Hi Andrew, any news on the night time colours on nuno? Turning down the brightness on the screen is NOT ENOUGH. I asked back along but haven't heard of any changes.
Also I still cannot get nuno to see a GPS on our macbook. Any news? cheers, jim

Hi Jim,

Night colours: I expect we'll do this but we're doing a bunch of big SOLAS ship related things as the moment so I'm going to be daft and give you a date. Thanks for the info though.

As for the mac - it gets a bit technical but here we go...

Plug in your GPS or connect to it however you normally do.

Get up a terminal (launchpad, type "terminal" and hit enter)

Type the following

ls /dev/tty*

You'll get a list of serial devices and you can pick out the one your GPS is connected to. e.g. On the mac I'm typing this on I've got /dev/tty.BT-GPS-COM7 amongst the long list.


ls -l /dev/tty.BT-GPS-COM7

(for your one rather than mine which is called /dev/tty.BT-GPS-COM7!)

You should get a line a bit like this:

crw-rw-rw- 1 root wheel 17, 2 13 Apr 15:21 /dev/tty.BT-GPS-COM7

The rw-rw-rw- bit shows that everyone can read or write to the serial device (the owner, the group and everyone in that order). That's one of the reasons a serial device might not work with the Nuno that uses Wine.

(It's because of these technical hurdles that we don't really push people to use it)

Let me know how you go with that, what it gives you back - I'll tell you have to change the permissions if need be.
