Cfclient can't find any radio dongle

Post by panda » Fri Jul 03, 2015 3:11 pm

I am on Archlinux, trying to use cfclient to connect to my CrazyFlie 2.0, using my CrazyRadio PA dongle. I followed the wiki instructions to install cfclient, but it simply doesn't find any CrazyRadio dongle (I get the error "Cannot find a Crazyradio Dongle" if I go to Crazyflie > Bootloader and click on Initialize).

I have configured the udev rules properly, and even if I run sudo cfclient, it doesn't find any dongle. I can however put the dongle on bootloader mode and I have upgraded its firmware to the latest, but yet, cfclient simply can't find any. This is the output from lsusb -d 1915:7777 -v :

It is plugged to a USB 2.0 port. How can I get this to work?

Are you running Archlinux natively or in a VM? If it is a VM, what's the host OS?

Have you tried running the client with sudo? I'm guessing there still is some problem with permissions.

I am running natively and as I wrote in my first post, I have tried running it with sudo. It still doesn't work.

It has been many weeks now, can you please help me out? What could be the problem?

Have you tried using the Crazyradio on a different machine, different OS (e.g. Windows, Android)?
