I am trying to install FTDI D2XX drivers from this site following the instructions on this page. So I download and extract the 1.4.6 version for linux-64. When I try to use the "make -B" command as described in 3.1 of instructions I get a fatal error :
make1: Entering directory '/home/bagjohn/Dropbox/software/libftd2xx-x86_64-1.4.6/release/examples/loopback' cc main.c -o loopback -Wall -Wextra -lftd2xx -lpthread -lrt -Wl,-rpath /usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/lib main.c:22:10: fatal error: ftd2xx.h: No such file or directory #include "ftd2xx.h" ^~~~~~~~~~ compilation terminated. Makefile:9: recipe for target 'loopback' failed
the file "ftd2xx.h" exists in the parent directory and before trying the loopback directory the make has entered and exited other folders with the same command, includind this file, and no error occured.
I've tried this on two different Linux-64 distributions (Debian and Mint) and the error is the same. I didn't find any mention of a corrupt file on the net.
ElecGuru.exewhich is a
PE32 executable (GUI) Intel 80386, for MS Windows. So far I cannot see how that should run on Linux. Maybe you can get better infos in Olimex's IRC channel. I think it is: irc://irc.freenode.net/olimex
/dev/ttyUSB<NUMBER>should appear automagically. The question where the needed software for Linux hides still remains...
