Issues with USB IDs in USB Devices Rules

Symptom:

USB Device Rules you configured do not take effect.

Problem:

The System Information tool in IGEL Linux omits leading zeros in USB vendor and product IDs. These are shown only three hexadecimal digits long.

System Information

Solution:

If you see three-digit USB IDs in System Information, use the lsusb commandline tool to examine the devices:

  1. Open Local Terminal.
  2. Enter the lsusb command.
  3. Look for the device in question, possibly using grep to search in the lsusb output:

    lsusb | grep -i [search term]

    Using lsusb on the Commandline

  4. Use the four-digit IDs that lsusb reports.

    IGEL's Terms & Conditions apply.
