debug output from Kovid's device detect procedure from repo version 0.8.63
Description of problem:
calibre does not see device--nook simple w/light
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
both current from repo=0.8.63 and from website=0.8.66
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start calibre - attach nook
2. attach nook - start calibre
--device storage and SD chip not recognized
--calibre icons not created
--file systems not mounted
used to work on previous ver=F14
did clean install F17 on same hardware
--seems to be a permissions thing, see attached debug output
--fyi had to fix pulseaudio by adding user name to audio and dev groups again [no the authconfig thing didn't work]
--can mount both device and SD chip manually
--Kovid on Calibre forum agrees udev/udisk issue
--an oops on the fyi, should be audio and pulse groups
--and a clarification, the pulseaudio reference is wrt Bugzilla: #815413
It sounds like you are logging in in a way that doesn't grant you normal console privs.
How are you logging in?
I use e16 as a desktop so no GDM...it that the issue then?...for pulseaudio as well you think?
I have always just run e16 with 'startx' and have an '.Xclients-default' in my homedir...can GDM be setup to run e16 instead of the default clutter?...and would that solve the problem?
Yes, this is bug 806491
Run 'startx -- vt01'
(provided you are on vt01, use whatever vty you are on).
Does everything work then?
Yes, gdm will offer anything with a .desktop file in /usr/share/xsessions/ as a available session type.
I assume startx fixed this? Please re-open if not and we can try and track it down further.
