Compile Driver for Linux (Raspberry Pi)

The following tutorial is made for Raspberry Pi running the Raspbian operating system.


1. Ensure your Rasberry has network connectivity and install the following prerequisite packages:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install git raspberrypi-kernel raspberrypi-kernel-headers can-utils

2. Clone Korlan USB2CAN driver repository:

git clone
cd usb2can

3. Compile and install the driver:

sudo make install
sudo depmod -a

Important note. Reconnect the USB2CAN device into the USB port.

4. Reboot host device

sudo reboot

5. The can0 interface should now be available. You can test the adapter with these commands:

sudo ip link set can0 type can bitrate 125000
sudo ip link set can0 up

Info and Error LED on Korlan USB2CAN will turn green once interface is brought up.
