Description Tim 'mithro' Ansell 2017-09-03 23:56:01 CEST
When you select a driver as "p-ols" and have the interface as "USB", you click scan, then if you don't have permission to read the usb device nothing appears. You do at some log levels get;
sr: [00:19.800244] pipistrello-ols: Failed to open device (-8): unable to fetch product description
sr: [00:19.800275] hwdriver: Scan found 0 devices (p-ols).

It would be better if it did something like "Found pipistrello but don't have permission to it" or something...
