[chirp_users] New user, and question on diagnosing new radio

On a related note, this radio/cable shows up not as a serial port, but as
HID (human interface device) class. For example, I see this on Linux (from
syslog):

hid-generic 0003:15A2:0073.0001: hiddev0,hidraw0: USB HID v1.00 Device
[FREESCALE SEMICONDUCTOR INC. MCU MOUSE DEMO] on usb-0000:00:14.0-6/input0

Or from lsusb:

Bus 001 Device 006: ID 15a2:0073 Freescale Semiconductor, Inc.


Chirp appears to be expecting only tty ports

   Hello all,

   Call me new to everything - brand new ham (VA7TJL), new Chirp user,
   and have a new radio. I've read docs, but please let me know if the
   questions are too dumb.

   I've picked up a Baofeng DM-5R, V3 as seen here:
   https://www.fleetwooddp.com/products/pre-order-baofeng-dm-5r-v3-2018-digital-dmr-dual-band-amateur-ham-radio
   <https://www.fleetwooddp.com/products/pre-order-baofeng-dm-5r-v3-2018-digital-dmr-dual-band-amateur-ham-radio>
<https://www.fleetwooddp.com/products/pre-order-baofeng-dm-5r-v3-2018-digital-dmr-dual-band-amateur-ham-radio>

   It shows up as BF-5R on the boot screen, but neither that nor DM-5R
   are listed as supported. I did see though that there are other
   Baofeng radios under new and unusual names, that might be supported
   as a variant of one that is known. If there is a way to tell if this
   is the case, I'm open to suggestions.

   The Windows software from the manufacturer does detect and read the
   config from the radio, but the USB device (radio with supplied
   cable) shows up in settings Win 10 settings as, "MCU MOUSE DEMO",
   under the "Bluetooth and other Devices" section. When I try to read
   from the radio in Chirp, there is nothing shown under Ports in the
   drop down. I can select Baofeng as the vendor, and a number of other
   models are listed. Similarly, under Linux (current x64 Mint, based
   on Ubuntu)
   , there is no known port that the software is looking for.

      Ideas?

      Cheers,
      Tim
