Asus ROG Chakram Core mouse driver

kernel: usb 1-7.1: device descriptor read/all, error -71
says Manjaro at time.
This is a missing driver issue; manjaro does fallback to HID-driver.
There is a driver on GITHUB:

But I am to stupid to install the driver…
systemd-udevd[403]: /etc/udev/rules.d/50-rogdrv.rules:2 Unknown group ‘plugdev’, ignoring

Error has gone after:
sudo groupadd plugdev
sudo usermod -a -G plugdev (username)
error kernel: usb 1-7.1: device descriptor read/all, error -71
persists, as the mousedriver is not compatible with this mouse…
Have contacted Asus - but they are corrupted - laughing about “want a linux driver”…

Works because:
sudo dmesg | grep CHAKRAM

randomly, this error does not occur on restart. Timing-problem???
EDIT after some investigations:
added to /etc/modprobe.d a file “options” with contents:

options usbcore old_scheme_first=N    
options usbcore use_both_schemes=Y
options usbcore autosuspend=-1

Commands need to be given as root - sudo is not enough!
Simpler solution is to add boot-parameter:
No errror anymore… Sollft! :innocent:
