Hey y'all,

I'm setting up a DPX-2000 to work with chiplotle. I've run the plotter's
test mode, and the thing works fine. I've got a decent usb->9-bin adapter
and a plotter cable that takes me from 9-pin to 24-pin, as it says in the
FAQ, so the connection looks fine - but I can't get chiplotle to detect the
plotter.

I get a couple errors that someone might be familiar with. First, when I
have the serial_port_to_plotter_map variable in the config file set to
"None," it just tells me that there's no plotter, but that it
"
Found ports:
  /dev/tty.Bluetooth-PDA-Sync
  /dev/tty.KeySerial1
"

Then, when I make a dictionary to assign the serial port to the plotter -
so the above variable looks like

serial_port_to_plotter_map = {'/dev/tty.KeySerial1' : 'DPX-2000'}

I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

line 161, in _read_port
    return self._serial_port.readline(eol='\r')
TypeError: readline() got an unexpected keyword argument 'eol'

which seems to mean that it just can't read anything from the port. I'm
using a Tripp-Lite Keyspan USB->9-pin serial adapter, and I have the
drivers appropriate for my operating system (Mac OS 10.6.8).

Any hints?

thanks for your attention,
Jeff
