FTDI USB Linux

USB DriverThis is the Linux version of the FTDI USB connector. If you are looking for a Windows version then look here and also here for more information. This Linux driver was released in 2012 and was the last Linux driver released for this hardware.


1. tar xfvz libftd2xx1.1.12.tar.gz

This unpacks the archive, creating the following directory structure:

build
arm926
i386
x86_64
examples
libusb
ftd2xx.h
WinTypes.h

2. cd build/arm926

3. sudo -s
or, if sudo is not available on your system:
su

Promotes you to super-user, with installation privileges. If you’re
already root, then step 3 (and step 7) is not necessary.

4. cp lib* /usr/local/lib

Copies the libraries to a central location.

5. chmod 0755 /usr/local/lib/libftd2xx.so.1.1.12

Allows non-root access to the shared object.

6. ln -sf /usr/local/lib/libftd2xx.so.1.1.12 /usr/local/lib/libftd2xx.so

Creates a symbolic link to the 1.1.12 version of the shared object.

7. exit

Ends your super-user session.
