Trinket on Ubuntu 14.04


Personal Notes on get adafruit Trinket to work on Ubuntu 14.04.

As described in their manual, Linux (and arduino 1.5) is not supported, because sometimes the kernel does not create the device node when trinket is inserted in the usbport.
I suspect the problem lies in the fact that trinket uses only attiny85, and implements the usb stack in software. so probably a subtle bug in linux or in the trinket prevents a proper handshake.

The first time i tried using this board, i was using Ubuntu 13.10, and i believe i had the same problem. Having Upgraded to Ubuntu 14.04, i hoped the situation somewhat improved, as it did.
