+               To use them, you need to set the environment-variable <kbd>XIL_IMPACT_USE_LIBUSB</kbd> to <kbd>1</kbd>
+               before running the tools. The driver on this page no longer needs to be preloaded if you only used
+               it to access USB cables. Parallel port support still seems to rely on <i>windrvr</i>, which can be
+               emulated by <i>libusb-driver</i>.
