Unusable until 0.7.8, because, if you try to allow a device permanently, you'll get

IPC ERROR: request id=1: FileRuleSet saving: /etc/usbguard/rules.conf: Read-only file system

usbguard-0.7.8 has been released on 20/05/2020.

usbguard-0.7.5 has been released since Jul 28, 2019.

It also removed the PoC qt application, so the following dependencies should be removed: "qt5-base" "qt5-svg" "qt5-tools"

The usbguard-git package after commit should work just fine with linux 4.13. I've pushed an update to trigger rebuilds.

For those having problems, it's a bug on usbguard, wherein this version does not provide support for Linux 4.13. See more information at

For those who want to have a compatible version, clone and follow the instructions on "Ubuntu 16.04 (LTS)" (to include `--with-gui-qt=qt4 --enable-systemd`).

I got repeated messages from QT about not having a systray icon and when plugging USB, permission dialog doesn't appear.

@zezadas, I can't reproduce this. Building in a fresh VM (with i3) results in a working applet for me.

What exactly is not working? Do you get an error message when launching the applet from shell?

usbguard-applet-qt is not working.
Compiling with "--with-gui-qt=qt4" solved it.

Figured as much. I've added a patch that disables just this particular regression test. I plan on doing a stable package soon™ :)

the checks work as expected, if you enable cs_CZ.UTF-8 and de_DE.UTF-8 in /etc/locale.gen and rebuild locales (locale-gen). the locales are only required to run the regression check, so disabling the tests is a valid option.
maybe add a comment about the checks and the requirements of the locales?

are you interested in maintainging a stable version of this software as well? if not, i would do this.
