Oops, I said I wasn't going to comment on this thread anymore, but I
am anyway. On accident, ok?

This "isn't any drivers" comment is nonsensical. Perhaps your Linux
distro does not have the appropriate drivers easily available? KDE is
a layer way up high above where the device drivers live, and isn't
relevant in a discussion on drivers. Unless I'm missing something
