Show the output of "lsusb -v" for this device, and I might be able to write them.

Okay, we knew that ...


          Transfer Type            Bulk
          Synch Type               None


... but this means that this device does not even use any of the USB-defined synchronization mechanisms but uses its own.

 

Writing a driver for this device would require information from M2Tech.

I requested information from M2Tech regarding the Linux driver a couple of weeks ago.  They indicated that they were working on it, but do not currently have anything ready to distribute.   Hopefully it won't be too long now :-/

The day they have a linux driver, I believe I would be compelled to buy me one!

 

Glad to hear it's in the pipe!

I dont know about that....I have been asking them for just about a year now.  After a series of un-answered emails I finally got this back.

 

I am patiently waiting but cautiously pessimistic.

The driver has been merged into the upcoming 3.11 kernel.
