Topic: Perl - Ubuntu /dev/ttyACM* Changes (Read 913 times) previous topic - next topic


Hey everyone,

I'm currently using an arduino uno to control my aquaponics system and I use a perl script to dictate to the arduino when to do things and what to do.  This all works pretty well, but one thing that has halted the project is that something is causing the device file (/dev/ttyACM*) to change every so often.  I haven't been able to figure out what is causing this, but I'm sure I have no other devices except the arduino that would use this device name; from boot the arduino is the only one that uses ttyACM* naming convention.

Hopefully someone here has dealt with this and can at least offer a workaround.  I'd really like to get this a bit more automated than it is right now.

Thank you very much in advanced,
