I have been using “Andy’s Ham Radio Linux” on my PC for a while and have had great results with Wfview. I recently cleared and installed the newest version “v25a” which has a few new things and updates.
Now I keep getting the “could not open port. Please restart” message. I can get the radio to connect, when turn on the 7300, move the usb to a different port and then the radio seems to connect. I still haven’t figured out the sequence since it will shut off / on remotely then (most of the time). Sometimes still won’t connect until I do it again.
I used to be able to reboot the computer an have it all work and connect fine with no problems. Just when I updated my OS I’ve had this problem now. Maybe I need to go back a version? But would like to use some of the new features installed.
It’s saying ttyUSB0 is the problem. I do try deleting the /dev/usbTTY0 (or the long file link in /dev/serial/by-id/…" and it comes back with the same thing.
I know that the “Brttly” software has taken the port in the past, but I learned from that and always remove that if install on any PC/Pi on the radio that I use.

Any ideas what I got screwed up?
