    It doesn’t work on mine, either; get the exact same errors as Gilbert Dion gets (well, not the French part).

    Please check the bug here https://bugs.launchpad.net/udev-discover/+bug/832524 with work around

    It needs to be fixed, so a minor version of packaging will be released.

    Meanwhile you can edit the /usr/bin/udev-discover and replace the line 34:

    UDEVDISCOVER_UI = ‘/usr/local/share/udev-discover/udev-discover.ui’


    UDEVDISCOVER_UI = ‘/usr/share/udev-discover/udev-discover.ui’

  4. Hi! Thanks for the article about udev-discover. I’m the author of the tool.

    Regarding this bug, it was solved in the 0.2.1 minor release published some days ago.


    Thanks for your feedback
