Raspberrypi+lcd proc working.

So after three hours of shouting and swearing at my Raspberry Pi B I finally had LCDproc working on it.

The problem in the end came down to ttyS0 not existing. Because the MX232 runs via USB, no matter what I tried to change it to (RPI uses ttyUSB0) it wouldn’t take. In the end I remembered so arcane command and typed

sudo ln ttyUSB0 ttyS0 to create the node and link it to ttyUSB0.

Once that was done the lcd jumped to life! if this hold after a restart I don’t know but at least it’s working now!
