Setting up The udev Rules For nitropy#
To be able to access your devices without root privileges, nitropy requires the Nitrokey udev rules. These rules are shipped with libnitrokey. If you don’t have libnitrokey or if you need a newer version, you can install the rules manually:
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Nitrokey/libnitrokey/master/data/41-nitrokey.rules sudo mv 41-nitrokey.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/
After installing the rules, you need to reload them:
sudo udevadm control --reload-rules && sudo udevadm trigger
If you still cannot access your device, try again after rebooting your system.
