Thanks guys.
Unfortunately, im pretty hazy on how to use terminal with ports, not really sure what im doing!
How would I open a terminal for reading the serial data?

Yup, i got radlog running, and uploading with the gc10 (my only geiger atm), that was nice and easy. Seems like the gc10 is configured ok.

I think id better have a bit more of a read about terminal and serial data.

A ha! i did manage to connect through terminal, using: sudo screen /dev/ttyUSB0
Getting a nice stream of the right kind of numbers!
Still getting the same error running pyradmon.py though.

Can you copy and paste the numbers so we can check? I'm looking for numbers like 24.5 instead of 24.

I'm pretty sure the GC10 only prints whole numbers with no decimals. Both of mine work that way and I don't know of a way to get it to print decimals. I suspect the data is OK from the GC10 and the issue is with PyRadmon.py.

Having a read of the old thread it looks to be an issue with the Pi opening the serial port. Unfortunately I know little about nix and even less of Python. Could do with ThibmoRozier's input if he is about these days?

Yep, it outputs whole numbers
25
24
25
26
Etc

I actually might have got the baud rate wrong.
Changed it to 9600, now pyradmon really wants to go, but can't quite manage it:

Ive come across similar errors in python before. Im not great with programming but i think It can't convert something into an integer. I rember those problems were easy deal with, but i have no idea where this problem is, or what "with base 10: '19\r\n20\r\n'" means.
