    CTC Bizer communications problem

    Working on a CTC Bizer, dual extruder printer at the local makerspace.
    Prints OK from SD card but I can't get a USB connection to work.

    I'm planning to use Octprint on a Raspberry Pi but it won't make a USB connection.
    Running a 'dmesg' command on Linux shows the correct USB port that the printer is connected to and that the device (printer) is a Makebot 1 running Relicator and a serial number. Ths shows that the USB is initialising OK
    I've even tried connecting to the printer via a terminal program but no response that way either. Baud is set to 9600 on connection. Tried at 11500 as well with same result.

    I'd like to upgrade the firmware but obviously need a USB connection to work first.

    I may have solved this one. A bit of reading shows that I must be using x3g protocol on the USB link otherwise I'll get no response (true?)
    There may have been a GPX configuration issue on the RPi that prevented it working.

    If I'm off on a wrong track here, please correct me!
