I loved ubuntu, at first. i also love printers and my music equipment. It took a serch of 24 printers, four purchases before I got a printer that it had a driver for.It still won't scan...
I have downloaded a driver, after a long search, for my line6 guitar signal processor.
In have spent hours trying to decipher the indtructuions which require knowledge of perl and the control panel,
here are the instructions:
The cleanest way to install the driver is to build and install an RPM package.
This takes care of removal of old versions and proper loading of the driver.
Type the commands
rpmbuild -tb line6usb-0.8.1.tar.bz2
rpm -U /usr/src/packages/RPMS/i586/line6usb-0.8.1-1.i586.rpm
The second command requires root privileges. You might need to change the path
if you are using a system different from SuSE for the i586 platform.
If you are not familiar with RPM or prefer manual compilation, you can use the
following procedure. Unpack the archive, change to the newly created directory,
and compile/install the driver:
tar xjf line6usb-0.8.1.tar.bz2
This will compile the driver and install it in the module directory, so the
driver should be loaded automatically as soon as the Line6 device is connected.
If it doesn't, you can load it manually with
You need root privileges to install and manually load the driver.
When I tried to build the RPM using perl in the control panel. it did. But when i tried to use it it said bad address and said to use "alien" to install drivers.
I installes "alien". It appears nowhere.....I don't know what I was supposed to do after it installed...
the other commands only get "bad address".when i do
cd /home/any other folder
gets error message
