Hi all. I don't know how many of you have Midisport (M Audio) USB MIDI devices, like the Midisport Uno, 1X1, 2X2, etc. but those of you that have one may have noticed that, after installing the midisport-firmware package, it won't load. If this is the case, edit your /etc/udev/rules.d/*-midisport-firmware.rules (the "*" is for a number; in my machine is 42, but it may be different on your machine) as root, and replace it's contents with the following: # midisport-firmware.rules - udev rules for loading firmware into MidiSport devices # MidiSport 1x1 ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="usb*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0763", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1010", RUN+="/sbin/fxload -s /usr/share/usb/maudio/MidiSportLoader.ihx -I /usr/share/usb/maudio/MidiSport1x1.ihx -D %N" # MidiSport 2x2 ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="usb*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0763", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1001", RUN+="/sbin/fxload -s /usr/share/usb/maudio/MidiSportLoader.ihx -I /usr/share/usb/maudio/MidiSport2x2.ihx -D %N" # KeyStation ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="usb*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0763", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1014", RUN+="/sbin/fxload -s /usr/share/usb/maudio/MidiSportLoader.ihx -I /usr/share/usb/maudio/MidiSportKS.ihx -D %N" # MidiSport 4x4 ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="usb*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0763", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1020", RUN+="/sbin/fxload -s /usr/share/usb/maudio/MidiSportLoader.ihx -I /usr/share/usb/maudio/MidiSport4x4.ihx -D %N" # MidiSport 8x8 ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="usb*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0763", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1031", ATTRS{bcdDevice}=="0110", RUN+="/sbin/fxload -s /usr/share/usb/maudio/MidiSportLoader.ihx -I /usr/share/usb/maudio/MidiSport8x8-2.10.ihx -D %N" ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="usb*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0763", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1031", ATTRS{bcdDevice}=="0121", RUN+="/sbin/fxload -s /usr/share/usb/maudio/MidiSportLoader.ihx -I /usr/share/usb/maudio/MidiSport8x8-2.21.ihx -D %N" # vim: ft=conf After that, the interface should load without problems. Here is a post on ubuntuforums.org with more information about it: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=96506&highlight=midisport Hope this helps someone out there, and helps 64 Studio developers in correcting this issue.

Ops! I don't know what I did, but the formatting on my previous post is all messed up (I think it has to do with the asterisks and pound signs on the code...) Just go to the link provided and you'll find clear instructions on the matter: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=96506&highlight=midisport
