I haven't had any luck programming with these on any type of Arduino (tried an Uno). I keep getting "avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding" error. I made sure to select the right board type and the programmer is showing up as a serial port.
I've been searching the forums for anyone that has used the type of converter I've bought but I haven't found any topics.
I'm using Ubuntu 12.04. I get blinking lights on the programmer. I know the Arduinos I have are good because I can program them with a FTDI programmer I got from Sparkfun.
Current Setup (I've tried switching tx/rx pins) SERIAL Arduino RST DTR TXD RXI RXD TXO GND GND 5V VCC
Anyone used these before? Anything special you had to do to get these programming?
Thanks for any help!
