How to kill a stalled BT747 in Mac OSX

I’m 99% of the way there with my Holux talking nicely over bluetooth to my mac via the Version 1.60.11 of the BT747 software all thanks to this terrific instructions over at trick77.com.

My problem comes with trying to shut BT747 down. If it hangs or seems to hang I try to quit it but no matter what I have a waba.applet.Applet icon in my dock and no force quitting will get rid of it till I reboot. Once this has happened, there is no way to reconnect to the Holux until I’ve rebooted.

Is there some Java magic I need to know?

BT747 Desktop with Holux M-241?

This doesn't work for me on my macBook Pro, with Holux M421. I execute BT747 Desktop (v1.61.3). It starts up fine, and looks great! I select "Bluetooth (for Mac)", speed 38400, and press "connect". No connection. The error message is

  • Info: trying to open /dev/cu.SLAB_USBtoUART

  • gnu.io.NoSuchPortException.

It looks like it doesn't try the holux port /dev/tty.HOLUX_M-241-SPPSlave-1.

Is BT747 Desktop supposed to work with the Holux? bt747_macosX.command is working for me.

Thanks for any help.
