    Hi

    I have problem with LCD module for Linux & my Elastix server.

    1-i make LCD2USB PCB board & all items is ok (test is ok)
    i integrated 20*4 LCD to PCB & i see this message in LCD:
    "LCD2USB V1.09"

    2- i setup LCDProc with down method:

    cd /usr/src
    wget sourceforge.net/projects/lcdproc/files/l….5.5.tar.gz/download
    tar -zxvf lcdproc-0.5.5*
    cd lcdproc-0.5.5
    ./configure -prefix=/usr/ -enable-drivers=all
    make
    make install

    3- i change LCDd.conf with down method :

    DriverPath=/usr/src/lcdproc-0.5.5/server/drivers/
    Driver=hd44780
    User=root

    menu]
    MenuKey=Escape
    EnterKey=Enter
    DownKey=Down

    ConnectionType=lcd2usb

    Keypad=yes
    Backlight=yes
    Size=20x4
    KeyDirect_1=Enter

    KeyDirect_3=Escape

    4- but i have this message after run this command : LCDd -c LCDd.conf

    hd44780: unknown ConnectionType: lcd2usb
    Driver  init failed, return code -1
    Could not load driver hd44780

    LCD2USB devices need the libusb-0.1 library installed, seems like it is not installed.

    6-do have special LCDproc package for CentOS linux(rpm)?

    We do not provide pre-compiled packages for any OS.
