Installing FTDI Drivers
In this tutorial we will walk you through installing the FTDI USB-to-Serial driver. This is required to use the Propeller on all wired platforms.
Head over to the FTDI website, and scroll down to the chart under "VCP Drivers" and select the download according to your operating system.
Select the most recent version and start the download (either will download the same zipped file).
After download finishes, open the zipped file.This file will contain both executables for 32- and 64-bit processors. Select the one your computer runs (dpinst-amd64 for 64-bit and dpinst-x86 for 32-bit).
Click "Extract All" when a window pops up to extract the files.
Click "Extract" into a destination. Another window will pop up containing files.
In this popped up window, double click on the same executable from before. Remember to click ""Yes" to allow the program to make changes to your computer.
Follow the instructions until installation is completed.
On Debian, open a terminal and use the "apt" package manager to install to your system.
On Fedora, use the "yum" package manager.
sudo yum install libftdi
