Palm Vx & serial mouse communication problem
When I try to Sync a Palm Vx to my PC through serial port I get a communication error message in the gadget. My PalmOS Devices application is already configured to use tty0 or tty1 in unsuccessfully trials. I have a lot of information in the addresses, agenda, notes, etc. and do not want to loose that information gathered for years, nor to return to Windows.
As a test, I used a serial mouse in the serial port and It didn't work.
I verified the Bios Setup and COM 1 and COM 2 are enabled.
I also checked my system serial support with the following commands:
# dmesg | grep tty
# setserial -g /dev/ttyS
and messages were OK when compared with typical outputs.
My machine is a Pentium 4 CPU 1.6 GHz, in a U8668 motherboard (Award Software International).
I have Ubuntu 10.04 LTS with Gnome.
I am new in Linux and don't know Bash yet. I had followed indications from Internet tutorials successfully, but I don't know how to proceed in this case.
