Hello friends (especially Ethan and Matt)! I've been happily using my BlinkyTape for some time now, connected to a raspberry pi. I wrote new firmware for it that stores several patterns on the tape, and sending a serial command over the USB TTY connection triggers the selected pattern to play.
This is all part of a more epic home automation/intelligent assistant project, but I'll fill you all in on the details of that later. Anyways, I recently moved the system from a Raspberry Pi to an UDOO (http://shop.udoo.org/usa/product/udoo-quad.html
) board running Ubuntu. When I plug the BlinkyTape into the UDOO, it's clearly detected (see dmsg output below), but it appears to be detected as an HID instead of a USB Serial device. This is odd, because when I plug it into a Windows machine, or a raspberry pi (running raspbian) it correctly identifies as USB serial and I can send it serial commands. Since it isn't detected as a USB serial device, a /dev/tty* device is not associated with it, and I can't send serial commands. Do you have any idea why this might be happening!? Thanks!
