ofArduino and Firmata with Adafruit Bluefruit EZ link won't fire init

I’m having trouble getting Firmata to connect, using an Adafruit Bluefruit EZ Link. I’ve done it many times using the same setup in Processing but for some reason even though the console reports:

ofSerial: opened /dev/cu.AdafruitEZ-Link6771-SPP sucessfully @ 57600 bps

The EInitialized never gets fired.

Anyone have any ideas why it should work great in Processing but not in oF?

Managed to get it working. Following a tip on this forum, I added

arduino.sendFirmwareVersionRequest();

just after the connect call and it seemed to do the trick, though it didn’t work automatically every time so I put a keypress in to reinit just in case. That seemed to get it to work.
