Hi James,

without knowing the hardware in detail I would say that if

- other devices are registered on USB in your setup
- connecting the USB adapter for paparazzi is not registered

then you have to search for problems with the USB adapter,
not the autopilot. You should see the results of connecting
any USB device by following the system message log with

tail -f /var/log/messages


As I guess the picoblade is a USB-serial converter, this
should be registered on USB independent of what you connect
on the other side.

Regards, Thomas
