Gqrx not starting, rules?

I am using OpesnSuse 15.4 updated, Gqrx installed from the package manger, /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/rtl-sdr.rules installed from the package manager and rtl-sdr Support programs for RTL2832 installed from the package manaher.

Starting Gqrx from terminal:

Failed to open sdr device.
Please select another.

Does anyone know why this is happening and how to fix?

Where do you have gqrx from and how did you install it exactly as ther seems no official openSUSE repo which ships gqrx. Please post the exact home repo URL…there are several broken/unresolvable home builds…

@rick71 Hi, you need to add your user to the rtlsdr group, logout/login and should be good to go.

@hui hamradio and hamradio:sdr :wink:

Thank you.
I had added my user to that group hours ago and restarted. I thought I had restarted after adding my user to the group. Any way, this last restart resulted in successful gqrx startup,
Thanks again.
