I am trying to set up my RME Fireface 400 in Ubuntu 20.10. Before to enter into audio settings I should solve an hardware connection. I dont have Firewire port, so I try to solve as:

[Apple Thunderbolt 3 to 2] + [Apple Thunderbolt 2 to Firewire 9 pin (800)] + cable Firewire 800/400.

First dongle is apparently recognized:

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0781:5583 SanDisk Corp. Ultra Fit
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 04f2:b65a Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd HD Webcam
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 8087:0aaa Intel Corp. Bluetooth 9460/9560 Jefferson Peak (JfP)
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 05ac:1657 Apple, Inc. Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

But I have some problem with the second adapter (thunderbolt 2 to Firewire). I read somewhere I should set the raw1394 into the /ect/modules, but actually I dont have idea how to solve this step. Any suggestion?

many thanks R
