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.
