I just noticed today that the latest release of Qthid is available as Debian packages for Debian wheezy (testing) and sid (unstable). As a bonus it contains both Qthid 3.1 and 2.2 so you can easily upgrade the firmware of your brand new Funcube Dongle. It also contains all the necessary setup files and procedures for udev so that no manual setup is required.
I tried to install the package for sid i386 on my Ubuntu 11.04 machine and it worked well. If you try them on different system that uses .deb packages, please let us know how it works.
Thanks to A. Maitland Bottoms and Antoine Beaupré for packaging.
