USB device connection not storage

  • Hello,

    I have a doubt: I need to connect a USB printer to my board (fsimx6V3.1), do I have to change my device tree?
    Each time I connect the printer to my board, I cannot see any folder like "/dev/ttyUB0". It is not recognised.
    For example, connecting USB storage, shows two folders: sda and sda1, which I can mount. The same as with my SD card,
    that shows two folders: mmcblk2 and mmcblk2p1. I need to send some commands to the USB port.

    Thank you !!

  • USB Printer Support is not enabled in our Linux default configuration. So in Buildroot call make linux-menuconfig, go to "Device Drivers" -> "USB support" and activate entry "USB printer support". Then recompile the kernel and download it to the board. Now the printer should be detected.

    Changes in the device tree should not be necessary.
