How to install a Line6 Guitar Port (and the toneport With a very big thanks to Myhrman from Source Forge for helping me get this thing working and a big thanks to Grabner for providing the drivers for something that seems to be non existant for linux! This is to get the Guitar Port to work as a basic USB sound device so you will get a dry signal in and out that will work under OSS and Jack.

Note: Myhrman says it should work with most toneports too but neither of us have one to test it out.

First open your Terminal

Applications> Accessories> Terminal

You will need to get Subversion

sudo apt-get install subversion

Then you will need to get the source

svn co https://line6linux.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/line6linux

Change to the directory

cd line6linux/driver/trunk

Time to build from the source but first make sure you have the latest build and headers

sudo apt-get install build-essential
sudo apt-get install linux-headers

(Note: You will atlest have version 2.6.27.14. To check your version in terminal type uname -r)

Now that is updated and you are in the trunk directory

make
sudo make install

Now shutdown and restart with the guitar port (or toneport) connected and you should beable to see it in your
System> Preferences> Sound

Only use the OSS drivers for native OS support and to prevent feedback while using Jack Keep the “Monitor” channel muted.
