I have Stellarium software which I want to use to guide a telescope. As my computer has no serial port I am using usb to serial. I do not know how to find the usb address to put into Stellarium.
I've done this before on Ubuntu, but now running Xfce I can't seem to find the info'.
Can anyone help? Pleeeeese

Use this command:

:: Code ::
lsusb


This will output something like this:

:: Code ::
lsusb
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 04a9:1909 Canon, Inc. CanoScan LiDE 110

You'll probably see your device name listed. If you don't have lsusb installed, just install it with apt.
:: Code ::
apt-get install usbutils

Thanks for the information,
Had to go away for a few days. Found the address as per instructions - put it into the Stellerium 'scope plugin hit return ( or ok or whatever) - VOILA!! er, Stellarium completely disappeared, never to be seen again. I'll try uninstalling & reinstalling it & have another go.
I sometimes wish I had stuck with the old Ubuntu EMC, accidentally 'upgraded' to this version. I have copies all the cnc configs but never thought about this.
