Reading Data from USB host in Yun


I have weighing scale machine which support USB interface to report the weight of the item. I have connected that USB interface to the Arduno Yun's USB host. I found it connected/listed under /dev/bus/usb/001/00X. I would like to know how to read incoming weight from that interface.

I tried below stuff without success:

  1. When I connect that USB inteface on WIndows box, I get a COM port and I am able to read the weight there.

  2. I don't see this device under /dev/input/eventX.

  3. I tried running python script that opens '/dev/bus/usb/001/00X' and dumps data but no success.

  4. 'lsusb' command list my device '/dev/bus/usb/001/00X' so I believe there are enough drives already installed.

This should be in the Yun section of the Forum.


Sure... I will post it there.
