I got a lsusb to work after a bit more hacking.  But that wasn’t the end of the

I’ll give it a spin the next days.

Since I last talked to some of you I had a lot of findings yet I had not been 
able to make any possible solution to fully work yet.  The in-tree which 
supposedly should compile with a Ubuntu was unfortunately ruled out the 
earliest:(  Some had glibc dependencies I kicked out which the F10 (our current 
default) environment didn’t provide, others are just not doing the right thing 
in some cases and required hacking.  In the end I stayed with Wojciech’s 
version as it was the best option to start with and I could make the most 
progress quickly.
