I am new to linux so be gentle with me. I am running Linux Garuda on a Dell Laptop. I have searched and searched and cannot get the Ecoder to work for the life of me. I tried the various posts on the forums here to no avail.

Any help would be appreciated . . . What am I doing wrong.

1. We test software operation only with Linux Ubuntu, not any other Linux build.

2. By default Linux does not allow access to USB devices, to use them (including E-Coder) you need to enter the following lines when the system starts:
sudo chmod 664 /dev/hidraw*
sudo chgrp plugdev /dev/hidraw*

When I do that it says "invalid group plugdev"
When I try to add the group using groupadd I get error
groupadd permission denied
groupadd cannot lock /etc/group: try again later

Perhaps you need to be a member of the dialout group to access the e-coder, worth a try
