Ha, I just found this in one of my open tabs:

Code: Select all

ENV{XAUTHORITY}="/home/username/.Xauthority"
Looks like the env can/should be set in the .rules file. I didn't search that properly, and just got lucky in finding it.

The "proper" method, as I understand it, would be to have the .rules file look like this:

Code: Select all

ACTION=="add", ENV{XAUTHORITY}="/home/zaileion/.Xauthority", RUN+="/usr/local/bin/99-deviceconnected.sh"
Then change the .sh to just the hashbang and the aplay line and test if it still works.

change what .sh? change the file name from 99-deviceconnected.sh to 99-deviceconnected.# ?

Okay, let's try this again in the .rules file:

Code: Select all

ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ENV{XAUTHORITY}="/home/zaileion/.Xauthority", RUN+="/usr/local/bin/99-deviceconnected.sh"
Regarding your last post, change the .sh file to this:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
aplay path/to/file
I just corrected #!/bin/bash in case you missed my correction.

I'm struggling to figure out why it's playing 3 times. Are there 3 devices connected via USB when this is happening? Maybe we can find another thing to add to the .rules files to help eliminate keyboards, mice, etc. if so.

Maybe this for the .rules file will help:

Code: Select all

ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="block", SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ENV{XAUTHORITY}="/home/zaileion/.Xauthority", RUN+="/usr/local/bin/99-deviceconnected.sh"

Okay, that was the wrong subsystem apparently. I'll see if I can figure out which it should be.

Try this in the terminal then plug in the device and copy the output:

Code: Select all

udevadm monitor --kernel --property --subsystem-match=usb
I believe that might give us the info we need to modify the .rules file properly.

I'm thinking the file is playing for every instance up the tree that is matched.

In your specific case, I think this might work to play the file one time, but it won't work on some other USB devices. Change the .rules to this:

Code: Select all

ACTION=="bind", DRIVER=="usbfs", ENV{XAUTHORITY}="/home/zaileion/.Xauthority", RUN+="/usr/local/bin/99-deviceconnected.sh"
I believe that will play the file AFTER you click to allow on the phone.
