I have just started working with Adruino. I successfully installed the Adruino dev tool, updated my java, reset my software permission to allow the FTDI usb serial driver, successfully installed the driver, restarted, tested several examples and went to bed.
I started coding up a new project and my Adruino environment informed ‘processing.app.SerialNotFoundException: Serial port ‘/dev/tty.usbmodemfa131’ not found. Did you select the right one from the Tools > Serial Port menu?’ When I checked the menu tty.usbmodemfa131 was no longer there.
The Adruino debug makes me think that the JavaVM is working. Has anyone else experienced this problem. Is there another driver alternative that might be more stable?
