Question Establishing serial port communication between PC and Launchpad in Linux

Hello Everyone !!!

I am new to Ubuntu and I need to establish a serial port communication between my PC and microcontrller MSP430G2452.

On connection the USB available with the Launchpad, and using lsusb

it identifies the port as

Bus 005 Device 003: ID 0451:f432 Texas Instruments, Inc. eZ430 Development Tool

So, please tell me, after establishing such connection what I need to do . My aim is to send a byte of information in Linux.

Hope I am clear enough.Please post in case if you have some doubt regarding my question.

Any help will be appreciated..

Further details about my query

On using (dmesg | grep tty) to find out the details of COMPORT establisation, it returned with

[ 1178.254634] cdc_acm 5-1:1.0: ttyACM0: USB ACM device

On trying to establish serial port communication using

setserial -g /dev/ttyS[ACM0], it said UNKNOWN UART

/dev/ttyS0, UART: unknown, Port: 0x03f8, IRQ: 4

Can anyone solve my problem now ??
