[Bug 1479016] Re: Minicom opening serial but not input shown


Hello Joseph,
 I would not prefer install an unstable kernel version as this is a machine that I work with. It is not a test device.

Can we try different solution instead?

  Minicom opening serial but not input shown

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I installed Kubuntu 15.04 on my laptop a sony VAIO SVT1313Z9ES. I use USB to Serial adapter to console in specific devices.
  With the previous version of Kubuntu 14.10 it used to work just fine.

  When I try to open my USB serial minicom or putty opens correctly but
  I don't see any output on the screen. If I try to input something I
  see nothing on the terminal.

  The USB device is correctly recognized

  k@kubuntu:~$ lsusb | grep USB-Ser
  Bus 001 Device 008: ID 0403:6001 Future Technology Devices International, Ltd FT232 USB-Serial (UART) IC

  k@kubuntu:~$ dmesg | grep USB0
  [  994.909767] usb 1-1.1: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now attached to ttyUSB0

  I double check speed on the port hardware control and flow control,
  bit stop..etc etc. Everything is correct.

  If I use the same USB to serial cable on  14.10 it works perfectly.
