I am using Simplicity Studio V4 on a Linux 16.04 x64 VM. Simplicity is fully updated and installed from the README instructions.
I am connecting my Mighty Gecko dev board (part of SLWST6000B) to the VM. Simplicity detects the JTAG connection and lists it in the Device tab. All it says is "JTAG". Simplicity fails to detect the dev board - it doesn't show any Connect Devices.
I have tried restarting the VM, Simplicity and reconnecting the hardware but it fails to detect the hardware type.
Apparently needs to be run with root permissions!
I though I had tried that but evidently not - D'oh!
