I am trying to set up ArgyllCMS 1.3.2 under Ubuntu 10.10 x86_64 and
profile my display (NVidia TwinView). Some time ago I had set up
ArgyllCMS 1.2 (and 1.1 and 1.0 and  0.7) on a different computer just
following instructions on site. Right now I can not do the same not
under Linux x64 nor Windows XP x32 (Windows is under a VirtualBox
virtual machine). I was able to profile a monitor from MS Windows
(VirtualBox) using the supplied proprietary software.
 Then I am running dispread on linux (as user or as root) I am getting:
votez@ALISA:~/opt/Argyll_V1.3.2/bin$ ./dispread -v -yl Samsung
Number of patches = 900
Setting up the instrument
dispread: Error - new_disprd failed with 'Instrument Access Failed'

If I am trying to do this from Windows (please not -proprietary software
was able to perform profiling):

C:\opt\Argyll_V1.3.2\bin>dispread.exe -v Samsung
Number of patches = 900
Setting up the instrument
dispread: Error - icoms - usb_is_usb_portno: port number out of range!

 Some additional information:
