Installing linux drivers pololu jrk 21v3


Where can I find drivers for LINUX Pololu jrk 21v3?
I just found drivers for windows.



Hello, Carlos.

The jrk does not require any drivers in Linux. After you configure it using the Jrk Configuration Utility on a Windows machine, you can plug it in and send commands to its virtual COM ports in Linux. They are usually named /dev/ttyACM0 and /dev/ttyACM1. Alternatively, if you want some C# code that uses libusb-1.0 and works in Linux, check out our Pololu USB SDK:



By the way, there are two ports for the jrk21v3, which in Linux you already wrote their names
Nevertheless, this ports are arbitrary interchanged, I do not not if this is an issue concerning pololu drive, GNU/Linux or both… Any idea how to solve it?



You might consider using the serial port names found in /dev/serial/by-id instead; those names should be stable and always point to the same serial ports on the jrk.
