I have the Targus PA088 USB to RS232 converter, but it seems that it does not work with linux. Its RX and TX lights are flashing, but I can't see the data in minicom/picocom. When using it with Windows and hterm, everything's fine.
Any idea what could be the problem?
Additional info: When I plug in the adapter, I can see the following messages in /var/log/messages.log
