Hello Greg,

I had only one doubt though the tool seems to work for rooted users only?
when i try to launch it as a normal user it gives me error saying,

Can not open the file /sys/kernel/debug/usb/devices

Verify that you have USB compiled into your kernel,
have the USB core modules loaded, and have the
usbdevfs filesystem mounted


That problem gets solved when using root user, is it because of the
reason that i have to mount usbdevfs for my current user?
The earlier usbview v1.1 tool required that that is why i am asking you.
