Description

This is the Ubuntu 18.04 .deb package converted to snap, because in Ubuntu 20.04, there is no ckermit package. Just as I did with Gnash. See https://raymii.org/s/blog/Ive_packaged_up_CKermit_as_a_snap_for_Ubuntu_20.04.html for more info on the snap, and https://www.kermitproject.org/ for more info on kermit. The snap source code is here: https://github.com/RaymiiOrg/ckermit-snap

This is not an official kermit-project package.

C-Kermit is a combined network and serial communication software package offering a consistent, transport-independent, cross-platform approach to connection establishment, terminal sessions, file transfer, file management, character-set translation, numeric and alphanumeric paging, and automation of file transfer and management, dialogs, and communication tasks through its built-in scripting language.

The Kermit Project originated at Columbia University in New York City in 1981 and remained there for 30 years. Since 2011 it is independent.

Setup

In order to access a serial port over USB (ttyUSB0 for example, you need to add your user to the dailout group and connect the snap to the raw-usb socket.

Open a terminal window, run the following commands an reboot your computer.

sudo usermod -a -G dialout $USER

sudo snap connect ckermit-raymii:raw-usb

Now restart your computer and you're good to go!
