    I've just realised that there's a bit more hope for this.

I too left a comment, and emailed the author, Karel Gardas. I didn't
realise until now that Karel had replied to me and answered everyone's
comments within less than 4 hours of my email; all 6 comments were posted
or moderation-approved on the 6th. I'm disappointed with myself for missing
Karel's replies, but nevertheless, at least I can now say that you should
now have the information you asked for. The replies seem to be in depth.

I'm not sure about the hardware access, but Karel seems to have made a lot
of progress in this respect, having a blog about it, and tells me is also
interested in and uses Ubuntu.
    Hopefully you should now be able to solve the problems in the way of
getting this to work. Good luck with your efforts; I'm very enthusiastic to
see if you can solve this!

Best regards,
