I have a Pololu Mini Maestro 24 channels and I am trying to access it from my linux machine (Ubuntu 14.04).
When I run lsusb I get:
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 203a:fffa Bus 001 Device 006: ID 203a:fffa Bus 001 Device 005: ID 203a:fff9 Bus 001 Device 004: ID 203a:fffa Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 002 Device 006: ID 1ffb:008c Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
So I have the Bus 002 Device 006: ID 1ffb:008c that I think is good…
And then when I do dmesg:
[ 1829.281366] usb 2-1: new full-speed USB device number 6 using uhci_hcd [ 1829.415530] usb 2-1: New USB device found, idVendor=1ffb, idProduct=008c [ 1829.415534] usb 2-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=5 [ 1829.415535] usb 2-1: Product: Pololu Mini Maestro 24-Channel USB Servo Controller [ 1829.415536] usb 2-1: Manufacturer: Pololu Corporation [ 1829.415537] usb 2-1: SerialNumber: 00005807 [ 1829.448905] cdc_acm 2-1:1.0: This device cannot do calls on its own.

[ 1829.452351] cdc_acm 2-1:1.2: ttyACM1: USB ACM device parallels@ubuntu:~/Desktop/maestro-linux$ ^C
Then, when I open the MaestroConrolCenter, I get:
“There was an error while starting up. Error connecting to device to get serial number (8 of 9, 03198be0). Access denied.”
Do you know what this means? How do I get passed this error message and get “access accepted”?
The green LED is steadily on and the orange one is blinking slowly. Shutting down my computer and unplugging the Maestro Mini doesn’t work.
