Owing to my mental deficiency I probably really was typing /var/ttyUSB0 in MySamBa, but after much trial and error I concluded entering anything other than com1 is pointless. I am only doing that out of frustration because nothing appears in its dropdown selection - just a blank box. Perhaps that's as it should be?

john@ john-VirtualBox:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID:    Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS
Release:    14.04
Codename:    trusty
john@ john-VirtualBox:~$

I've just checked: MySamba remembers the last serial port used but if I clear that, under Wine it won't offer COM1 automatically in the drop box. If the symlink is set up correctly (~/.wine/dosdevices/com1 => /dev/ttyUSB0), then manually entering COM1 in MySamba should work.

(I don't normally use Ubuntu but I have a 14.04 test system in a virtual machine, so if all else fails, I can replicate what you did to help find the problem.)
