It talks about another TI eval board that seems to have the same USB PID/VID as the Stellaris launchpad.

So hoping for the best, I created a file named:
and stuffed this into it:
<?xml version="1.0"?> <connection id="Stellaris In-Circuit Debug Interface" class="31040"> <connectionType Type="LM_ICDI"/> <property Type="hiddenfield" Value="No" id="dataFileRequired"/> </connection>
(/opt/ti) is my installation directory, you might have to change the location if you installed someplace else.
I followed the hints in that e2e post and ended up with a working CCS V5.2 under ubuntu 11.04. I restarted CCS as root and saw that there was a new connection type "Stellaris In-Circuit Debug Interface" in the General section of the project properties. I had to install and monkey around with the libraries mentioned in the post. Once it stopped complaining about missing libraries, I imported the workbook labs and was able to compile, download and debug on linux. Yay! I probably should add a udev entry so I can run as a regular user.
I'm still very interested in a command line openocd interface to the stellaris launchpad. Until that appears, at least I don't have to run windows or a virtual machine to get a working linux development environment for my Stellaris Launchpad.
