Hello, I am trying to run the Pico on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS using EigenD community-2.1.7, and I don't think I am very far away from getting it to work:

1. Download two files (x86_64 DEB package and start shell script) from Github, and feel grateful to TheTechnobear. In Terminal:

$ wget
$ wget

2. Install required packages, the EigenD package, and copy start shell script to location

$ sudo apt-get install -y build-essential libiw-dev libfreetype6-dev libx11-dev libxext-dev libxcursor-dev libasound2-dev libxinerama-dev mesa-common-dev
$ sudo dpkg -i EigenD-gpl-2.1.7-community-x86_64.deb
$ sudo cp /usr/local/pi/release-2.1.7-community/

3. Run EigenD

$ sudo ./usr/local/pi/release-2.1.7-community/

Plugin scan begins (and crashes) during the first run. EigenD window doesn't really start. I think it also crashes for trying to load an Alpha set up.

1. What am I missing?
2. Does Ubuntu have the right 'USB drivers'?
3. Does the Pico need to be plugged in at any point during installation/initial running?
4. Are there any changes to file or folder permissions that need to be manually applied? What are they?
5. I understand I still need the beast of a Resource download (3.8 GB). I understand I need to expand the EXE/RAR file. Do I also need to unzip the five ZIP archives inside it? Where should the resulting directories go?
6. Do I need to obtain from Steinberg's website? If yes, where does the unzipped folder go?
7. Do I need to manually change the default setup? How?

Thanks very much for all the work!
