iam trying to send sms using gnokii utility in linux
firstly i did
sudo apt-get install gnokii
i got a gnokiirc.gz file in /usr/share/doc/gnokii/sample/gnokiirc.gz file here
after that i did
then i transferred my file from the /usr/share/doc/gnokii/sample to home directory by using copy command as copying files to home is not allowed so i used sudo
sudo cp gnokii /home
i changed the port=/dev/ttyUSB2
and model=AT in the gnokiirc file in the home directory
and then i wrote
GNOKII Version 0.6.29
Couldn't read /home/etika/.config/gnokii/
config config file.
Couldn't read /etc/xdg/xdg-gnome/gnokii/config config file.
Lockfile /var/lock/LCK..ttyS0 is stale. Overriding it...
Telephone interface init failed: Command timed out.
Command timed out.
i followed as in the http://www.gnokii.org/docs.shtml
and except this "Note that you will need read/write permissions on whatever serial port you specify in .gnokiirc."(iam confused what is my serial port is it ttyUSB2 )
please do tell me what can be the reason of this error and how it can be rectified
