I am trying to install CCS 5.2 (beta) in Ubuntu for MSP430 microcontrollers following the installation instruction hat comes with the download. However I noticed during installation the "Select Emulators" window does not have the FET Emulator to select as the emulator I wanted.
The installation goes through and I can compile the code; however I cannot flash it to msp430 as it did not find the USB FET driver.
Alternatively I don't see the install_drivers.sh file under install_script/ folder as mentioned in the README_FIRST instruction file.
Am I missing anything in the installation process? Do I have to install the USB FET driver separately? If so where shall I get a driver for Linux which I can try out?
Thanks -Abhijit Das
In reply to Francis Zarzour:
Thank you so much for this excellent post! I have followed the directions successfully but when I run mspdebug <my_out_file>.out, I get an error "unknown driver". So I typed mspdebug --help and got this back:
Available drivers are: rf2500 eZ430-RF2500 devices. Only USB connection is supported. olimex Olimex MSP-JTAG-TINY. olimex-iso Olimex MSP-JTAG-ISO. sim Simulation mode. uif TI FET430UIF and compatible devices (e.g. eZ430). uif-bsl TI FET430UIF bootloader. flash-bsl TI generic flash-based bootloader via RS-232 gdbc GDB client mode tilib TI MSP430 library
I created /etc/udev/rules.d/46-TI_launchpad.rules as you described, and changed the " in the post to actual quotes. Any suggestions? I feel like I am very close!
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

O the Embarrassment. Please ignore the above post.
I apologize. I typed mspdebug rf2500 as you clearly instructed and got the interface. This allowed me to load and run my code successfully on the rf2500.
This worked for me in CCS 5.2 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Many thanks, John
