Ubuntu Users,

I've tried to subscribe to the J-Pilot mailing list, but despite 
numerous attempts, it doesn't seem to accept me.

So it seems I'm stuck here. Is there anything else I can try?

> None of the other settings seem related to connection.

>>     sudo ln -s /dev/ttyUSB1 /dev/pilot
> $ sudo ln -s /dev/ttyUSB1 /dev/pilot
> ln: creating symbolic link `/dev/pilot' to `/dev/ttyUSB1': File exists
