Did you reboot the RPI or did you execute
$ sudo udevadm control --reload-rules
before testing?

Hi
Do you have udev installed and running?
Try this:
$ apt-cache policy udev
udev:
Installed: 229-4ubuntu12
Candidate: 229-4ubuntu12

if not installed - install it:
$sudo apt-get install udev

if installed check if started:
$ sudo service --status-all | grep udev
[ + ] udev

if shows [ - ] do:
sudo service udev start

if it doesn’t work after this... maybe someone else may be able to help :)
Here is where my ideas are over...

Hello Rumen,
I have checked all you talk about.
Everything was ok :
udev alredy installed and runing on my RPI.
Here is what the termina command returns.
****
bregou@bregou-desktop:~$ apt-cache policy udev
udev:
Installé : 229-4ubuntu12
Candidat : 229-4ubuntu12
Table de version :
*** 229-4ubuntu12 500
500 ports.ubuntu.com xenial-updates/main armhf Packages
100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
229-4ubuntu10 500
500 ports.ubuntu.com xenial-security/main armhf Packages
229-4ubuntu4 500
500 ports.ubuntu.com xenial/main armhf Packages
****
For some tests I have installed "xenial" maybe that is what makes some issues...

Thanks Rumen
Best regards

I am sorry! I did my best to help!
I ran out of ideas :(
It works fine here.
What I can say is that It is not a driver issue.
It is a system configuration issue.

Dear all.
I had a similar issue and was it solved to edit the rule in /etc/udev/ instead of /lib/udev. Unfortunately both exist in the system I don't know why but it was success for me.
Kind regards

Hi All,

I made my own udev rules which also create a symlink with a logical name so that I can check for the presence of this named link to see if the system recognizes the device or not. This may help in determining if the udev rules are applied.
# ZWO filterwheel
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="03c3", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1f01", MODE="0666", SYMLINK+="ZWO_EFW"

which then looks like this in /dev/
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root    15 Nov 18 22:44 ZWO_EFW -> bus/usb/002/011

This symlink is not used by the driver, it's just intended for Humans :)

This week end I tested the setup on a laptop runing kubuntu 16.04 and everything is the same : EFW recognize only in server mode (as on the RPI).

Best regards, and once more Thanks a lot

Hi,
I puchased a EFW and tested it immediately. It worked right from the beginning without any problems on my Ubuntu LTS 16.04. Cool stuff, thanks a lot!

Best regards,

David,
Can you verify that you have your rules in only one of the following locations:

/etc/udev/rules.d/99-sx.rules
/lib/udev/rules.d/99-sx.rules

if in both please remove one of them, probably this one /etc/udev/rules.d/99-sx.rules

if this does not help can you move the file from /lib/... to /etc/...
and verify you have this rule:
KERNEL=="hidraw*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="03c3", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1f01", GROUP="users", MODE="0666"

There is some udev problem, but I have no idea what...

David, please try this and let me know, I am curious :)
good luck!

Rumen

p.s. Klaus, thanks for the positive report of the driver :)

Hello Rumen,
I have tested what you talk about.
I had 2 rules files in the folder "/etc/udev/rules.d"
They were :
60-ssd-sheduler.rules
99-meadedsi.rules

I remove them, reboot, lauch kstars and indi in local mode : the same as before : EFW not recognized

I copy/paste all the files from /lib/... to /etc/... reboot lauch kstars, indi in local mode : the same as before : EFW not recognized

Moreover I have the rule you talk about at the end of the 99-asi.rules file.
KERNEL=="hidraw*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="03c3", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1f01", GROUP="users", MODE="0666"

As Klaus have good result using ubuntu, i'll try to install ubuntu and not kubuntu on one of my computer (i have a free hard drive somhere :-) ).
I don't know when i will be able to do it, I miss time.
Next week i go for one week in the professionnal observatory "PIC DU MIDI" in the south of France.
If the sky is clear i will be realy busy :-) I hope il will be so.

Hope those new infos help you Rumen.

Best Regards
David
