No ttyusb port to connect to arduino.

I install arduino ide on cc-a80 with last image of linaro. I can not connect to arduino, I suppose because there are no usb serial modules installed on the kernel. Is there a easy way to solve this or cc-a80 does not suport Ftdi_sio or other USB serial converter.

Hi, I was solving it in this issue: http://www.cubieforums.com/index.php?topic=3530.0

They forgot to add support for it. You have to adjust kernel config and recompile.

...hit me up if you need more help....I'm playing with Arduino/Xbee...and you :-) ? I'm always interested in those maker projects

SirRibeiro

So you can recognize Arduino on CubiBoard4? How did you do that?
Thanks

cyberluke

Err...I said I have solved in the post above...have you read it? Reply #4 is the solution and Reply #3 provides a solution on how to connect to Arduino in Linux.

Hi,
Yes i've read it, but i can't compile the kernel, I tried it on my PC that has the Ubunutu 14:04 64bit, following the steps on the site, and can create a .img, but when I try to move on to the board never works. Can you please give me only the necessary modules already compiled for cubiboard4?
Thanks

cyberluke

I don't know exact files, it would be too buggy solution. But I can upload the image for you. You have to upload it through that microSD card

i find the new image v1.0

cyberluke

Cool! I don't have time to recompile v1.0 image with ftdi support right now, so I'm uploading 1.8GB image with ftdi (version 0.4 hdmi). Just for your test purposes. Will create the new image next week ;-)

Yes, it's working perfectly, thank you!

I have a USB 1wire adapter, I planned to use OWFS on Linaro to collect temperature. Unfortunately
, Linaro 1.0 does not have usb FTDI driver. The adapter is not visible as ttyUSB. Does anyone have a ftdi_sio module compiled for Linaro 1.0 CB4?

You can  enable kernel_defconfig and build by yourself  ,http://dl.cubieboard.org/model/cc-a80/Doc/ubuntu-linaro/Cubieboard4-Linux-Sdk-Guide.pdf

This was something I tried to avoid. Nevertheless, i will recompile it. Sam, thanks for a link.

Is there possibility to include FTDI support in baseline images? It would save time people like me playing with serial stuff.
