ctlmissile does all the actual work. You'll need libusb installed to compile it, but assuming you have that typing "make" should do the trick. You can then
do:

ctlmissile up
ctlmissile down
ctlmissile left
ctlmissile right
ctlmissile fire
ctlmissile stop

to do all the things you'd expect. Note you'll need to be root to use it. I
haven't figured out a nice way to use libusb yet as a user. Anyone got some pointers?

Oh, and you'll need to not have usbhid installed or it'll claim the device itself (I think I can add support so that it gets automatically disconnected from the device, so I'll have a look at that).

usblauncher is a Perl program that uses GTK2 to provide a basic interface for controlling the launcher. It uses ctlmissile. Currently I've made ctlmissile suid root so I can run usblauncher as my normal user id, but I'm not sure about this long term.

What's New in This Release:

Added support for Dream Cheeky USB missile launcher from James Puderer.
