I am trying to use SUN Spots with Ubuntu, but for some reason the SUN Spot Manager app is not seeing connected spot on USB port. Possibility that cdc_acm driver is not installed has been mentioned elsewhere, but I am complete beginner when it comes to Ubuntu, so I don't know where to find it or how to install it.

Any input on this matter would be more than welcome.


ls /dev/tty* returned the list that contains /dev/ttyACM0, but SUN spot is still not recognizing it.

Are you running the sun spot manager app as root? I'd try that if you're not. Also, have you downloaded the SDK at all or are you not planning on getting that deep? –  TryTryAgain Nov 29 '12 at 7:11
connected spot on USB port This is addressing hardware => sudo required. Unless you set permissions on the device to include your user. –  Rinzwind Nov 30 '12 at 5:27
