I have a steno machine that I'm trying to connect to my computer with free steno software I downloaded called Plover...
It's connected through a serial cable and usb-to-serial converter, and my computer knows it's there but for some reason the software isn't connecting to it?? And I'm so confused. I'm trying to connect it to the right port (/dev/ttyUSB0) so I'm really not sure what the problem is.

Is it maybe a permissions problem?

I also get this when I run the program from terminal:
Xlib.xauth: warning, no xauthority details available
Does that mean anything?
