QX5 USB microscope
The QX5 USB microscope is a computer only microscope with magnification power of 10x, 60x and 200x. The QX5 is sold by Intel Play. Intel Play claims that the QX5 is not supported under GNU/Linux but the cpia2 kernel module supports it well. In order to use the QX5 with a 2.6.x Linux kernel, it is required to get the latest version of cpia2 and qx5view from the cpia2 CVS.
To build and load cpia2, you only have to do
- make install
- modprobe cpia2
You will then be able to start qx5view which should detect your microscope.
