I don't think so, there is a driver (which is based on Windows sources) 
but I never tested it (because of the lack of dish) and others reported 
only problems...

Yes, that could be one improvement: combining the dst-fe and the 
usb-driver. Manu wanted to free the dst-driver from the PCI-bindings - I 
don't know the current situation.

To answer your question: I think the driver does not working currently.
