Hi Arjen,

Thanks for your answer.
If you have time to support me, I will for sure follow you, providing all
the information you need.
I'm a software designer too, so don't hesitate to ask for some particular
build or to make changes at source code level.

I have built the nut-2.6.0 version.
I did not want to completely uninstall my 2.4.3 version, which had been so
gracefully installed by the debian package system... So, I tried to install
only the 2.6.0 drivers, and forced nut to use them, by creating a new
directory called /lib/nut-2.6, and making a symbolic link:
/lib/nut -> /lib/nut-2.6.
Please tell me if this is a right approach, to use the 2.6 HID parser.
