Re: PicKit3 from Lnux
The usual "it works for me" probably will not help you much, but I'm using PK3 and PK4 with IDE and IPE under Linux Mint on a few computers with no major problems.
Your post is missing some details, like what Linux distro are you running, output from lsusb and dmesg after PK3 is connected, whether the pickit is genuine, whether it ever worked on other systems, with different software or another target. Does it detect target power and wrong device signature or nothing at all? Does exhibit PK3 any kind of activity (LEDs)? Are you sure the target is OK?
