WSPR 2.11 on Ubuntu and using a Softrock rxtx 6.3

I have installed WSPR 2.11 on my laptop running Ubuntu. My goal is to use my Softrock 6.3 with it in SDR mode.
I am unable to change bands,it is stuck on 30m. I believe CAT control is not functional.

Question - is there some sort of a driver required for Ubuntu to recognize the Softrock 6.3 when it is plugged into the USB port? How can I check to see if it is a recognized device or not?

I'm trying to break away from windows and still trying to learn Ubuntu.

Thanks!
