    Believe toggling raw out keeps it binary when using a beast receiver. It sure not a pre decoded avr text dump and believe Gunter worked with them to get it native.
    Yeah didn't know that

    In that case that approach is probably easier.

    Output of ls /dev/ttyUSB* is dev/ttyUSB0

    I'll review the last few posts and play a bit more. Thanks all for the input.

    fr24feed is now working.

    In abdc's post "Manual configuration" with the six steps, one step involved adding 'fr24' as a user. It seems that user fr24 isn't then automatically granted access to tty, so 'sudo usermod -a -G tty fr24' has fixed that and its connected to ttyUSB0 and sending traffic.

    Great! Congratulations.

    It will be nice if you please post output of following command so that other users of Beast benefit from it ( replace key by xxxxxx)

    Code:
    cat /etc/fr24feed.ini
    I believe you have connected your Beast receiver to Linux computer using a USB cable. Am I right?

    That is correct. Output is same as Oblivian's screen capture:

    receiver="beast"
    fr24key="xxxxxxxxxxxxx"
    path="/dev/ttyUSB0"
    bs="no"
    raw="yes"
    baudrate="3000000"
    logmode="0"
    mlat="yes"
    mlat-without-gps="yes"

    I have to find a way to elevate the fr24 user level permanently as the usermod entry is lost when the machine is rebooted.

    I have moved to the next step of the Planeplotter under Wine install, all is fine until using the wizard to configure the i/o when PP crashes on entry of the 30334 port number with 127.0.0.1.

    Be wary you setup the IO to beast tcp, not serial.
    Then go into receiver - beast - configure tcp and enter there. But leave the raw out section unchecked or it will double up.

    That may also be a side effect of running under wine. But never tried.

    You can create a custom udev rule like this:

    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/50-myusb.rules
    paste the following
    Code:
    KERNEL=="ttyUSB[0-9]*",MODE="0666"
    ctrl-x to exit, y and enter to save.

    That should give everyone on the system access to the beast device.
