USB OK but No devices found (ubuntu18.04)

I checked all wiki instructions and previous posts in Discourse without joy.
When inserting my LimeSDR Mini, I see it in lsusb but not LimeUtil
$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 006: ID 0403:601f Future Technology Devices International, Ltd
$ LimeUtil --update
No devices found
Any advice?

i think you have to install the udev-rules

 cd LimeSuite/udev-rules
 chmod +x

Thanks for the input. I did that, and did it again without luck
~/LimeSuite/udev-rules$ sudo ./
[sudo] password for bjorn:
~/LimeSuite/udev-rules$ LimeUtil --update
No devices found

I am not sure, but it is important to install all software in the right order. Maybe that’s your problem.
it’s best if you uninstall everything first and try it with a fresh install.
I had written a bash script for myself, maybe it will help you:

if [ "$(id -u)" == "0" ]; then
   echo "This script must be run as normal User" 1>&2
   exit 1

Great script! Got it working. Thanks a lot. I had to start with a fresh Ubuntu 18.04 though. Will try to uninstall everything on the first one.

Should work fine on Ubuntu 18.04 with an install via packages from the PPA. That’s what I’m currently using…
