Hello Everyone, We've recently purchased a new LMS 511 but they have only provided a windows driver version whilst we need the Linux so I'm here to ask if there's a driver for that device on Linux or either way guide through building my won driver using Ethernet RS232 or even USB AS I have seen there's no driver for the 5xx and yet it's the most interesting and it's more powerful and give better results Thanks
