No, doesn't exist. When I try to create it with MAKEDEV usb, MAKEDEV 
claims to create that device, among others, but doesn't actually do so 
in /dev, but, if I'm not mistaken, in /dev/.static. This is probably 
due to udev, which I installed (+ restart) prompted by Lawrence 
Williams's reply.

I appreciate any suggestions that help me solve this, but I realize that 
there's hardly any relation to KDE anymore, which was scant from the 
outset. Thus I'll better take this to a more appropriate forum.
