  • I tried with this code in the text editor but I got this message, when trying to run it:

    Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/serial/", line 275, in open self.fd =, os.O_RDWR|os.O_NOCTTY|os.O_NONBLOCK) FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/dev/ttyS8'

    During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

    Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/pi/", line 25, in <module> init_serial() File "/home/pi/", line 19, in init_serial #open the serial port File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/serial/", line 278, in open raise SerialException("could not open port %s: %s" % (self._port, msg)) serial.serialutil.SerialException: could not open port 8: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/dev/ttyS8'

    What's the reason for this?

  • I am not using a USB, which means I don't have a COMport, if I understood correctly? Should I just delete this line then?

    I am working with a Raspberry Pi, connected to a GPS module, through 4 cables. I want to get the same mapping system as you, is this possible when working with python in Raspberry?

No public wish lists :(
