- I think that the si570 hamlib support will not need the device filled in. You probably need to add the softrock.rules as Sid described in one of his notes on the softrock list.

Well you are doing good so far.
Well Linux found the USB hub, But why didn't fldigi find it.
The /dev/ttyUSB0) should be the last thing after the serial ports. Only
thing that I can think of is one of the device's you have plugged in is
keeping fldigi from seeing the ports.
If you run fldigi from a terminal are you seeing any errors ?
Open Synaptic and remove brltty.
