- Download the CH340 Driver
- Unzip the file
- Run the installer which you unzipped
- In the Arduino IDE when the CH340 is connected you will see a COM Port in the Tools > Serial Port menu, the COM number for your device may vary depending on your system.
Inside the zip file you will find a PDF and a “pkg” file, short version, double click the pkg file, the PDF has some extra information.
See uninstalling information at the bottom of the page if the driver causes problems for you.
Drivers are almost certainly built into your Linux kernel already and it will probably just work as soon as you plug it in. If not you can download the Linux CH340 Driver (but I’d recommend just upgrading your Linux install so that you get the “built-in” one).
