I’m quite new to Linux. I’m trying to “talk” with routers*. But I don’t know how to get openSUSE to know USB_UART<->ttyS0<->COM3… or however you get from one end to the other… ttyUSB0?
I installed minicom, but it’s not “seeing” anything. Downloaded CoolTerm but it’s not well documented in Linux. I could not get CoolTerm to run. And for that matter, minicom is a little confusing about set up.
Anyone know of a good how-to/tutorial? I can find lots for WindBlows, but it seems like all the Linux ones I can find ass-u-me you know what you’re doing.
Hi and welcome to the Forum
I use them here to connect to RPi3’s,
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 067b:2303 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303 Serial Port
Add your user to the dialout group via YaST users, you need to logout/login. Once that’s done open a terminal and start minicom. Now press ctrl+a+z keys to pop open the menu, press o for options and then use arrow keys to get to Serial port setup, press enter, again use arrows/lettert to configure (I use /dev/ttyUSB0 for serial device). When done either save setup as dfl so when you start minicom it will use those settings.
