I would like to encourage you to also check out this question and see if your knowledge can be valuable there. :)

Wow, after so many googling I never came across this. I upvoted your answer. I will try it out when I am at work. Any specific reason for 55? I always use the idea that "numberless entries are processed last, so it's best to skip numbers for custom entries."

comment Why doesn't xsetwacom work from udev?
I upvoted your answer for the details, but I am not sure this is correct for the following reason: I tried using sleep with a bunch of seconds. When plugging in, the tablet works after less than a second, so by the time the commands get executed, the device is already detected and in use by X. But still it doesn't work?

comment How to execute a shellscript when I plug-in a USB-device
This is interesting! It seems that it has no permission to write to /log/. It does write to /tmp/. I guess it had no permission to read my previous testscripts either.

Yes, I do that after every edit of the rules to try them out. I edited the question accordingly. This is the way udev works for a while now, but I am running 3.5.0-23-generic.

comment How to run custom scripts upon USB device plug-in?
I tried that too, but since it works for you, I must be missing a step. I have moved this question here, so I can write example code.

Is this answer still valid? Under no amount of fiddling can I get the script to execute (and touch a file). If you can provide the most basic example that executes a script when anything is plugged in, that would be great and we can work from there.
