[time-nuts] Prologix, Linux and bash

Hi Everyone

I know that my Prologix device is functioning thanks to Ulrich's EZGPIB.

I however want to use this device under Linux. My Ubuntu box cannot find 
/dev/ttyUSB0 but a Mepis Linux live CD can.

I have tried the following commands:
echo ++auto 0 CR > /dev/ttyUSB0
echo ++auto 1 CR > /dev/ttyUSB0
echo ++auto 0 \r > /dev/ttyUSB0
echo ++auto 1 \r > /dev/ttyUSB0
echo ++auto 0 \n > /dev/ttyUSB0
echo ++auto 1 \n > /dev/ttyUSB0
echo ++auto 0 \r\n > /dev/ttyUSB0
echo ++auto 1 \r\n > /dev/ttyUSB0

I have not been able to switch the led on from talk to listen.

Could someone give me a bash sample of the correct syntax to use?

Thanks in advance-Patrick
