I run PCLinuxOS, the KDE32 Full Version DC-1 is automatic detected as USB2.0 High-Speed True HD Audio Device so no additional drivers are needed. Pulse audio is installed by default so if your looking for a Bit Perfect data stream Pulse must be disabled, Super easy to do in the Config GUI Clementine is the default media player and will also need a config change to get Bit Perfect streaming, look here, www.head-fi.org/t/561961/bit-perfect-audio-from-linux/120 A few other config changes are needed, if you need help just ask.
