I can't get LCDProc to run on my 634 Usb.. It never starts up!
Does the LCD get recognized at bootup?

What version of Linux (mine is running Mandrake 9.2 and the kernel detected it automagically).

If it is not recognized at bootup then are you comfortable with compiling a kernel and the modules?

If so, go into /usr/src/linux (linux should be a symbolic link to your most recent source code directory)

make menuconfig

scroll down to USB support
make sure that Support for USB has an "*" by it
I have UHCI and OHCI compile directly into my kernel

Go into the USB Serial Converter Support sub-option
make sure that the USB Serial Converter support is checked as an module (M)
USB Generic Serial Driver checked with an "*"

Exit out of this sub-option

Under --- USB Miscellaneous drivers

Make sure that USB CLD device support is checked with the "M" option

exit out and save the configuration
make dep and then compile your kernel/modules/modules_install
do a depmod -a

make sure that in your modules.conf (in /etc) you are loading in any necessary USB drivers (the system should do set it up for you) - mine shows
probeall usb-interface usb-ohci
alias ftdi ftdi_sio

and mine runs fine like the above with kernel 2.4.22-26tp (a custom kernel compiled by me)


If it is recognized at bootup you have to (for LCDproc) make sure that the configuration points at the right USB ftdi_sio port (mine is /dev/ttyUSB0). Make sure in the LCDd.conf (located in the /etc directory) shows the
Driver=CFontz (default is Driver=curses if I remember correctly)
Foreground needs to be changed to = no (once you get it running)
I run BacklightBrightness=79
in the [CFontz} setup
Device=/tty/ttyUSB0
Size=20x4
Contrast=165
Speed=19200
NewFirmware=yes
USB=yes

and then in my rc.local I do a:
echo "Starting LCdd......."
/usr/local/sbin/LCDd -i -c /etc/LCDd.conf
echo "STarting LCDd Process......"
/usr/local/sbin/lcdproc K C M X T G D U &
echo "Starting LCD Sensor Monitors......"
/usr/local/sbin/lcdsensor.cmd &

my lcdsensor.cmd contains
#!/bin/bash
/usr/local/sbin/sensors_lcd

if using the lcdsensor stuff you also have to have LM Monitoring set up.

Well, it's no wonder it won't run... what I have is for the Linux version (I don't think that there is a Windows version of LCDProc...

Just checked the software linkage on the website and see that 2Morrow, Inc. does do a Windows version... but I haven't played with it.
