The 2206a is supported in Linux, and we do have our own Picoscope 6 software that will control it.

Please go to http://www.picotech.com/linux.html to download the correct drivers and example code from our respository.

Thanks, I had the correct drivers, but hadn't found correct SDK

I am trying to build the CConsole programming example under a Red Hat/Fedora system with gcc, and the program requires

#include "linux_utils.h"
which implies a locally supplied definition file, though this is not in the SDK zip file (PS2000asdk_r10_5_0_32.zip)
nor is it part of the linux distribution.
Commenting this line out leaves me with many pages of errors and warnings.
There are also mismatches between the .h files installed in /opt/picoscope with libps2000a(.so.2)
eg ps2000aAPI.h calls PicoStatus.h but the SDK supplies picoStatus.h

PS2203 built quite easily, but the with the 2000A series code, I'm getting nowhere fast :-(

please look in /opt/picoscope/share/doc/libps2000a

there should be an example console program "PS2000Acon.c"
