Installation

Hi.

I have a PS2203 and have been using it for some time.
I want to start sing it on my laptop which has Ubuntu on it.
Now I am a bit puzzeled with the instructions.
Could you give me the exact locations of where to find (store) the libs/configs/sources etc.?
When I extract the zipped file I have the impression that the files are in the wrong location.
Needless to say I am a complete newbie to Linux.
Thanx.

Herbert.

What are you looking to do with the device under Linux, and are you able to write your own applications ?

Martyn.

What I wanted to do is write some app to use the 2203 on this machine. But I am not sure whether the hardware is up to the job. I think it is but I will have to trie.
I downloaded the drivers and stuff but can't get them to be installed properly under Ubuntu.
Seems there is some issue with ownership of directories and stuff. I it were more straightforward I could try the examples but even that I can't get to work.
If there was some schematic on where everything should be located it would be easier.
Cheers,

Herbert.

As said : I am quite a newbie to Linux.

Are the attached drivers the ones you are trying to use ?
