Pystromo and Belkin N52TE

Getting the Belkin Nostromo n52te working in Linux is pretty simple. You can use pystromo: https://launchpad.net/pystromo

For this, under Karmic, I simply needed to add uinput to my /etc/modules file (for reboot) and manually load it once for now:

sudo sh -c "echo uinput >> /etc/modules"
sudo modprobe uinput

Then, after extracting the pystromo-0.6.0.tar.gz file, I just copied the pystromo/config/52-pystromo-debian.rules file into /etc/udev/rules.d/52-pystromo-debian.rules

tar -xvf pystromo-0.6.0.tar.gz
s
udo cp pystromo/config/52-pystromo-debian.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/52-pystromo-debian.rules

Next, I reloaded the udev rules:

sudo udevadm control --reload-rules
sudo udevadm trigger

Then, I moved the extracted pystromo folder into my ~/.config directory

mv pystromo ~/.config/

Finally, I just made sure to add an auto-launcher for:

python ~/.config/pystromo/pystromo-mon.py 

...and everything is good to go.  This will make sure pystromo is up and running each time your reboot.  Otherwise, if you want to run it manually each time, then just type the above into a "run" dialog.
