I’ve been trying to install /e/ on a Samsung S8 using the easy installer.
Everything is fine until the download mode: the Easy installer stops with an error “libusb couldn’t open device - Operation not permitted”.
Here are the details:
- installed on Debian 11 with
snap install easy-installer --channel=latest/beta
- start Easy installer
- successfully followed each installation steps, until I reboot in Download mode (with “
Power + Bixby + Volume Down”)
- then the Installer stopped and the Installation log shows:
(debug) libusb: error [_get_usbfs_fd] libusb couldn't open USB device  Operation not permitted (debug) ERROR: Failed to access device. libusb error -1
Side note: I’m not sure it’s related but Debian’s logs complain about Apparmor and Easy Installer:
linux audit: AVC apparmor="DENIED" operation="open" profile="snap.easy-installer.easy-installer" name="/home/user/Persistent/core/config/.home/.local/share/fonts/" pid=56818 comm=4A6176614658204170706C69636174 requested_mask="r" denied_mask="r" fsuid=1000 ouid=1000
(I’m using symlinks to handle /home configuration files)
Several installation process was ran, and USB authorization was successfully obtained on the phone.
A last thing: this would be great to be able to copy (and paste) the logs from Easy Installer.
I’ve sent them to the support using the button provided in the Installer
All the best,
