How to find out USB port path in Ubuntu


Hi Shabeeb,

There are core messages called “kernel” which is the first part of the operating system that is loaded into memory when a computer boots up. To write the core message or “kernel” in Linux and other Unix like operating system, users use the “dmesg command.

In order to find the USB path of your Ubuntu, please follow the following steps:

    Go to the terminal

    Run dmesg | grep usb

If you want to access the serial converter, please do the following steps:

1. Go to the terminal

2. Log in as root

3. Type cd/dev/ttyUSB0 or cd/dev/ttyUSB1

I hope this answers your question.
