first of all thanks a lot for your effort and contribution to th elinux community
after installing in debian (version 6.0.6 kernel 3.0.56)

I get the error

Hi and sorry for responding so slowly. I've been really busy lately.

It seems, that your device has correct vendor and product ids (0x0e20 and 0x0101 respectively), so that is not the problem. libm210 uses hidraw to communicate with the device. My guess is that your kernel does not have support for hidraw devices. To check if that's the case, please run following to commands:

find /dev | grep hidraw

grep HIDRAW /boot/config-$(uname -r)

Is there any output?

Can you help with this problem?
