My platform is ubuntu 10.10
I upgraded both the perl api to 0.03 and the slim version to 0.12 to fix a problem where i could not get get keyframes to work. However since upgrading, initially the script would take ages to communicate with the board and the script would not run until it was run a second time. Then the script ran and keyframing worked. Now its not possible to get a script to run and on the slim command line i'm getting Error: timeout reading from engine
if i enter commands individually it all works
i've tried going back to installing the version 0.02 of the api, though i'm not entirely sure how to remove the version 0.03
now when i run scripts after installing version two, the script does not behave - motor moves twice instead of once and camera does not fire.
I was starting to wonder if the arduino was fried but on my windows pc it all works fine, so it definitely my linux thats causing problems. How do i completely uninstall both perl modules from ubuntu?. I've removed libdevice-serialport-perl in synaptic package manager, and marked perl for reinstallation, tried again with the timelapse api 0.03, but no joy, it just plain refuses to run scripts and times out, however running commands manually is ok.
Can anyone help here?
