Hi guys,

First post here.

I have successfully installed the Avasoft 8 Spectrometer software on Wine on my Raspi Jessie. However, the Spectrometer connected via USB is not detected. I wonder if there are other patches in Wine which allows for USB devices to be emulated?

Although I have a feeling that it might be a bigger problem that I think. :cry:

Thanks.

If communication with the device is pure serial over USB, you might be able to get it to work by symlinking the device to a com port. https://wiki.winehq.org/Wine_User%27s_G ... llel_Ports

I'm also new to WINE, have it installed on my Mac. I too cannot get WINE to detect when I plug in a USB cord to an automotive controller. My Mac's system report does show the usb port is recognizing the automotive controller when plugged in, but the application running in WINE does not.

I read your link about symlinking, unfortunately I have no idea what this means or how to do this. Could someone walk me through this, very slowly? Thanks!!

I'm going to bump this because I am having a very similar problem. I want to connect a spectrometer from SBIG and control it with some windows software. The USB device is indeed recognized in Linux (Ubuntu MATE in this case):
Code:
$ lsusb
Bus 003 Device 009: ID 0d97:0101 Santa Barbara Instrument Group SBIG Astronomy Camera (with firmware)

And the software (CCDOps) installs and runs fine. Following similar advice from around the web (and the previous comment), we need to map the com ports to the USB ports. However, I am using wine-devel, version 2.11, and that appears to have already been done:
Code:
$ ls -la ~/.wine/dosdevices/
total 12
drwxrwxr-x 2 cduston cduston 4096 Jul  7 12:48 .

lrwxrwxrwx 1 cduston cduston    1 Jul  7 11:25 z: -> /


However, the device is still not recognized by the software. Does anyone have any thoughts? The only thing I can think of is the *right* port is not being mapped - so how do I determine which port in /dev is pointing to my camera?

Those are all plain serial ports; serial over USB ports would show up as /dev/ttyUSB*. The User's Guide has instructions on how to change Wine's default mapping: https://wiki.winehq.org/Wine_User%27s_G ... llel_Ports.

Note this will only work if your device really is serial over USB.

I appreciate the answer - it clarifies what I have been learning today about this problem. I'll edit the registry, but I am worried that my Linux system is configured differently. For instance, when I have both USB ports utilized (one split to keyboard/mouse, the other attached to this camera), I still don't have any entries that look like /dev/ttyUSB*. I do, however, have entries like /dev/usb/hiddev0 and /dev/usb/hiddev1. I assume these are the correct ones for serial over USB. I will probably try them both, but do you have any thoughts about that?

Thanks in advance.

(and I am quite sure the device I am interested in is serial over USB. For instance, the software used for this camera says "Windows for Serial and Parallel Port based cameras.")

Mice and keyboards aren't normally ttyUSB devices; mine are under /dev/input.

That could be your spectrometer. Wine's HID support is very new and incomplete, but there are some instructions for testing: https://wiki.winehq.org/Hid. You'll need the latest development (not stable) release.
