Cannot upload file (first time user)

Recommended Posts


It's my first time using Energia and I am trying to figure out what the error is I got when I tried to upload the Blink code onto my MSP430G2553.

I followed the steps in the installation guide, activated the TI udev rules, and tried restarting the computer.

This is the error I got:

Energia: 1.8.11E23 (Linux), Board: "MSP-EXP430G2 w/ MSP430G2553"

Does anyone have a solution to this? Please let me know and thanks!

Pretty sure this is a bug as I have the same issue.

When I go into /tmp/arduino_build_xxx/ the Blink.ino.hex file is there.  If I manually run msdebug I can upload the hex file to the launchpad.

When I download the previous version of energia, this issue goes away.  So pretty sure the problem is in the 1.8.10E23 release only.
