Model 01 not recognized on Linux

Hi there,
currently trying to update the firmware of my newly acquired Model 01 on my laptop running linux mint.
The leds blink ok as I plug the keyboard.
My keyboard doesn’t seem to work as of yet, no input appears on the screen as I type.
I duly installed arduino and configured it according to the wiki pages.
BUT arduino IDE doesn’t seem to detect my keyboard (see screenshot), the Tools > Port section is greyed out.
Any help is greatly appreciated :slight_smile:

Can you run sudo dmesg -Hw, and plug your keyboard in then, and paste the new output here? It might be a cable issue, or power, dmesg should tell us more.

thank you for helping that fast!
after running the command nothing happened. I then twisted the cord a bit and the model got logged…then nothing. I got this model on eBay and the cord looks damaged, so I’m assuming I’d better get another one. Thanks again!
