I want to use a Windows based scan tool under Wine on Ubuntu 14.04. I'm following these instructions to get it set up, but when I try to create the symbolic link ( step 7 ) I get an error:
ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 /dev/ttyS0 ln: failed to create symbolic link ‘/dev/ttyS0’: File exists
I want to access the USB device via a COM port like COM1.
In the Wine documentation, it says simply to make a direct link to the USB device:
ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 ~/.wine/dosdevices/com2
