Hercules Remix on Ubuntu 18.04

Postby goldster » Wed Jul 01, 2020 10:49 am

I'm trying to run a Hercules dj console rmx version 1 on mixxx 2.2.4 on ubuntu 18.04. I've had the whole setup running (using the rmx as a vinyl pass thru mixer and DVS/digital mixer) on an old macbook, so I know it works, however on Ubuntu it recognises the sound cards (and the device name) but not the controller in the controller section of preferences.

I've even added a powered USB hub in case there is a USB power issue. When i type USB devices in terminal I see the hercules. Any ideas?

In order to use a HID device in Linux you must have read and write permission to the hid devices. See details at this page:
