Issues with USB IDs in USB Devices Rules


USB Device Rules you configured do not take effect.


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


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.
