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 Alsa 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
PHP Code:
sudo apt-get install subversion 
Then you will need to get the source
PHP Code:
svn co 
Change to the directory
PHP Code:
cd line6linux/driver/trunk 
Time to build from the source but first make sure you have the latest build and headers

PHP Code:
sudo apt-get install build-essential 
PHP Code:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers 
(Note: You will atlest have version To check your version in terminal type uname -r)

Now that is updated and you are in the trunk directory
PHP Code:
PHP Code:
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
