I want to do some serial programming using Python Serial, and all examples I've seen online for USB set the port parameter to "/dev/ttyUSB*" . But on my system, there is no "/dev/ttyUSB*" inspite of there being two USB ports. Has this been renamed to something else recently? My /dev consists a lot of tty device files , how do I identify which corresponds to my usb port?
Sidenote: When I insert a usb stick, dmesg shows its using /dev/sdb. Will using this also work?
