Sorry I am just now getting back.  No I have not disappeared, just got busy.

So I tried the recommendations below, and I have not come to a resolution. I did not see an error in the log file for USB. I am not sure what to do next. I have considered just trying to load a different linux distribution or reloading Ubuntu, but I am not ready to do that yet.

Also, I know I will probably catch flak for this question, but is it possible to load the dev environment in Windows?


P.S.  I can not be there tonight.  Still a little busy.


Thanks all for recommendations. I will take a look this week. Also, I will not be there this Tuesday.


Quoting Kenny <>:

apt-cache show openocd on my 12.04 system shows support for "USB FT2232
based dongles" including the "Olimex ARM-USB-OCD".

Jason, do you get any errors in /var/log/syslog when you connect USB?
Have you checked the device file for permissions issues?  Maybe you need
to add yourself to the dialout group in order to access /dev/ttyUSB0.
If this is the case sudo adduser `whoami` dialout, then log out and log
back in.  Group membership and related permissions are inherited from
your existing login session.  (You can also su - `whoami` to freshen
permissions for a given shell.)

I'm pretty sure the issue is that openocd wasn't built with the
--enable-ft2232-libftdi configure flag. To fix you'll have to compile
it yourself.

Make sure you have libftdi-dev (sudo apt-get install libftdi-dev) and
download the openocd source code (Sourceforge link).
Once you have it extracted, run
./configure --enable-ft2232-libftdi
make install

       The OS is Ubuntu 12.04 on a Macbook with a Intel® Core?2 CPU

       I tried running the updates, reinstalling, etc.  Also, K had
       taken a look and not found anything.

       Has anyone else seen anything like this?  Right now I am
       considering trying another OS, perhaps Debian.  I admit I am
       not that knowledgeable about Linux, so I get bogged down
