A-Star 32U4 Micro problem on Linux


I’m using an A-Star 32U4 Micro with Arduino IDE.
On Windows, everything works fine, including the serial monitor that shows every response from the board. Now i’m trying the same on Linux (Ubunto Mate) and i’m having some problems with serial monitor. Sometimes i get no response at all; sometimes i get only the first char, and others i only get the response when i send another command to the board.

I tryed diferents Baud Rates, but the problem remains.

Does anyone have identical problems with this board on Linux ?


Hello, Nuno.

Other than the operating system, did anything else change between the setup with your Windows computer and now? You need to set the baud rate of the Arduino IDE’s Serial Monitor to match the baud rate of the sketch you are running. If you are still getting the same behavior after changing the baud rates, please provide more details about your setup (e.g. code, pictures, and other devices).
