I have a
USB to TTL Serial Cable.

On my Arch linux I want to setup a connection through this cable.

How can I achieve this goal?

The output of the 'lsusb' command is:
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 0403:6001 Future Technology Devices
International, Ltd FT232 USB-Serial (UART) IC

I'm trying to follow steps described here:

but I have more difficulties.

1. I can't find to install the 'cu' utility neither on Arch linux
repository nor in AUR.
2. There is no '/dev/ttyUSB0' on my system here.

So eg.
screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200

doesn't work here:
Cannot exec '/dev/ttyUSB0': No such file or directory

I can't find any advices on Arch Wiki.

Any advices will be appreciated!
