Wanna use a Mayflash DolphinBar with Dolphin on Linux? You’ll need this udev rule

This is what I needed, I put it in /etc/udev/rules.d/80-dolphinbar.rules:

SUBSYSTEM=="hidraw", ATTRS{idVendor}=="057e", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0306", MODE="0666"

I can’t remember where I found this, I’m pretty sure I didn’t figure this out for myself. If you need a DolphinBar, Aliexpress should have you covered. It could be that the vendor code differs for yours, so make sure to watch dmesg when you plug it in.

    1. Glad to hear! I’m still almost 100% sure I stole this from somewhere, perhaps the Dolphin forums, perhaps some Arch Linux wiki (but it works on openSUSE as well). Anyway, all credit goes to the original finders but I’m still happy it helped us both!

        1. It depends on the distribution, but for most you should be able to create a new file such as 10-mayflash.rules in /etc/udev/rules.d and then reload udev (so you don’t have to reboot): udevadm control --reload. You will need to unplug and replug the Dolphinbar afterwards. Good luck!
