Hi,

I'm trying to display text on my matrix orbital LK204-7T-1U-USB-WB
(which is connected via usb) which is connected to a raspberry
pi (powered by an externaly powered usb hub).
http://www.matrixorbital.ca/manuals/LK_Series/LK204-7T-1U/LK204-7T-1U%20%28Rev2.0%29.pdf

Version of the package: 0.5.5-2

/etc/LCDd.conf is (shortened):
[server]
DriverPath=/usr/lib/lcdproc/
Driver=MtxOrb
Bind=127.0.0.1
Port=13666
ReportLevel=3
ReportToSyslog=yes
User=nobody
Hello="owner:"
Hello="m at vanheusden.com"
Hello=""
Hello="Starting up..."
GoodBye="Going down!"
GoodBye=""
GoodBye="owner:"
GoodBye="m at vanheusden.com"
WaitTime=1
ToggleRotateKey=Enter
PrevScreenKey=Left
NextScreenKey=Right

[MtxOrb]
Device=/dev/ttyUSB1
Size=20x4
Type=lkd
Contrast=480
hasAdjustableBacklight=no
Brightness=1000
OffBrightness=0
Speed=19200
keypad_test_mode=no


The commands I send are:

hello
client_set -name ows
screen_add ows0
screen_set ows0 1 -name OWS -wid 20 -hgt 2 -priority foreground -heartbeat
off -duration 127 -timeout 127 -cursor off
widget_add ows0 line1 string
widget_add ows0 line2 string
widget_set ows0 line1 1 1 " "
widget_set ows0 line2 1 1 " "
widget_set ows0 line1 1 1 " "
widget_set ows0 line1 1 1 " #S: -1, DB: -1.0"
widget_set ows0 line1 1 1 " #S: -1, DB: -1.0"
widget_set ows0 line1 1 1 " #S: 00, DB: -1.0"
widget_set ows0 line1 1 1 " #S: 00, DB: -1.0"
widget_set ows0 line1 1 1 " #S: 00, DB: -1.0"

all return "success" but nothing is shown.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong here?

Note that the other texts (the "Hello" of the config. file and the
number of connected users) ARE shown.
