JLink on Debian Jessie: Connecting to J-Link via USB...FAILED: Cannot connect to J-Link via USB

Hi all,

I have purchased a JLink / JTAG Emulator USB for flashing to embedded devices.
Unitl now, everything works fine on Windows 7.
But as we're mostly working on Linux, I planned to port my scripts to Linux.

The Host Linux is a Debian Jessie 8 (x64), and so I've downloaded the latest versions of JLink (6.16 and today 6.22).
But as I launch JLinkExe, I desperately get the message Connecting to J-Link via USB...FAILED: Cannot connect to J-Link via USB
I tried to install the i386 version and then the x86_64, I tried to change the USB ports, I checked the cables, I tried under "root" user and my own user...same error. ;(

So. I have no more idea.
Any help / suggestion would be highly appreciated.

Thanks.

Best Regards,

Karim

Hello Karim,

Thank you for your inquiry.
The described issue is not known to us.
How did you proceed when installing the J-Link software package on your Linux machine?
Did you follow the instructions in the ReadMe if you installed the software from the .tgz archive?
Are you running Linux in a VM or natively?

Best regards,
Nino
