Hi everyone. I was able to get ADTPro to work earlier with an Apple IIgs, but I no longer have that machine (sold it during the lockdown to help pay bills). I now have an Apple IIc and I'm not able to get ADTPro to work for me. I've heard a lot of people say that it can be the cable (since I can't use the same cable as the IIgs), but I did order it from the apple2online store, so I'd assume it's the right cable. I'm also using the same usb to serial adpter as before. I had the same Linux distro on there as before, but now ive reinstalled it to troubleshoot, but I'm getting the same results as before: RXTX errors when trying to connect to serial.
Here is the long version if you want to check it out: https://github.com/ADTPro/adtpro/issues/102
And the older post that I had to get the IIgs working: https://github.com/ADTPro/adtpro/issues/97
Note: I never even touched my Linux netbook from when I stopped using the IIgs to when I got the IIc. It was supposed to be a dedicated machine. But now I've reinstalled the OS for troubleshooting purposes. (it didn't help)
It seems like it connects kinda. The Linux side of ADTPro shows when I make requests on the IIc side, but the IIc show Host Timeout.
I'm also trying to connect MacADT to the IIc with no results. I've tried every setting I can find in MacADT and both serial ports on my Mac SE. I've even formatted a Dos 3.3 disk to use for it.
(Note: I didn't get the chance to test MacADT with the IIgs. Also I know that both of the serial ports on the Mac SE are good, because I regularly do stuff with them like appletalk, modem, printing etc. I'm more familiar with Macs, and less familiar with Apple II, or linux for that matter)
(Note 2: I don't have an avilable windows computer to try this on atm, and my netbook needs a lightweight OS. I have a windows PC, but I'd prefer not to use it for this, plus it's like 50' away from my Apple II. The netbook seems like the perfect dedicated ADTPro machine imo)
I'm starting to think that I don't have RXTX installed properly, because I read some stuff that said I have to complie it or something. I'm not sure about how that works tbh. Don't quote me on that. I just read it somewhere. :) I've installed it using 'sudo apt install librxtx-java'. It worked with the IIgs but not with the IIc
I was using Lubuntu on my netbook, but now I'm trying Linux Lite. (Both run pretty well. I kinda thing Linux Lite is a bit faster though)
I tried getting help in some Linux-Help Discord Servers, but they weren't sure about ADTPro.
Thanks, I look forward to joining the IRC chat and BBS once I get a disk of MODEM MANAGER running on my Apple IIc! :)
