CP2102 adapter in Linux

How do I verify that CP2102 adapter works in Linux? i am using Ubuntu 11.04 and it should work with this adapter without any extra driver:

i verified that when i connected UM6 (connected to a CP2102 serial to USB adapter) to USB port of a Linux desktop, UM6’s green power LED came on
and /dev/ttyUSB0 appeared in linux desktop.

Is this sufficient to know that the adapter is working without the need for any extra driver?

Thanks in advance!


It sounds like the adapter is working. You could try doing a loopback test. You can use screen to connect to it:

screen /dev/ttyUSB0
