Hi guys, I'm a Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx newbie and I had the exact same problem as enixon: Despite my following the instructions the 0.7.0 driver simply wouldn't install and would spew (an identical) screenful of error messages. In the end I found the advice here at page 20 of the thread: I manually installed the 0.7.3 version from https://launchpad.net/~doctormo/+arc...untu1_i386.deb and it worked wonders. Yahoo!
(Although I wonder...shouldn't adding the PPA: doctorMO thingy to Software Sources and reloading have done the same thing? Coz it certainly didn't.)
Thanks a bunch! I wish installing the driver weren't such a tiresome experience...having to rake for some bits of useful info in the forums and such
