You definitely have a touch model from
Code:
lsusb
.
That doesn't mean it works...the panel is probably de-laminated. Ultra common problem through CF=30MK1.

The built-in Serial port should show up as TTYS0.
Code:
dmesg | grep ttyS
[    1.720094] 00:07: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4, base_baud = 115200) is a 16550A
[    1.742297] 0000:00:16.3: ttyS4 at I/O 0xe0e0 (irq = 19, base_baud = 115200) is a 16550A
This computer must have a smart card reader...

I missed the part about your USB-Serial cable in your first post. Is it PNP?

Take a look at cutecom (synaptic package manager)

Prolific is built into the kernel.
Quote:
Linux Kernel 2.4.31 and above already includes built-in drivers for PL-2303 (VID_067B&PID_2303).
NOTE: Google Android OS is also based on Linux kernel so it also includes PL2303 drivers.

Code:
lspci | grep Serial
00:16.3 Serial controller: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family KT Controller (rev 04)

Code:
sudo lshw
Should give the system board number. Paper labels are easy to print wrong.

Results here are from a CF-53 non-touch FWIW.

So....can you connect your device to the Toughbook serial port?

OK.. apparently the printed label is wrong. lshw reports that the model of this one is CF-29LQQGCBM.

Without the PL-2303 plugged in, a grep on the dmesg for [serial] returns:

Code:
Serial: 8250/16550 driver, 4 ports, IRQ sharing enabled
serial 0000:00:1e.3: PCI INT B -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 17
serial 0000:00:1e.3: PCI INT B disabled


although a grep for [tty] (case-insensitive) only returns:
Code:
console [tty0] enabled


Yeah, I have tried using both the PL adapter as well as the on-board, built-in serial port. I can't get the OS to recognize the built-in port and using the PL adapter, the software doesn't recognize the Palm. I did get the Palm to work with another computer, though, so I know that the trouble is not with either the handheld or the serial cable.

As to the touchscreen, yeah. I already knew it was TT-enabled. I had that working for a bit, but there seems to be a bad connection on the digitizer - or maybe a delaminated panel like you said.

Weather has been kickin' my butt. A slide closed the road for two days. No mail etc.

So if I send you a 29L (XP) you can check it?......I have about five or so.

FYI I use case sensitive......or -i.
Code:
ttys0 -i #for instance
?
Quote:
-i, --ignore-case
Ignore case distinctions in both the PATTERN and the input
files.

Yeah, I can check that.

I did do an ignore-case... no results other than console.

Wow (weather)... where are you at? It's 70 degrees here in Bama! lol

ttyS0 # the S is Serial, S0 always?the built in Com port. #is to separate the code from the description. Terminal ignores anything after #.

LQQ says dual connector touch?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????dual????New one on me.

This one.

Sunny California 3200 foot elevation. 7.07 inches of rain over two days, 3 inches of snow yesterday, beautiful most of today.

I'll try to find a L model in the a.m.

For the 117 viewers...I sent a CF-29N3 to rebeltaz. I thought it shipped Monday but since I don't DO holidays...nor week-ends I noticed the flag was down today on the mail box....so would think we will get a report after Thursday. I had no idea it was Monday and a holiday yesterday until the flag was up after evening chores yesterday evening.

Spent today on a "Classic" 1260 hour CF-29. NTQGZBM...replaced TS with used but good "new style" panel. Runs on W7 Ultimate. Scrapped a 29E in the process.....bad lower half...customer return.

Does anyone need a CF-29E for parts only? It might have only been the ram. 256MB on board seems to work.

What a weird set of paragraphs. :pat:

PM sent.

I turned notifications off a while back for my account, it was filling my email up.

Maybe you can change something in admin to make it send you stuff.

My newest email filler upper is spam from Spain. :blowaway:
