@mruslan: The pico group did the trick. There should be an entry in the Wiki for this. Thank you!

@coldspark: also check if your user is in pico group

@mruslan: Yes, I have the 2204A model and I installed libps2000 and libps2000a. I don't know what is wrong with mono or whatever. The device is recognized by libusb, but Picoscope can't find it. MATLAB does also not recognize it. I read on PicoTech's website that you need to install libpswrappers for this. Installed the deb package and for that to work I had to install all libps versions, but still nothing works.

@coldspark: did you install drivers for your oscilloscope model? Driver packages are among optional dependencies of this package. What is wrong with mono? I think everything should be fine with current mono version.

It doesn't find my scope and downgrading mono from the archive gives me a PGP signature error. The package was from an unofficial archive on I realized that version is not available on the official archive anymore. What can I do?

Hi All, new picoscope version (6.14.17_4r544) already out. I already fix it in my github repo I don't know how to submit PR in AUR.

Thanks for maintaining this package. I just want to point out in case anyone else has the same issue - the libps2000 package didn't seem to work for me, but the 'a' version did the trick.

@d33d34rt As mentioned earlier, install libps2000 (without the a). It works.

@mti: thanks for your prompt answer. Yes my user is in pico group. Using root account provides same result (no suitable device found). When running /opt/picoscope/share/usbtest, the result says that my device is detected and my account properly configured (write capacity granted). I'll try to install 3000a although Pico website saids the required lib is libps3000. I keep you updated. thanks again for the support.

@d33d34rt: Maybe you need to run "udevadm control -R" to make sure the correct udev rules are loaded and then disconnect and connect the Picoscope again.

If you run "groups" does it list the group "pico"?

I would try running picoscope as root just to make sure there are no permission problems.

You can also try the libps3000a driver but I think libps3000 is the correct driver for 3206.
