I need to use the CP210 driver for the Arduino IDE on my ubuntu 16.04. I initially tried to install the driver but were getting lots of errors but I believe the driver is actually already installed
ls -al /lib/modules/"$(uname -r)"/kernel/drivers/usb/serial/cp210x.ko -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 59126 Oct 15 18:24 /lib/modules/4.15.0-122-generic/kernel/drivers/usb/serial/cp210x.ko
I guess it might be a communication issue but I am not sure how to fix this. When I plug in my board the Arduino IDE shows /dev/ttyUSB0 (Silicon labs) as serial port but my code doesn't work and suggests a problem with the board driver. The arduino documentation says I need ‘dev/tty.usbserial-0001 (Silicon Labs)’ or ‘COM3 (Silicon Labs)’ and need to download a CP210 driver
Any help greatly appreciated !
