Linux Driver Notes

MagicQ on Linux

We recommend that only users familiar with Linux based operating systems try to use MagicQ under Linux. We cannot provide generic support on how to set your system up, but there are many forums and communities online which will be able to.
To install MagicQ on Linux based systems, we recommend a Debian based operating system, either Debian Wheezy, or Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
To use MagicQ Wings and MagicQ Interfaces Linux requires the ftdi_sio kernel driver which is included as part of most standard kernel installations.
There are two ways to install MagicQ, either through an apt repository, where you can get automatic updates, or by manually downloading the installer.
To install using the repository to your system, run the following command to add our public key to your apt keystore
`wget http://repo.magicq.co.uk/magicq.co.uk.gpg -qO - | sudo apt-key add -` 
Then add the following line to the bottom of your /etc/apt/sources.list file:
Update your package list in apt by running `apt-get update`, then you can install MagicQ by running 'apt-get install magicq'. If you wish to follow our beta release channel, then use `apt-get install magicq-beta` instead.

To run MagicQ, simply goto your launcher menu, and select "MagicQ". Currently MagicQ will need root permissions to run to be able to access any USB interfaces.
