- Your linux version must have USB support
- Dynamic versions may require lots of libraries: try "ldd t2n" in case of doubt
- Setting rights for USB may be tricky. udev mechanism seems to work well in many Linuces:
- copy 72-lego.rules in "/etc/udev/rules.d" (must be root)
- warning: the ".rules" syntax depends on the udev version: you may have to fix it.
