Help with WSJT-X v1.7.0-rc1 Ubuntu Mate

Cat control can not see the radio.
FT-897
Ubuntu Mate
HP nc6220 with a builtin serial port (/dev/ttyS0)

Using a signalink for audio and PTT with no problems, can manage ok manually would just like to use the frequency control via cat.

I am familiar with dmesg | grep /dev/ttySxx
and setserial

I have various USB to Serial adapters that also wont work on the above Laptop.

All works ok on other pc Aspire notebook and also Acer netbook running win 10 and XP respectively. Would like to use the old HP as it has the serial port built in and do not really want to run my newer Notebook 24/7. Unfortunately I have lost all the drivers etc for windows on the nc6220 and I am rather fond of Ubuntu. Last resort is to rebuild the HP to Win XP and get a win version of WSJT-X.

BTW same results with FT-817.
