In some circumstances Linux machines might not recognize your Blockstream Jade devices for various reasons. Here you can find a few of the common issues that other Linux users have encountered so far, and their resolution: Ubuntu 22.04+ The problem is with the default configuration of Ubuntu 22.04. BRLTTY, a program that "provides access to the Linux/Unix console (when in text mode) for a blind person using a refreshable braille display". BRLTTY uses udev rules to get permissions to mess with the TTYs without being root. In particular, it assigns Jade's product and vendor Id (idVendor=10c4, idProduct=ea60) to a braille device. As a result the system finds Jade, but after a few seconds it disconnects it due to the conflict. To resolve the conflict modify the file /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/*brltty*.rules, comment the line related to device 10c4:ea60 and reboot. Arch On Arch the group to access this kind of USB devices is uucp. I was also able to add the right udev rules to give 660 access to myself for the device. # usermod -a -G uucp yourregusername WSL https://devblogs.microsoft.com/commandline/connecting-usb-devices-to-wsl/You need additional setup to do USB passthrough from the Windows host to WSLafter you follow these directions run “dmesg -w” and watch for something like /dev/ttyUSB0 to appear. Then you need to add permissions for your non-root user to be able to access that device.
