USB device ports


All,

This is hopefully an easy question..

I would like to have my Linux notebook report back to me the port name after I insert a USB connector.

For example, I insert a USB-to-Serial adapter device and linux throws up a message saying "USB device detected on port /dev/ttyUSB0"

Is this possible?

Mint is based on Ubuntu so the answer should be similar.
