Fedora Update Notification

Name        : 3dprinter-udev-rules
Product     : Fedora 22
Version     : 0.1
Release     : 1.fc22
URL         : https://github.com/hroncok/3dprinter-udev-rules
Summary     : Rules for udev to give regular users access to operate 3D printers
Description :
Normally, when you connect a RepRap like 3D printer to a Linux machine by an
USB cable, you need to be in dialout or similar group to be able to control
it via OctoPrint, Printrun, Cura or any other control software. Not any more.

Install this package to grant all users read and write access to
/dev/ttyUSB[0-9] and /dev/ttyACM[0-9].

Disclaimer: Such device might not be a 3D printer, it my be an Arduino, it
might be a modem and it might even be a blender. But normally you would
add your user to dialout and get access to all of those and more anyway.
So I guess be careful when some of the users should not get access to
your blenders.

Update Information:

Rules for udev to give regular users access to operate 3D printers.  Steps to
test (when package is installed):  1. Remove your user from the dialout group 2.
Disconnect the printer if connected 3. Log out and back in from/to your desktop
environment 4. Connect the printer 5. Control it with your favorite software  If
you can control it, it's OK. If you get permission error, it's not OK.
