I am using a Digitus USB to Rs 232 converter to connect to my Pactor Modem.
Somehow I can't get that working. I do have drivers for Linux, but there seems to be no facility to install them.
Any ideas? :)

The drivers need to compiled.

I found the drivers shipped with the Windows drivers are incomplete. I used the Linux driver archive from Digitus:

http://ftp.assmann.com/pub/DA-/DA-70146-1___4016032265399/DA-70146-1_driver_linux-1.0.0_20101202.tar.gz

Unpack the archive in Downloads; open a terminal:

Change to the working directory
Code:
cd Downloads/libftd2xx1.0.0/libusb-1.0.8
Configure the build
Code:
./configure
Make the build
Code:
make
Install...
Code:
sudo make install

See if that does the trick.
