I have a computer without the old rs232, it's like a netbook, but it's running lenny. I need to plug a termal serial printer to it. usb to serial adapter (prolific chip) should be okay, but didn't work. When back at home, just*plugged*the printer to the serial and it worked.*Plugged*through usbserial adapter and nothing happened again. Does anyone have any idea?
dmesg output when disconnecting and connecting back the usb2serial cable[ 1689.296172] usb 2-2: USB disconnect, address 2[ 1689.296404] pl2303 ttyUSB0: pl2303 converter now disconnected from ttyUSB0
