A little more germination detail:

Park's Success with Seeds (1978) - "Sow outdoors where plants are to grow in early spring as soon as soil can be worked, or sow indoors, maintaining a temperature within the medium of 55-60*F during germination which takes 10-15 days...Linaria does best in cooler climates."

Alternative to direct sowing approximately 4 or 6 weeks before last spring frost, winter sowing at that time might also be a possibility which could get the germination process past slugs and other natural accidents a little easier if your containers are more protected than the open ground.
