[Nut-upsuser] Ubuntu 10.04 Ultra 700VA UPS Setup Nut

I just bought an Ultra UPS system for my linux server, and I need help
getting it set up. It's an Ultra 700VA UPS.

NUT INFORMATION:  Package (apt-get install nut)
Driver:  I don't have one?

Here's the device information from my syslog:


Jul  7 23:25:27 eric-desktop kernel: [ 3045.609066] usb 2-1: USB
disconnect, address 3
Jul  7 23:25:30 eric-desktop kernel: [ 3049.073041] usb 2-1: new low
speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4
Jul  7 23:25:30 eric-desktop kernel: [ 3049.257903] usb 2-1:
configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Jul  7 23:25:31 eric-desktop kernel: [ 3049.671558] generic-usb
0003:0D9F:0004.0005: hiddev96,hidraw1: USB HID v1.00 Device [POWERCOM
Co.,LTD HID UPS Battery] on usb-0000:00:1d.0-1/input0

Here's my etc/nut/ups.conf file:


# /etc/nut/ups.conf

    driver = powercom
    port = port=/dev/hidraw1
    linevoltage = 120
    manufacturer = Ultra
    modelname = ULTRA 700VA
    type = Trust
    shutdownArguments = {{7,10},y}

Here's what I get when I run sudo upsdrvctl start:


eric at eric-desktop:~$ sudo upsdrvctl start
Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.4.3
Network UPS Tools - PowerCom protocol UPS driver 0.12 (2.4.3)

Unable to open port=/dev/hidraw1: No such file or directory

Things to try:

 - Check 'port=' in ups.conf

 - Check owner/permissions of all parts of path

Fatal error: unusable configuration
Driver failed to start (exit status=1)

I've been following these guides:


/dev/hidraw1 does exist... is this how I'm supposed to configure a USB
connection between my UPS system? What permissions need to be set on

Any and all help is appreciated!
