USBView must be started as root

USBView on Gnome - started by /usr/share/applications/usbview.desktop
gives ERROR.
Reason: must run as root.
Exec=pkexec usbview does not work?! (Passwordbox appears, then: nothing happens…)

This message is printed when installing usbview:

>>> Debugfs must be mounted in order to use usbview.
>>> As root execute:
>>> "mount -t debugfs none /sys/kernel/debug" or add
>>> "none /sys/kernel/debug debugfs defaults 0 0"
>>> to /etc/fstab
