I got myself a Microchip Pickit-2 Programmer from a local store. I installed MPLAB release v2.26 from Microchip's website.
However, in this version of MPLAB, it is not detecting my Pickit-2. Hovering over the "Tools" field of MPLAB window indeed reveals that Pickit-2 is not supported, as shown in the attached screen-shot.
I want to ask which version of MPLAB supports Pickit 2? Or, does MPLAB even support it? Should I go for some other software?
FYI, I am running this on Linux.
