Which bldc tool for linux new enertion vescs


#1

So, now I have everything in place, and when I click on the links to Vedder’s downloads it all looks Japanese to me, I do not know what the hell to click on… Can someone help please :slight_smile:


#2

Try Jacob’s site. It’s a little more intuitive. If you don’t want to deal with terminal in ubuntu, go that route


#3

so damn confusing… So I downloaded bldc onto another laptop because I have linux on mine, and I plug the vesc in, and I got nothing…


#4

I would like to try on Linux. Can anybody help me download the right bldc tool?


#5

just clone the github repo and compile it


#6

Ok, cool, now I have the BLDC tool on my screen, I turned on the Vesc, plugged it in to the computer, and nothing… It is like the computer does not even see the vesc…


#7

The only mini usb I have at the moment is the charging cable for the Enertion controller, I wonder if this is a power only cable?


#8

that may be the case.
i would buy one to be sure.


#9

Not all OS’s have the driver for VESC’s usb device; you may need to install it.


#10

Now I am back to linux…how do I install drivers??


#11

Tried a different cable, when I plug it into the computer nothing happens, can anyone help?


#12

What are you using to power the VESC while the cable is plugged in?


#13

space cell…


#14

voltage could be too high or something?


#15

should I cut my laptop power cord and splice it to power the Vescs? 19.5v it looks like


#16

I don’t think so. Are there any lights on on your vesc?


#17

somehow I got it to connect, I do not know what I did… I just tried it again, and it worked…


#18

It was probably your linux that needed a virtual COM port to be configured (driver install)
