Well I.ll try to get assistance for reading the logs.
What I tried last week:
After selecting the language (with assistance) switched to tty2
pidof brltty
showed that brltty was started.
killed it and tried restart:
brltty -b pm -t de

Brltty started but  the brailledisplay did not display something diffeerent :-(.

So I have installed squeeze with sighted assistance.
Now brltty works well.

I.ll try to sent you some logs from brltty next days.
