CCSV5.2 for linux and msp430 launchpad, is debug supposed to work?

I'm trying out the beta version of CCSV5.2 on Ubuntu 11.04.  It feels and acts like the windows version except that it doesn't seem to detect my launchpad or my msp-fet430uif.  To get the code to load on the chip I ended up flashing the .out file with mspdebug.  Is debug in CCS for msp430 chips supposed to be working at this point?

Thanks,

    The just released msp430f5529 launchpad includes the new ezFET that works great with linux, CCS 5.5 and above and the opensource libmsp430.so with mspdebug.   Sadly the old version isn't going to be updated. However I'm happy that at least they have addressed this problem going forward.

    Yay!

    This sounds promising, I note the new launchpad is only $13 ... would it be possible to cable across the 2 wire interface from the new emulator to the old launchpad (ie can the ezFET handle the original MSP430G2xxx processors) ?

    Anyone had hands on experience with the new launchpad (presently out of stock) with CCS on a Linux host ?

    Hi rick

    I am trying out the bate version of CCSV5.5 on Ubuntu 12.04,the ./install_devicers.sh I have installed. while I do programming with my launchpad,     msp430f5529.

    always:

    Error initializing emulator:
    No USB FET was found

    Running the command line 'lsusb' program shows this device I want to use:

    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
    Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0451:f432 Texas Instruments, Inc. eZ430 Development Tool
    Bus 003 Device 003: ID 1bcf:0005 Sunplus Innovation Technology Inc.
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 1bcf:2883 Sunplus Innovation Technology Inc.

    it seems Ubuntu knows about the device,

    but how you add a udev entry so that you can use the device.

    besides while I reboot always have a note [17.9.9584]  cdc_acm 3-2:1.0: This device cannot do calls on its own,It is not a modem.

    could you help me ?

    Hi John,

    Is it now supported in 2015 yet or not?

    Thanks.

    ti-designs,

    Which target are you asking about?  Newer MSP430 LaunchPads are supported on Linux.  Ones with the old ez430 interface such as the G2 are not supported and will not be in the future on Linux or MacOS.

    It is important to ensure that you have all the dependencies install as well as to run the driver install script at sudo.

    There are more details here:
