hi Caelia, have you already found this thread in the arturia-forum?

btw. I have a beatstep and a minilab mk I and would also be interested
in finding a way to configure everything in linux. for now I use a
windows vm to do that. I didn’t get the control center to recognize the
devices when I tried it one year or so ago. but wine is
updated/developed really fast, i. e. a new version each month. so
chances are usb drivers and such things will be working one day in wine

have a good day!
