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-18.104.22.1686-linux64
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 ?

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 10.01/02/2016 at 10:32 #4214dozParticipant
I understand and I start my development for Windows 8.1
