    I test your device with Ubuntu 15.04 (kernel 3.19.0-33-generic #38-Ubuntu SMP Fri Nov 6 18:18:12 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux)
    and with TobiiGazeSdk-CApi-

    I Got this error :

    ./fwupgrade –auto tobiipkg –info-only provides me
    Tobii Firmware Upgrade Tool
    205 No eye tracker could be found
    No tracker connected

    Moreover, I’ve installed tobiihidservice version 0.1.1 amd64 (Tobii USB Service 2.0.2 – for Linux 64bit Ubuntu 14.04)
    It seems that this package is only for “REX” device and is not compatible with EyeX Device Is it true ?

    Can you confirm me that you don’t have solution to use your eyeX with a linux solution ?
    Is it a technical limitation ? Do you need help ?
    Is it possible to load a firmware with windows and to use it with Linux ?

    Hi Marc,

    There are no Linux drivers available for the Tobii EyeX Controller, only the Tobii REX. I believe there are a number of reasons for this, but that the main reason is a business decision to only provide drivers for the currently supported platforms for the Tobii EyeX software: Windows 7, 8.1 and 10.


    I understand and I start my development for Windows 8.1
