I've got a Spyder 2 colorimeter that I'm trying to get to work under Natty (11.04). I'm following the instructions that are outlined here and the output I'm getting in the terminal is:
Setting up the instrument ...aborted.
I've used this same device with success on Windows and on Ubuntu 10.04. I've tried using dispcalGUI which is a wrapper around the ArgyllCMS tools, and I get the same results.
How would I go about determining what is going wrong? I'm already running dispcal with the verbose flag and it's not being very verbose(!)
Here's some additional information about what I've tried so far and common solutions listed in the ArgyllCMS and dispcalGUI FAQ respectively.
- Installed the driver using spyd2en and it works successfully.
- Done sudo chmod 777 /dev/bus/usb/002/006 to make the device read/write/executable by everybody. I understand the device entry changes, and I determined the correct entry using lsusb.
- Run dispcalGUI as root.
This is the output of lsusb.
