Description BTJustice 2016-02-04 02:28:19 UTC
I upgraded my Ubuntu MATE 14.04.3 LTS Mono to the latest version using the two PPAs in the instructions for Ubuntu.  I use Mono with a weather program called Cumulus MX which logs data from my USB weather station.  Mono worked just fine, but will not detect the USB weather station at all forcing me to use  What changed between these versions which broke USB detection?

Could you provide a test case that shows the issue you're experiencing? That would greatly help us troubleshoot the issue.
Comment 2 BTJustice 2016-02-09 19:33:07 UTC
I am not sure how to do that.  The weather station in question is a Fine Offset model which is detected fine using Mono  It doesn't matter if I upgrade to or if I uninstall and then install  Neither way detects the weather station.

I suggest you talk with the Cumulus MX people so they can assist you.

There's really nothing much we can do without knowing what the code in question is doing.

All I know is my weather station is detected fine with and is not detected with
