Re: usb to serial adapter please help
What does lsusb (like list usb) show for the device. Maybe someone would recognize it from that and offer more help.
I have a USB to serial cable that Linux seemed to automatically recognize, but don't remember if I actually used it in Linux to access a 15+ year old Garmin GPS 45 because I don't think the Linux gps programs had a way to set that slow of a baud rate (9600 baud). I did download its waypoints with the Windows Garmin Map program.
i5 650 3.2 GHz, 8 GB, nvidia GTX 550 Ti 32" 1080p | i7-4700, 8 GB, Intel HD 4600/nvidia GTX 765M 15.6" 1080p | etc.
