Using linux serial port not called ttyUSB?

0 votes
I am running the new xctu for linux desktop (great sw, thanks). I want to search for xbee modules but the port selection only includes /dev/ttyUSB0, /dev/ttyUSB1, and /dev/ttyUSB2. But my xbee is on port /dev/xbee.

I created a symlink called /dev/ttyUSB3 than pointed to /dev/xbee but it still didn't show up in the list. So the list must not be based on names in /dev, or it is ignoring symlinks.

Is there an easy way to fix this problem? Or should I take the trouble to kill the /dev/xbee port and make a real /dev/ttyUSB3 port?

It does not appear to pick up on symbolically linked devices. You can however us the option to "provide a port name manually".
