Installing the Xilinx Cable Drivers under Ubuntu

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

Each time I install Xilinx ISE under Ubuntu – and that happened a few times in the last months – I wonder how to get the Cable Drivers working so I can program my Spartan3E Starter Board. Although there seems to be an official Linux support, Cable Drivers do not work per default after installation. There’s a very useful link describing the process, and it works really fine for me. I bookmarked it lately and want to share, so other people can find this recipe more easily:

It worked fine with ISE 13.1 and Ubuntu 10.10 for me.

Good luck!
