Well, as I said, it's a limitation I accepted when I chose to run Linux.  There is something I want to try, it involves a 32-bit version of a Linux distribution, the WINE (Microsoft compatibility program) source code and a patch to add USB capability to WINE.  It will be interesting to see how that goes.  Wink
Completely understand.  I have friends that have had to deal with similar limitations on their Linux distros but then they also had some advantages over the Windows guys that I envied, too.  Best of luck with your plan and +1 for you for perseverance.

Eh, I can't find those patches anymore.  They were incredibly old, and I guess they didn't work so well with current versions of the software.  So, I tried the latest development version of WINE.  Still no joy.  Roll Eyes

Oh well, it was worth a shot.

Well my Saber came in.

Absolutely beautiful.

The only major gripe I have is that the blade retention screw is different in terms of wrench size compared to my other sabers....had  I known that when I was ordering, I would have included the proper retention wrench. Just need to know what size it requires before I head down to my local hardware store.

The free stuff was an X blade plug and an Initiate LE V2 (meaning I can't really get it upgraded later but oh well haha)

I'll make a thread with pics of my sabers tomorrow once I find my camera.

Yeah, it's bigger.  It takes a 9/64 wrench, as opposed to the normal 5/64.  A few other sabers US sells use the larger size too.

One of these should do it for you.
That way, you never have to search again for the little wrenches. Its all on one tool

My Electrum Wind is my first Ultrasabers to feature a non-silver flash on clash. It has orange FoC with Sentinel Yellow, and damn is that awesome! Make me now more conscious of FoC color.  Smiley

This was my one problem with the two free sabers I've gotten in the past, being of the V2 line, they cannot be upgraded, and I wanted to upgrade them for at least sound before I gave them away as presents.  I still gave them away as presents, but they were slightly less than want I had wanted to give.  They were "Free" though.  Though I suppose the parents are happy that their kids new toys don't make noise.
