: No D-BUS daemon running. Have tried the fixes on the
installation site.
R60e steve # ls -la /dev/ttyUSB0
ls: cannot access /dev/ttyUSB0: No such file or directory
R60e steve # ls -la /dev/tty
crw-rw-rw- 1 root tty 5, 0 2013-02-03 17:45 /dev/tty

All help much appreciated

Welcome to LinuxQuestions.

Post the output of the lsusb command. This will show us the type of USB serial port adapter and if it is being recognized. You can also look at the output of the dmesg command to see if the adapter is being assigned a device ID.

Nothing indicates that a USB serial port adapter is being recognized. Do you know its make or model number?

Dear Michael. This is a direct USB port on the Lenovo R60e laptop, I am not using an adaptor. The ports work fine for USB sticks, printers etc. Is there a command or program to check what hardware is installed?. Regards Steve

So the machine connects directly to the USB port? What type and make/ model?

There is no indication that anything is connected to a USB port from the posted information.

AFAIK the FTDI driver is included so if the Arduino board is functioning correctly it should be automatically recognized and the serial port device created. Does the Thing-o-matic function and the interface panel work?
