Windows Krepelsoftware seems to be running under wine without problems (only rumors, not working for me…)

  1. Create the folder ~/.wine/dosdevices/
  2. Find out which tty your usb/serial adapter shows up as (let's assume it's /dev/ttyUSB0)
  3. Create symlink named com1 in dosdevices (ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 ~/.wine/dosdevices/com1)
  4. Make sure your user has read/write access to the actual tty device

Windows Krepelsoftware

  1. Download Drivers
  2. Install PL2303 Driver
  3. Install Krepelsoftware
  4. Have phun!
