Apple's Snow Leopard and BT747

Apple's MacOS X 10.6 version that goes under the codename "Snow Leopard" is no longer compatible with the official stable driver for the serial link (RXTX).

The more recent "Beta version" of RXTX has to be referenced and that version is RXTX 2.2Pre.

For the moment, the easiest way to get BT747 working on Snow Leopard is to use the webstart version that is labeled as "BT747 Latest using Rxtx 2.2pre".


First you have to download and install the usb-driver for the logger-device. You can use the universal one from the chip-manufacturer: SiLabs. The second step is a little bit complicated, but has to be done only once. First open the "Terminal" in "Application/Utilities".
