Here is a library I have written to allow Fusion Brain V4 access in Linux. I have not added support for previous versions, however I will soon. This library depends on libusb-0.1 which can be installed through most distros' package management utility. (yum install libusb-devel on fedora, or apt-get install libusb-dev on debian). The ./FB program included in this package was compiled on ubuntu, so it may or may not work on other distros of linux. The source code is also included so people who cannot run the program can attempt to compile it themselves
You will need libqt4-dev (on ubuntu) to compile this program, and then it is just a matter of "qmake && make" to compile it.
Edit 2/28/2009: Update attached, gui program by Qt. You will need libqt4-dev to compile it, and then just run 'qmake && make' to compile. I have attached an executable, but I don't know how well that will work. I have removed the command line app, that didn't seem to get any interest.

So where is this program?
The best resurrected frontend I've ever used, period.
Uh, it WAS linked..... wait a few
Edit: Main post has the link now. 'bout time someone mentioned I forgot something!
Hey malcom its good too see you have already made progress on this, ill download it soon and test it out.
I've edited the original post due to the fact that I rewrote the library to use libusb0.1 rather than libusb1.0. Most distros have a 0.1 binary package, making it much easier for people to compile
haha I work with comedi and orocos on a daily basis
would be sweet to set this up!
PS. I work for Microchip at the fab in Oregon. We make a lot of PIC18F wafers.
