There is no device. Is it plugged in and powered up properly?

The device might also be any like /dev/ttyACM*.

Are there any error messages when you type dmesg? To check what is relevant, unplug the device, dmesg, replug it, dmesg, and see what changes. There should be either some messages reported the new device (also giving the device) or error messages.

Hi all. Thank you for your advice! I have solved the problem by following:

I think the main problem is that the port permission is denied, and we could get access by typing the

$ sudo chmod a+rw /dev/ttyACM0

to get access.

Hopefully it also works to you guys:)

This doesn't solve the original problem. If it was a permission problem you would have seen an error message similar to: Permission denied, not No such file or directory.
