Title: Mochad and CM15A
Post by: rvalecruz on March 23, 2016, 02:48:23 PM
Hello, I'm a noob to Linux. I'm trying to get Mochad to work with my CM15A. I have Raspbian installed on my Raspberry Pi.  When I plug my CM15A into my RPi, I did not see any messages come up from Mochad like some people have posted. When I enter the command "pl a1 on | nc localhost 1099", I get a bash error that says "pl" is an unknown command.  I can see that my RPi sees my CM15A by doing "lsusb". If I check for installed packages using "dpkg -l", I don't see Mochad....am I supposed to?  Thanks in advance.  Rick

I haven't used mochad in a while, nor did I use it very much when I had it installed.  I used it on RPi and it worked easily as expected.  I followed the guide on the mochad web site as I recall.

If you have mochad installed, you should be able to use "which pl" to find whether the pl command exists.

Thanks for the reply bkenobi.  Got it figured out.  For some reason, mochad was not starting automatically when the controller is plugged in.  Had to use "sudo mochad".
