About 5 years ago, I wrote some "drivers" to interface a Velleman K8055 USB interface card . After a recent request, I have decided that they should be brushed up a little, and reinstated with a download link.
I'm open to bug reports, but I can't promise that I'll be able to fix them quickly.
Instructions to compile/install You'll need the following dependencies: libusb-dev libqt4-dev qt4-qmake (ubuntu deps) 1) run qmake -o Makefile qcontrol.pro 2) cd lib 3) make all; make install 4) cd .. 5) make 6) plug in your 8055 usb board 7) sudo ./qcontrol 8) enjoy!
I'm reconsidering writing some python bindings for the libueib.so driver, stay tuned!
