Yes, true ! the file has been generated.

I made this change too but always the same problem, no braille support !
Others things I tried :
-made a link between /etc/brlapi-key and /etc/brltty/brlapi-key because
in the gnopernicus explanations found in the brltty package it is
indicated that the brlapi-key must be in /etc/brltty
- add the user nath to the dialout group in order that nath can be able
to access the /dev/ttyS0 device

Below the error gnopernicus returns :

error opening brlapi connection
brl_open_device: open device failed
** BRAILLE initialization failed for BRLTTY on port 1

I don't understand what can cause the problem. did I forget to do
something else ? Thx,
