Wine COM port Sub_title: Frugal Precise 5.6.1 Wine 1.4 COM port configuration
I am trying to get a COM port working under Wine.
My puppy version is: Frugal Precise 5.6.1
My wine version is: 1.4
I have successfully used a USB to RS-232 adapter in puppy on this machine, it is configured as /dev/ttyUSB0. I have tested this using CuteCom and it works well.
I'd like a Windows program to be able to use this adapter as COM1 under wine. I read that I needed to make a symbolic link like so:
ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 ~/.wine/dosdevices/com1
This made a link which appears in the appropriate directory, but my Windows program cannot see any COM ports.
The program I am using to test this is called termite. I appears to run correctly but it has no entries in the drop-down box for COM ports.
I also read that I could configure COM ports in the wine.conf file. My installation had no such file, so I made one. This did not change my symptoms though.
