How can I know my serial port on ubuntu?

Hi,

I want to use an arduino board to control my application and I need to know the name of the serial port.

I’m using ubuntu 8.10 and I dont know where to find the name of the serial port in which the board is plugged, any idea?

Thanks :smiley:

the arduino ide should tell you what ports are being used but usually it’s /dev/ttyUSB0

you can also list them with:

ls /dev/ttyUSB*

thanks arturo :smiley:
