  • [SOLVED] JLinkExe on Debian does not show device selection dialogue

    Hi,

    I just downloaded the J-Link Software and Documentation pack for Linux, DEB installer, 64-bit in version 6.80 and ran JLinkExe.

    When asked for the device, one can usually enter '?' (without the quotes) to get a selection dialogue. This did not happen here. The connection assistant just continued with the next step and thus the connection failed. ... When I then entered the device by hand, it was able to connect.

    Source Code

    1. Type "connect" to establish a target connection, '?' for help
    2. J-Link>connect
    3. Please specify device / core. <Default>: Unspecified
    4. Type '?' for selection dialog
    5. Device>?
    6. Please specify target interface:
    7. J) JTAG (Default)
    8. S) SWD
    9. F) FINE
    10. I) ICSP
    11. C) C2
    12. T) cJTAG
    13. TIF>s
    14. Specify target interface speed [kHz]. <Default>: 4000 kHz
    15. Speed>
    16. No valid device has been selected.
    17. J-Link>connect
    18. Please specify device / core. <Default>: Unspecified
    19. Type '?' for selection dialog
    20. Device>STM32F412RE
    21. Device "STM32F412RE" selected.
    22. Connecting to target via SWD
    23. [...]
    24. Cortex-M4 identified.

  • Hi,
    Thank you for your inquiry.

    I just gave this a try on Ubuntu 20.04, and everything works as expected on our side:


    Could you please tell us which exact Linux version you are using?

    Best regards,
