I have also just bought and attempted to connect an iMon LCD device (an UltraBay, that lsusb reads as "Bus 002 Device 004: ID 15c2:0045 SoundGraph Inc." and am having absolutely no luck connecting to my Ubuntu 11.10 machine. Any attempts to start LCDd or similar just report that the IMON kernel module hasnt been installed and that it cannot access the driver [imonlcd].
I tried Hanno's workaround from #3 with no success.
I'm usually not too bad, but with this I'm completely stuck. Is there any information I'm missing? Or has someone found a way of making imon_lcd.ko that works in Oneiric?
