  1. @@energia. Thank you very much. It does indeed say energy trace, so I yes I will wait for a little longer. (I tried sooo many times to get the third update of the programmer ). Thank you all for your replies. I will start with energia to get some general idea and then when I will have more time I think I will try to manage through ccs. Cheers!!
  2. Thanks a lot. I will try this. For me it also updated in ccs. Since I am a newbie what do you guys suggest, try to use energia or ccs? I think energia is easy to use, especially for beginners and you can have some results fast and effortlessly, but ccs is actually offering a lot more deep understanding of how things work. Maybe very hard at first (I uloaded blink and I did not understand the code completely) but after you learn you have better knowledge which can be used for other devices as well. Any tutorials for beginners for me to start working in ccs? I am refering to the programmi
  3. Yes, the green and red leds do toggle for a while when I plug it in. About checking the voltage on the VCC pin, no I have not done that and i don`t know how. I will search on that now but can you also please inform me?
  4. The jumpers are shown in the photo in the link below. I think it is how it was when I got it (I hope i did not mess) https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/109738768/20140726_144401.jpg Today while trying again to update the programmer something changed. I am posting the output below: first time: MSP430_GetNumberOfUsbIfs MSP430_GetNameOfUsbIf Found FET: HID_FET MSP430_Initialize: HID_FET FET firmware update is required.

  5. Nope, I only have the msp430fr5969. nothing else

  8. yes I did choose the correct device both in windows and in linux. Errors, I came across several, but after searching I corrected them. In both OS i got stuck in this error. Thanks for the reply
  9. Hello, I am a complete beginner in controllers. I just got my first one (MSP430FR5969). After I watched some tutorials I tried to start playing with it. I downloaded and installed everything it was saying in TI site and three days later i have not been able to do absolutely nothing. When I am trying to upload an example sketch or update programmer i get the error: tilib: MSP430_OpenDevice: Unknown device (error = 5). tilib: device initialization failed I was initially trying in Ubuntu 14.04 64 (2 days) and today I have been trying in win 7 64. In both operating systems i get stuck at
  10. ...I am Thodoris writing from Switzerland and just 3 days ago I was given as a gift my first controller. MPS430FR5969. The initial excitement turned to complete disappointment since after three days i haven been able to upload anything. Neither from Ubuntu nor on Windows. I will try to find the correct section and post my problem. Congrats for the site.
