  • Connect your Serial cable to the adapter.

  • Connect the adapter to your USB port.

  • Enter dmesg | tail into the terminal.

  • There should be a line like:

    [49172.288653] usb 1-2: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now attached to ttyUSB0

  • Open Putty with gksudo putty in the terminal.

  • Select Serial and enter /dev/ttyUSB0 (or similar what you got two steps before)

  • Also don't forget, that your user should be member of the group 'dialout' – andzep Sep 30 '17 at 9:42
