So, I tried to connect minicom to a serial device that is connected via a USB-to-serial adapter. It's a PL2303. If I'm not wrong, there's no need for additional drivers.
I'm new to this and the following is what I've tried;
$ sudo minicom --device /dev/ttyUSB0
minicom: cannot open /dev/ttyUSB0: No such file or directory
$ sudo lsusb -v
Bus 002 Device 006: ID 067b:2303 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303 Serial Port
$ tail /var/log/syslog #then removed and attached the device.

Am I doing it right??
