I used Hydro on Ubuntu 12.04 i think. Everything just worked when the driver was up and running. I tested it with the test program in the driver folder for the Geomagic Touch device, and it gave the coordinates for the TCP with no complaints

I have it up and running. I found some documentation that stated the connection can be done without connection to the internet, but i could not figure out how, but with the connection it worked.

What i did was to install the driver for the Phantom Omni device. After installing the driver i set up the ethernet ports on my computer. Be sure the computer is on the internet either with cable or wireless. This connection should just be the standard connection setup, Automatic (DHCP) on my pc at least. After that i connected Omni device via the ethernet cable, and went to network connections, the IPv4 settings and set the Method type to Link-Local only. Then opening the configuration executable in the driver folder i could pair the pc and the Omni.

This has been tested, and is working with this ROSnode: https://github.com/danepowell/phantom...
