"Invalid device" when connecting as non-root user on Arch Linux

When I start qFlipper-x86_64-1.0.1.AppImage on my Arch Linux system and connect my Flipper, I get an error saying “Device cannot be recognized.”

When I re-run the app as root via sudo ./qFlipper-x86_64-1.0.1.AppImage, the app connects successfully, but this should not be necessary (my user is a member of the uucp group, and should have access to /dev/ttyACM0.)

I had the same issue, there is a script that is in a link in the Read More. After running it every thing worked fine as regular user.

Can you link to the script in question? When I click the “Read More” link, it just takes me to https://docs.flipperzero.one/

EDIT: Was it this one?

Please check this guide: https://github.com/flipperdevices/qFlipper#run
It contains additional steps that will grant access to USB and Serial

Yes, that is the correct script as Astra posted the link to it. Sorry for going by memory and not posting the link.

qFlipper is on AUR - AUR (en) - qflipper-git.
The package takes care of installing/upgrading/deleting the udev rules for you.
