@s-ol The xr-hardware (xr-hardware-git) dependency should take care of the udev rules. If those are missing some USB device we need to add them to xr-hardware.

I know we have missed something in the past because we had the rules shipped by the steam package installed /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/70-steam-vr.rules that has the rules for all the Vive/Index devices.

Unlike libsurvive proper, this doesn't currently install the udev rules as per the "Getting Started" guide. I think that would be a good addition:

install -D -m644 "${pkgname}-${pkgver}/useful_files/81-vive.rules" -t "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/udev/rules.d"

@haagch Thank you. If you build the package in a clean chroot with devtools (as Arch Linux packagers do with repository packages), you will see the namcap message indicating libusb as a missing dependency.

Interesting, namcap isn't showing libusb here. Still added it because I guess it really is a dependency.

@haagch 'libusb' is missing on depends. Without libusb installed, the package will not even compile, showing this error: ../src/driver_vive.h:14:10: fatal error: libusb-1.0/libusb.h: No such file or directory../src/driver_vive.h:14:10: fatal error: libusb-1.0/libusb.h: No such file or directory

And namcap output shows that libusb is needed at runtime: libsurvive-git E: Dependency libusb detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/'] needed in files ['usr/lib/libsurvive/plugins/'])

Please add libusb to depends.

Note: ignore my previous comment, it was for your other package and was wrongly place here. I deleted it.
