The file adb_usb.ini does not exist anymore. Can you remove it from package()?

cribbageSTARSHIP commented on 2015-08-19 21:17 (UTC)

I know am late to the party, but using this package I was able to connect my android. I posted about it on reddit:

all my PKGBUILD are managed on github. Check out for suggestions and forks

anatolik commented on 2014-04-25 17:25 (UTC)

android-udev is in [community] and the AUR package will be removed soon. Please create android-udev-git package (it is better name for the package anyway) so I can merge this package comments/votes.

anatolik commented on 2014-04-23 18:56 (UTC)

This is an extremely useful package. I would like to give the package higher status and move it to [community] so more people will enjoy it. What do you think?

Is it possible to add Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0? # lsusb Bus 001 Device 009: ID 04e8:6860 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd GT-I9100 Phone [Galaxy S II], GT-I9300 Phone [Galaxy S III], GT-P7500 [Galaxy Tab 10.1] ---> Galaxy Note (8.0) is not listed. KDE's Dolphin sees the device as a camera, and can travel its user storage file system, but is unable to transfer files from PC to device. The Galaxy Note device itself reports it does not find a proper app with which to communicate with the PC.

mtorromeo commented on 2013-05-21 12:59 (UTC)

@Morfeo: I suggest you to use a specific commit reference for the source file so that you don't have checksums updating all the time. Like this: When you want to update the software you change both the commit and the checksums. Tracking master should only be done in a *-git PKGBUILD.

prettyvanilla commented on 2013-05-13 00:07 (UTC)

And it's been updated again yesterday...

JKAbrams commented on 2013-05-10 12:29 (UTC)

It's been updated so the checksum is off, correct checksum right now: md5 3ecf3f716250917e9007a63456e2bf70

raudi commented on 2013-05-05 12:25 (UTC)

I just noticed that enabling usb debugging changes the device id of my nexus 4 and nexus 7. Here is what lsusb gives me when USB debugging is enabled on my nexus 7: ID 18d1:4e42 Google Inc. When it is disabled: ID 18d1:4e41 Google Inc. For the Nexus 4 it is the same: ADB enabled: ID 18d1:4ee2 Google Inc. ADB disabled: ID 18d1:4ee1 Google Inc. But since this id is already in the rules(Under Nexus 10 which seems to have a different id after a quick websearch!), it works. Finally I know why my nexus 7 in fastboot mode wasn't recognized in qtadb. Please add the additional Nexus 7 id and clean up the Nexus 4/10 one. Also I don't know if it is intentional, but under Samsung is a second set of Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 rules, which are a bit different. If they are necessary (I don't know enough about udev to know), please move them to google, to make it logical, or remove them.

robertfoster commented on 2013-01-17 15:35 (UTC)

I've written a warning in post-installation...IMHO the best solution would be to collect every productid for every phone

raudi commented on 2013-01-16 20:12 (UTC)

I also have problems with my printer. After I installed this udev rules, it wouldn't be discovered by CUPS. It's a Kyocera FS 1020D and commenting the Kyocera line out makes it work again. I think there are a lot more Kyocera printers than phones (I only know of one, the echo), so it should be considered to remove the Kyocera line, comment it out, or at least give some kind of warning. The best solution, if it is possible, is of course to edit the rule, so it applies only to this one Kyocera phone.

mamamia88 commented on 2013-01-10 16:25 (UTC)

Never mind i can see it's in /usr/lib from reading packagebuild so can i delete the /etc/udev directory?

mamamia88 commented on 2013-01-10 16:22 (UTC)

Did the directory move? No files showing up in /etc/udev and trying to use go-mtpfs

robertfoster commented on 2012-12-19 20:12 (UTC)

nexus 4 7 and 10 added

SeeLook commented on 2012-11-13 11:36 (UTC)

Hi! The rules overrides group for my Samsung Usb printer to adbgroups, so cupsd can't accesses it.

adrianbs commented on 2012-11-08 14:06 (UTC)

Hi! I don't see the Galaxy Nexus (GSM) in your file. idVendor is 18d1 and idProduct is 4e30. Thanks!

trusktr commented on 2012-10-31 07:35 (UTC)

namcap is showing this message: android-udev E: unknown is not a common license (it's not in /usr/share/licenses/common/) What does that mean? Is it safe to install?

chungy commented on 2012-10-22 21:12 (UTC)

I believe libmtp is an unnecessary dependency. Also udev has been merged into systemd, so it should depend on systemd instead.

manuel commented on 2012-07-13 18:00 (UTC)

@markelos thanks for your reply. Do I have to copy it to /etc/udev/rules.d?

/lib/udev/rules.d as stated in pkgbuild.

Where does the rules file get installed to? I just installed the package and don't have a rules file in /etc/udev/rules.d.

"18D1" is the usb id for nexus devices. my nexus s works just fine here with it. Cherrs. my current rules file:

robertfoster commented on 2011-11-28 14:15 (UTC)

@Luminger: idVendor for google devices is 18d1 as you can see here @audrius: there's no rule on line 2 that include SYSFS. the rule adhere to new udev specifies.

audrius commented on 2011-11-28 08:53 (UTC)

Getting errors: Nov 28 04:45:26 localhost udevd[238]: unknown key 'SYSFS{idVendor}' in /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules:2 Nov 28 04:45:26 localhost udevd[238]: invalid rule '/etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules:2' etc etc etc... Probably this is related with previous post. Can this be solved please?

commented on 2011-11-24 18:41 (UTC)

CTown is right, as I posted some month ago it should be "16d1" and not "18D1". Also this package is failing with the actual udev version which has dropped support for SYSFS. It would be great If you could fix the package up to be complient with the current udev.

archan.paul commented on 2011-10-28 06:52 (UTC)

commented on 2011-09-24 21:04 (UTC)

Nice package, helps a lot. By the way the value of SYSFS{idVendor} for Google devices should be "18d1" NOT "18D1". Just wanted to point that out!

stativ commented on 2011-09-17 09:02 (UTC)

Screw that, I removed the other package.

stativ commented on 2011-09-16 13:37 (UTC)

markelos: yeah, I would do that when it's decided which package too keep. Given the number of votes I think udev-android-rules has more users and therefore it might affect more users when deleted.

axil42 commented on 2011-09-16 12:40 (UTC)

We could request a merge also ;)

stativ commented on 2011-09-16 08:48 (UTC)

Morfeo: Did you contact maintainer of the udev-android-rules whether he still maintains his package? If he doesn't you could take over the udev-android-rules (you would get plenty votes for free) package and this package can be removed then.

robertfoster commented on 2011-09-06 09:21 (UTC)

agru commented on 2011-08-21 13:28 (UTC)

Perhaps all Samsung should be combined (only one MODE entry) The Tab 10.1 uses MTP to transfer files (the symlink name is not really necessary but I thought it appropriate) Note to all Tab 10.1 users: libmtp 1.1.0 does not work with the tab, see bug: I also think that a note about the package "udev-android-rules" being replace by this could be good. # Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="04e8", MODE="0666" SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="04e8", ATTR{idProduct}=="685e", SYMLINK+="android_adb" SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="04e8", ATTR{idProduct}=="685e", SYMLINK+="android_fastboot" SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="04e8", ATTR{idProduct}=="6860", SYMLINK+="android_mtp"

you could add this device too, works here (with Archos 101). Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0e79:1411 Archos, Inc.

@grogers3.14: are you sure that the usb_modeswitch is needed for any Huawei phone? if so maybe it's ok to add your rule. @Luminger: Waiting for more reports from other users @Anachron: I'll update the install file in the way you said @jordz: the rule for sony ericsson is already in the rules file...

Can you add the Sony Ericsson X10 mini pro? lsusb: 0fce:2138 Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB Xperia X10 mini pro (Debug)

After doing `gpasswd -a USERNAME adbusers`, you have to log out and back in to be a member of the group. Should this be mentioned in the .install file? I did not know that and spent some time trying to access my phone.

Maybe somebody noticed this as well: The Nexus One rule does (atleast for me) nothing. At first I did not found a solution for my issue but here it is (which should affect any other rule with this "error"): udev doesn't seem to like that the "d" within 'SYSFS{idVendor}=="18D1"' is written in caps - I modified it to 18d1 and - magicaly - adb worked. If anyone has problems with this you may try this. If someone can proof this also I would say that you update the package and lowercase any hexvalue within the udev.rule.

My phone, the Huawei U8110 (or T-Mobile Pulse Mini) requires a call to usb_modeswitch before it will be detected by adb. This can be set to run automatically with a udev rule, but then the package would have to depend on usb_modeswitch (in community repo). Perhaps add it as an optdepend? usb_modeswitch command: /usr/sbin/usb_modeswitch -W -v 12d1 -p 1030 -V 12d1 -P 1034 -M '5553424370ab71890600000080010a11060000000000000000000000000000' -s 20 Possible udev rule: SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="12d1", SYSFS{idProduct}==1030, RUN+="<ABOVE COMMAND>"

added Google's VendorID

Would be great if you add the VendorID for the Nexus One (which isn't the HTC one). $ lsusb | grep Nexus Bus 001 Device 010: ID 18d1:4e12 Google Inc. Nexus One Phone (Debug)

Yes, seems ok :) I will try it right away

commented on 2010-12-08 13:43 (UTC)

perfect! the install file is ready i changed the lines in 51-android.rules into SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0502", MODE="0660", GROUP="adbusers" i think we are ready to update, is it correct?

vnoel commented on 2010-12-08 11:38 (UTC)

But what do you mean? Asking people doing it by themselves or creating the group for them in the install file? I would be in favor of the second case, so it is not important if it is complicated or not since it is automatically done and check for cases where the group has already been added. If it is for the first case, yes, I agree with you, groupadd is simple enough by itself. By the way, virtualbox seems to do the same as rtkit: But they do not use -r for groupadd in order for it to not be a system group. So, I propose the following install file: post_install() { getent group adbusers >> /dev/null || /usr/sbin/groupadd adbusers || return 1 /bin/cat << EOF ===> In order to use adb, you have to be in the 'adbusers' group ===> For that, use: gpasswd -a USERNAME adbusers EOF } post_upgrade() { post_install } post_remove() { getent group adbusers &>/dev/null && /usr/sbin/groupdel adbusers }

commented on 2010-12-08 11:11 (UTC)

it seems more complicated... i prefer groupadd -f adbusers because it's the method used for virtualbox and i'm sure it works. by the way if this method doesn't work we can change it in future i'll update package soon

vnoel commented on 2010-12-08 10:31 (UTC)

Yes, seems nice to me :) We can copy what they do in official packages, for example rtkit add a new group in its install file: Then tell people to add their user to the group.

commented on 2010-12-08 09:35 (UTC)

i like adbusers :) maybe we can add these lines in the .install file: # Add adbusers group groupadd -f adbusers # Add your user to the adbusers group: # gpasswd -a USERNAME adbusers

vnoel commented on 2010-12-07 12:34 (UTC)

Hi, As discussed on android-sdk, we could continue here to see what could be used as a group for enabling access to the devices. For example at work, our machines can be accessed by anyone using ssh and with the current rules in this package anyone could access my phone connected to my machine! The same way we have group for accessing disks, cdrom, camera or printer, we could have one for accessing adb devices :) I propose adbusers but maybe this is not the best.
