Non-root access on SuSE Linux

Here are some things to try first...
Typically, SuSE works out-of-the box. There is still uncertainty regarding the access. Several users are unable to access their device unless they are root. Here are some things to try.
1) remove the file /etc/hotplug/usb/ifpdev
remove the all the ifpdev entries from the file /etc/hotplug/usb.usermap
if the file /etc/hotplug/usb.usermap is empty after you remove all the ifpdev
entries then just delete the file /etc/hotplug/usb.usermap.

2) make sure the file /etc/resmgr.conf contains:
# for libusb access
class usb
class desktop includes usb

3) try using the script.
