I’m running Ubuntu 18.04. I installed libmonome and serialosc from source and couldn’t make it work, then discovered there’s a PPA so I uninstalled from source and installed via apt.
The documentation talks about running “serialosc” but I have no such command available. I do have three similar-looking ones, though.
If I run serialoscd, nothing happens; the prompt doesn’t even hang.
If I run serialosc-device I get “serialosc-device: device not specified, exiting”. I’m probably not giving it an argument it needs.
If I run serialosc-detector, the prompt hangs. If I then plug in the monome, I get some funny text, the second line of which is always the same.
Here’s a transcript of the experiments I just described:
jeff@jeff-Inspiron-5567:~$ serialoscd jeff@jeff-Inspiron-5567:~$ serialosc-device serialosc-device: device not specified, exiting jeff@jeff-Inspiron-5567:~$ serialosc-detector ЅH�(V\P /dev/ttyUSB0\P^C jeff@jeff-Inspiron-5567:~$ serialosc-detector 0g#�vU\P /dev/ttyUSB0\P^C
(The two occurrences of “^C” correspond to my pressing Ctrl-C to kill the process.)
