USBasp linux issues

If the following error occurs with an USBasp programmer on Linux (in the Arduino IDE):

avrdude: error: could not find USB device "USBasp" with vid=0x16c0 pid=0x5dc

Edit the udev rules:

cd /etc/udev/rules.d/

Create a new rule:

sudo nano 77-usbasp.rules

paste:

SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="16c0", ATTRS{idProduct}=="05dc", GROUP="plugdev", MODE="0667"

... save

sudo chmod 777 77-usbasp.rules
sudo chown -R "user"  77-usbasp.rules
/etc/init.d/udev restart

Now it should be possible to upload with USBasp and the Arduino IDE.

(Arduino 1.0.5 @ Xubuntu 14.04 LTS 64bit)
