You can use pyboard.py from this place: https://github.com/micropython/micropyt ... ster/tools
or rshell: https://github.com/dhylands/rshell
or any of the IDE's that exists, like thonny, if you search in the forum for IDE.

pyboard.py is a pure python script. It should run with python3. What's the error message?
Edit: You migth have to install pyserial:

pip install pyserial

Just to be sure -- if you run

Code: Select all

miniterm.py /dev/ttyUSB0 115200
(which you should have if you've installed pyserial)

then you're able to connect to the REPL?

Does it worl if ouy run pyboard.py or minnterm as sudo? If yes, you have to set the access rights. What is the result of:

ls -l /dev/ttyUSB0

and which Linux version are you using?
