Thanks GraemeBut I will wait untill the next release as I don't know anything about compiling any source codes.

Simple enough to fix in the next release. If you're compiling from source change line 284 of spectro/ss.c from: || strcmp(devn, "Spectrolino") != 0) to || strncmp(devn, "Spectrolino",11) != 0) and see how it goes. thanks for the feedback.
