I got a Beagle Bone Black recently and this is my first post.
I am trying to setup apcupsd in my BBB to monitor power statues from APC Back UP ES UPS connected through a USB cable.
My BBB is not able to detect the USB connection. I have verified the same setup to be working on a different machine with exact configuration. So I suspect this is an issue specific to BBB.
Im on Ubuntu 12.04 inage that I got from armhf.com
Here is the output of uname -a
Linux ubuntu-armhf 3.8.13-bone30 #1 SMP Thu Nov 14 11:19:20 UTC 2013 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux

Came accross a post in Ubuntu forum that said this may be a issue with Kernel USB support. Im not sure about it.
Can someone please help me with pointes to diagonize this issue.
Thanks in advance.
