I am running Ubuntu for the first time by booting from a USB drive. Now I have plugged in a USB-to-serial converter which has been recognized and automatically added as
How do I access
Use one of screen's lesser known features:
busybox microcom -t 5000 /dev/ttyUSB0
You can use putty. Its an ssh/serial/telnet client for Windows and Linux. You can download it from http://linux.softpedia.com/get/System/Networking/PuTTY-347.shtml
you can use ckermit also. It should be in the repository. After installing it create a file in your home directory called
.mykermrc then add the 5 following lines:
set line /dev/ttyUSB0 set flow-control none set carrier-watch off set speed 115200 connect
parameters can be adjusted as necessary.
save the file.
to start it
You could use tio - a simple tty terminal I/O application:
I was using puTTY to connect to the serial ports. But don't forget to add your user to dialout:
sudo adduser <username> dialout then reboot the system.
After that, you can use puTTY for serial connections such as
Needed Mint 17.1 to talk to my Arduino, after a little chasing around, the best way I found was to either:
sudo gedit /etc/group
add your "username"
Administration - Users & Groups - Manage Groups
goto line "
dialout" check properties to ensure that "username " is ticked if not "username" must be added.
This worked for me and by the look of lots of posts others have had the same problem. Hope this helps guys.
You can use picocom, it is a minimal dumb-terminal emulation program. Basic usage is something like this (change 11520 to the desired baud rate):
$ picocom -b 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0
You have all the options you may want from a dumb-terminal program, like stop bits, parity, local echo, carriage return / line feed / backspace / delete / tab translation, X/Y/Z-modem and ASCII transfer integration, etc.
man picocom and
picocom --help for further information.
Using Lucid and a Dynamode USB to RS232 cable:
Plugged it in ran kermit set line /dev/ttyUSB0 <<-- mind the capitals/lowecase connect set speed 9600 ...
and successfully connected to an RS232 port on an OpenVMS server.
