The Power Braille uses the TSI driver, so: -b ts We removed serial port probing a long time ago because we decided that it was dangerous. A completely safe probe for a known serial braille device could damage some other device that the user may happen to also have connected. That's why, for serial devices, both the device and the driver should be expicitly specified. Strictly speaking, only the device needs to be because, if it's specified then brltty will probe it for known braille devices. Really, though, the safest thing to do is to specify both. -- I believe the Bible to be the very Word of God: http://Mielke.cc/bible/ Dave Mielke | 2213 Fox Crescent | WebHome: http://Mielke.cc/ EMail: d...@mielke.cc | Ottawa, Ontario | Twitter: @Dave_Mielke Phone: 1-613-726-0014 | Canada K2A 1H7 | _______________________________________________ This message was sent via the BRLTTY mailing list.
