I'm trying to get the boblight windows version working but I'm struggeling with problems that I can't identify. I have an Adalight setup (50leds, Arduino Uno) like some other people in this forum. It works pretty well with that Lightpack software but those who are able to run boblight prefer boblight. I want that too.
In my case, the com-port seems to be correct but I don't know if I should ignore the first error message or not. Using /dev/ttyS0 isn't working either. Same error message. If I change the com-port I'll get "No such file or directory", so it's not the port. It's really com1 btw.
Any of the boblight windows users here, who can give me some help?
Here is my boblight.conf setup:
#config file for adalight from http://www.ladyada.net/make/adalight/
prefix 41 64 61 00 18 4D
debug off #turn this on to see what it's doing with the serial port

and so on...
