  1. Please open a terminal and go to the device login volume (usually mounted in /media/).
  2. Locate the <device-name>.linux file - versions prior to 4.8 have a file that is named device-login 
  3. Run the login application that you have located with the command sudo ./device-login or sudo ./<device-name>.linux
  4. Enter the password for your Linux user account when prompted
  5. Unlock secure USB with the device password


Depending on your distribution (Ubuntu is confirmed to work) you may be required to copy the login application to your desktop and chmod the file to be made executable.
Please note that the device must be initialized with a password on a Windows or OS X machine before using it with the Linux client.
