Running as unprivileged user

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

Under Detect devices, it is suggested that unprivileged users must be in the plugdev group to run adb. Shouldn't that be usb instead? On my system (udev + android-tools), after identifying my phone with lsusb, the appropriate device file under /dev/bus/usb/ turns out to be group-owned by usb, and adding users to that group allows them to use adb properly. On the other hand, plugdev doesn't even exist in /etc/group. Am I missing something here? Vicky (talk) 00:00, 14 May 2022 (UTC)
