I purchased a half dozen fake Arduinos hoping to build a bunch of projects without paying a fortune. I have all the drivers installed, and the port shows up in the Arduino IDE. The problem is when I try and upload the code I get the following error:
can't open device "/dev/cu.wch": No such file or directory
I played around a little and tried running:
sudo ln -s cu.wch\ ch341\ USB\=\>RS232\ 1a1220 cu.wch
After running this a new port shows up called
cu.wch, and if I select that it works.
The issue is the Arduino's port is
cu.wch ch341 USB=>RS232 1a1220, but for some reason the IDE is trying to write to
cu.wch. By linking the folders I can fix this but since it is a hack every time I restart my computer I have to rerun the command. Is there a way I can either rename the Arduino port or permanently link the folder?
I am using OSX 10.10 and Arduino IDE v1.6.3
