Cannot connect to XDS200 using CCS 10.2 on Linux (Ubuntu 18.04)

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TMS570LC4357

I have an XDS200 which I use together with IAR EWARM connected to my TMS570LC4357 board.

If I move the XDS200 to my Linux system running Ubuntu-18.04

It has a CCS 10.2 installation where I installed all three choices for probes.

Have run ccs1020/ccs/install_scripts/


When I insert the XDS200 in the Linux PC in a USB slot in the backpanel,
I can see that the driver seems to load OK.

$  dmesg:
[235647.855823] usb 2-1.2: new high-speed USB device number 19 using ehci-pci

I then define a target with a TMS570LC43xx and the USB XDS2xx probe

When I test the connection I get the following:

The explanation is:
An attempt to access the debug probe via USCIF ECOM has failed.

There is no "xds2xxu.out" in the installation. There is an

Have tried to run dbgjtag manually with no better result.

What to do?
