The Galep IV and Galep V devices from Conitec work fine under Linux.
There is open source Linux software for the IV model, but it is alpha
and not maintained. The Windows version of both devices (notably the
Galep V which is based on an ARM uC running Linux) work very nice in wine.

Conitec is going to release a native Linux version of their software 
for the Galep V. Whether that will be free as freedom or "only" free as
beer is yet unknown :)


The setup of the Galep V software is trivial, since the V uses a USB
network chip. You can telnet and http to the device, too.
