EDIT: I succeeded after I used sudo, is it intentional or a hacky workaround?
I have access to a laser, but it is not my own so I am not allowed to flash it etc.
Noone even tried connecting with Linux or Mac.
People succeded with LightBurn and RDWorks on Windows.
Sole remaining ideas:
“is your user profile set up with dialout / tty permissions? If not, LightBurn won’t be able to see the USB connection.”
How can I check this? I see nothing in logs complaining about it, but I also so far failed to check this.
“Port open failed” hint - investigating Search results for 'Port open failed' - LightBurn Software Forum “Something is keeping the port locked - That’s why it’s saying “Port open failed”. It’s trying to connect, and unable to. LightBurn is finding the port properly.”
What I tried:
I was trying to connect to ATMSolutions C02 PRO35 MINI via USB but LightBurn was unable to detect this device. Device > Find my laser was resulting in getting “Device discovery wizard” with empty device list.
log is at log on automatic detection attempt · GitHub - I see nothing useful there, but it seems that it at least detected something

Laser was sole connected USB device.

First time users - welcome! - not useful as what is described there failed for me
I am running
LightBurn 0.9.20, built nie 2020-12-20 @ 01:42
Ubuntu 20.04.2 (Lubuntu to be more specific)
I am not using external hub, I connect USB directly to laptop.
I checked a different working cable.
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
As far as I know I m using latest LightBurn.
I am not really interested in Windows version - I want to buy LightBurn because it has Linux support.
previous attempt Lightburn will not find my Rudia laser
This a new test on a new laptop, also on Linux
So far I failed to get even an useful error
