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.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
