Hi All,

I'm using a GPS dongle on a raspberryPI. (raspbian)

I'm having the same problem described in

which is gpsd runs as "nobody" but /dev/ttyUSB0 as no read privileges for nobody !

If I do chmod a+r  /dev/ttyUSB0 it would work but as soon as I reboot the device or I unplug and plug the GPS back again, udev would recreate the folder and therefore revert the permissions ?

I could change the scripts but just wondering... is it a bug ?it should work out of the box without hacking system scripts...

any idea ?
