Hello,

I have made a linker application from your driver to skype. The application I have runs as a normal user, but from what I have tried your driver must be run as root. The problem I have is that the socket you make in your driver only gets read/write permissions for root, could you add the chmod command below to fix this issue, or let me know if i'm doing somthing wrong.

add
#include <sys/stat.h>

after
  serveur.sun_family=AF_UNIX;
  strcpy(serveur.sun_path,USBB2K_SOCKET);
  unlink(serveur.sun_path);
  len = strlen(serveur.sun_path)+sizeof(serveur.sun_family);
  if (bind(sock_serveur,(struct sockaddr *)&serveur,len) == -1){
    syslog(LOG_ERR,"bind");
    exit(1);
  }


add
//##########################################################################
set permissions on the socket so normal users have access
chmod(USBB2K_SOCKET, S_IRUSR | S_IWUSR | S_IRGRP | S_IWGRP |S_IROTH|S_IWOTH);
//###########################################################################

Thank you for your help and the nice code !
