"journalctl -b" command reveals inproper libsane permissions and an invalid key. [Solved]

Post by panorain »

I decided to review the "journalctl -b" command output of my desktop
computer and came upon the following entries each after one another in
lines 983-986. I have linuxmint 20.1 installed.

Apr 14 15:04:24 user-HP-ProDesk-405-G1-MT systemd-udevd[494]:
Configuration file
/etc/udev/rules.d/60-brother-brscan4-libsane-type1.rules is marked
executable. Please remove executable permission bits. Proceeding anyway.
Apr 14 15:04:24 user-HP-ProDesk-405-G1-MT systemd-udevd[494]:
/etc/udev/rules.d/60-brother-brscan4-libsane-type1.rules:9 Invalid key
'SYSFS'
Apr 14 15:04:24 user-HP-ProDesk-405-G1-MT systemd-udevd[494]:
/etc/udev/rules.d/60-brother-libsane-type1-inst.rules:14 Invalid key 'SYSFS'

Update: I used "chmod a-x /etc/udev/rules.d/60-brother-brscan4-libsane-type1.rules". I powercycled and only 2 of the three errors remain.
Apr 15 18:45:24 user-HP-ProDesk-405-G1-MT systemd-udevd[514]: /etc/udev/rules.d/60-brother-brscan4-libsane-type1.rules:9 Invalid key 'SYSFS'
Apr 15 18:45:24 paul-HP-ProDesk-405-G1-MT systemd-udevd[514]: /etc/udev/rules.d/60-brother-libsane-type1-inst.rules:14 Invalid key 'SYSFS'

I do not know what these error messages specifically mean.

1. Should I contact a Debian maintainer or the scanner manufacturer themselves concerning "SYSFS" key?

Thanks

Neither, yet.

Post the output of inxi -Fxz from a terminal, and please, enclose it in code tags [code]output.here[/code]. You'll see the code tags icon </> when you reply otherwise terminal output is nigh impossible to read. With over 380 posts to your credit, you ought to be aware of those two requirements by now.

Just to add, if you aren't experiencing any sort of failure with your device, the message can probably be ignored, and the udev rules will continue to function.
