    Connect the adapter to a usb port and type in lsusb console in this way

    $ lsusb and then paste the result here

  • @linuxited the adapter is this: 1d5c:2000

  • @linuxited

    If I know, I’ve tried to find a driver and not defined anything yet, (as you’ve already read), I just found the link at the end of the way you posted. On the other hand there that compile the kernel and other things. For my part I am without ideas. I am sorry.

  • maybe rebooting the machine with everything connected may do the trick…

  • @judd OK! Thanks for trying!

  • @fernandomaroto no, that did not work…

    Update (2017/06/22)
    Fresco Logic recently releases FL2000DX Linux/Android kernel driver source to GitHub , in an attempt to help open-source community to adopt the use of FL2000DX device.


  • @joekamprad They say:

    a. Compile the driver

    Find your kernel source tree, and edit src/Makefile. Locate the following line:

    KERNEL_PATH = /usr/src/linux-headers-4.4.0-72-generic`

    Modify this line so that it points to the correct source tree. After that, run make to create fl2000.ko and run insmod fl2000.ko to load the driver.

    6b. Test the driver

    In the sample folder, run make to create fltest. If you you are using a cross compiler to build the binary for specific platforms, you need to specify that specific compiler in src/Makefile.

    Run ./fltest 0 as superuser to run the test. The driver provides several user mode buffer access methods (e.g copy to kernel internal buffer, or directly locking down user buffer). Look at fl2000_ioctl.h for detailed information.

    I do not know how to do that.

  • they say also:

    2. On which kernel versions does this driver work?

    This driver is tested on Ubuntu 14 LTS as well as some Android platforms with kernel version 3.10.x. This driver source might not compile on newer kernels (eg. 4.0 or above) because of the fast-moving API changes in the mainstream kernel. You might need to adapt it for your own use.

  • @joekamprad OK! Thank you!

  • But you can try anyway 😂

  • @joekamprad to do that needs at least “university” linux knowledge and mine does not even cover “elementary”…

  • I would say it does not need too much knowledge, but ou will neeed to invest time to understand and try and fail… till you get it running… and then it may state as non working at all with current kernel…
