Unable to open port '/dev/ttyUSB0': gnu.io.NoSuchPortException


#1

We have a Java/Spring application that’s trying to access the 'ttyUSBx" ports on the current build of Linux linaro-alip 4.2.4-linaro-lt-qcom (46) on the Dragonboard 410c. One of the devices we’re trying to connect to is the “Digi XStick Adapter” using either of the “USB 2.0 (host mode only)” ports on the Dragonboard 410c. We can see the USBx devices in ‘dmesg’ as well as ‘lsusb -v’ at the OS level (Below), but are getting the following error when trying to access the USBx ports via the Java Driver:

root@linaro-alip:/opt/se/fulcrum#

Possibly a permissions issue?

Thanks in advance,
Rob…

hi,

could it be that your Java application doesn’t have enough permission to access the device, it might not run as root, in which case you might need a custom udev rule.


#3

Thanks for the reply. We’re currently running the Java Application as “root” and have also added the “root” user to the “dialout” group which is the primary group on the ‘/dev/ttyUSB0’ device (See below):

hmm. how about this:

which brings to

could that be it?

or even http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10620691/rxtx-not-working-in-ubuntu


#5

Thanks again for your reply. A little more background. We’re currently running this Java Application with the same components (JDK 7, FTDI, Linux) on a number of other devices and OS flavors (Dell IoT Gateway, Dell Edge Gateway 5000, Intel Edison IoT Gateway, Beaglebone Black, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Ubuntu Core 15.04, Wind River Linux) and it’s working as expected. It appears to be something unique to the Dragonboard 410c.

Thanks in advance,
Rob…
