Device is not available: No such device
laci@whisper:~$ cat /etc/lsb-release
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu

What now?

Thanks in advance!

I don't know but it might have something to do with the way it is seen by the OS, that is as "device 021." However, I cannot find out what those device codes from lsusb mean anywhere so that is all I can help you with.
