MPlab X under Linux: DMCI not showing my serial ports

I can't get the DMCI UI to show my serial port (USB-serial converter: /dev/ttyUSB0). The device works fine with minicom, it's just not being listed.
 
Can I add this device to some config file or how do I have to name it to be found and listed? Thanks!

    It's been two month.... should I assume it's simply not supported?

    Have you asked Microchip Support ?

    No I did not. I for some reason assumed that this forum would also be watched by the official Microchip Support team.
    My bad, I do apologize. I'll contact support and post the response here.

    I contacted support a couple of days ago and hopefully will get an answer shortly.

    I think I figured it out.. or at least one way of solving this issue.
     
    Just rename the device node to ttyS<number>, (e.g. ttyS0, ttyS2). This seems to be the filter, ttyUSB* and alike will not be listed. 
     
    If the support team responds with an easier solution than adding udev rules I'll post it here.

    You are right, just mv /dev/ttyAMC0 /dev/ttyS0 makes it show up. DMCI still not working yet but that's probably a me problem

    I'd use a symbolic link and not move the device node around... but both solutions won't survive a reboot if udev is in use. That would require a change in the udev rules.
     
    DMCI works for me. Some of the controls feel a bit sluggish compared to windows, but it works.
