Hello all,
I'm trying to use my PCSGU250 oscilloscope with Mint 17 / Cinnamon 64bits.
It used to work well with XP but I had to change my old computer and now I choosed Linux.

1/ I tried first to use it with Wine, but unfortunately could not manage, as I read on several forums that nobody found the proper way. The software pclab2000lt runs on demo mode, but the blue light would never light up... So if anyone has a solution for that, I'll take it, thanks in advance.

2/ Anyway I read that it was possible to make it run successfully with XP on VirtualBox . So I installed this (quite heavy) package. But I get the same issue: only Demo mode is OK but no blue light. When I install the driver (pcsgu250_winusbdrv2.zip giving when extracted : MCHPWinUSBDevice_v2.inf and 2 dir: amd64 & i386), I get the message :
"This device cannot start (code 10)", although the hardware manager sees the device on USB .
Of course I tried to disconnect/connect a hundred times, tried to download the last driver from Velleman site, installed again, but no way.

So any solution would be very welcome, thanks.
Regards
Gerard

Reading Gersei's thread I am supporting his wish to have the possibility to install the USB scopes software also on
one or more Linux operating systems. There is a growing number of electronics designers who are no longer running their
computers using a version of Windows. So it must be of interest for Velleman to have software available for
at least one popular Linux system like Linux Mint or Ubuntu.
I also tried to run the software on Wine without success.
Thanks.

I read somewhere on this forum that this driver:

PCSGU250Driver
Version: is 1.0.0.6
Dated:12/19/2007

is worth being tried; Could someone tell me from where I can download it ?

Thanks in advance

Got it !

the problem comes from the USB management on VirtualBox; for anyone facing this kind of problem, I would recommend this link: https://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/virtualbox, §4.6
After the installation of the extension package, you have to activate USB2 in the parameters of VirtualBox.
Launch XP, then USB available devices appear with a right clic on the usb icon on the VBox machine, under the WinXP window... You just have to select the Velleman ...

So at the end of the day, the oscilloscope can run !!
