[workaround] spice-client-error-quark: Could not redirect

I have a problem with redirecting USB devices in virt-manager.

It worked some time ago without any hassle but now when I try to redirect usb printer or any other device I get following error message:

spice-client-error-quark: Could not redirect Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. ML-2160 Series [04e8:330f] at 1-3: Could not open usb device: Access denied (insufficient permissions) [-3] (0)

It says I have insufficient permissions but I haven't changed anything in perms since I installed virt-manager, libvirtd and qemu. I run my guests as nobody:kvm (default config). I'm asked about my user's password when starting virt-manager.

It looks like some recent (about two weeks period) updated messed up with usb redirection or I'm missing some configuration.

$ pacman -Q libvirt qemu virt-manager spice systemd
libvirt 1.3.2-3
qemu 2.5.0-1
virt-manager 1.3.2-3
spice 0.12.6-2
systemd 229-3

Re: [workaround] spice-client-error-quark: Could not redirect

Running virtual machine as root:root doesn't help either.

I also checked that /usr/bin/spice-client-glib-usb-acl-helper has suid set (according to some recommendation found on other forums).

Nothing helped so far. I hope it's not udev/systemd related.

Re: [workaround] spice-client-error-quark: Could not redirect

Seems to be something with the recent spice-gtk3 and spice-glib package.

My workaround was to force remove spice-gtk3 and spice-glib, install spice-glib, remove some of the files that preventend a downgrade and install the old spice-gtk3 package from the pacman cache.

sudo pacman -Rdd spice-gtk3 spice-glib

sudo pacman -S spice-glib

sudo rm /usr/bin/spicy-screenshot /usr/bin/spicy-stats /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/channel-cursor.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/channel-display.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/channel-inputs.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/channel-main.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/channel-playback.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/channel-port.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/channel-record.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/channel-smartcard.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/channel-usbredir.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/channel-webdav.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/smartcard-manager.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/spice-audio.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/spice-channel-enums.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/spice-channel.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/spice-client.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/spice-glib-enums.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/spice-option.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/spice-session.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/spice-types.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/spice-uri.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/spice-util.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/spice-version.h /usr/include/spice-client-glib-2.0/usb-device-manager.h /usr/include/spice-controller/spice-controller.h /usr/lib/girepository-1.0/SpiceClientGLib-2.0.typelib /usr/lib/libspice-client-glib-2.0.so /usr/lib/libspice-client-glib-2.0.so.8 /usr/lib/libspice-client-glib-2.0.so.8.5.0 /usr/lib/libspice-controller.so /usr/lib/libspice-controller.so.0 /usr/lib/libspice-controller.so.0.0.0 /usr/lib/pkgconfig/spice-client-glib-2.0.pc /usr/lib/pkgconfig/spice-controller.pc /usr/share/gir-1.0/SpiceClientGLib-2.0.gir /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpiceAudio.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpiceChannel.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpiceCursorChannel.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpiceDisplay.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpiceDisplayChannel.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpiceGtkSession.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpiceInputsChannel.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpiceMainChannel.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpicePlaybackChannel.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpicePortChannel.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpiceRecordChannel.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpiceSession.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpiceSmartcardChannel.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpiceSmartcardManager.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpiceUsbDeviceManager.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpiceUsbDeviceWidget.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpiceUsbredirChannel.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/SpiceWebdavChannel.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/annotation-glossary.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/api-index-deprecated.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/api-index-full.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/api-reference.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/application-support.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/ch01.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/ch02.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/ch03.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/home.png /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/index.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/index.sgml /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/left-insensitive.png /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/left.png /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/object-tree.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/right-insensitive.png /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/right.png /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/spice-gtk-SpiceURI.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/spice-gtk-Utilities.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/spice-gtk-spice-version.html /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/spice-gtk.devhelp2 /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/style.css /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/up-insensitive.png /usr/share/gtk-doc/html/spice-gtk/up.png /usr/share/locale/fr/LC_MESSAGES/spice-gtk.mo /usr/share/man/man1/spice-client.1.gz /usr/share/vala/vapi/spice-client-glib-2.0.deps /usr/share/vala/vapi/spice-client-glib-2.0.vapi /usr/share/vala/vapi/spice-protocol.vapi

Re: [workaround] spice-client-error-quark: Could not redirect

It works indeed. It's a bit complicated but thanks to your instructions I managed to make USB redirection work again.

Someone knows if it is a know and reported bug or should we file one somewhere?

Re: [workaround] spice-client-error-quark: Could not redirect

I have faced the same issue - glad, that I'm not the only one. I could "temporarily" fix this issue by starting virt-manager as root via console: sudo virt-manager. I've tried several configurations, added my user to kvm and libvirt groups, but nothing helped. Wonder, what's the problem, cause this used to work without any hassle in the past.

Re: [workaround] spice-client-error-quark: Could not redirect

I had the exact same error, so it's definitely a bug upstream somewhere. Unfortunately, you're fix didn't work for me. After I ran the commands I just got another error:

Re: [workaround] spice-client-error-quark: Could not redirect

Upstream packages are bugged. Issue https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/48829 seems to be related. It has been updated to 0.31 upstream and flagged out-of-date in Arch repo on 21th march. The update should be available soon (and most probably fixes our issues). Also, they have changed **alot** USB related stuff after releasing 0.31, better be prepared to downgrade next time.

Copy the text for each box into a text editor and save them into three separate directories named 'PKGBUILD'. Then cd into each of those directories in the order 1. spice-protocol 2. spice-glib 3. spice-gtk3, and type 'makepkg -s' followed by 'pacman -U *.xz'.

Re: [workaround] spice-client-error-quark: Could not redirect

Okay, thanks for you detailed explanation. But it doesn't work with "spice-glib" and I get the "error", that it's already installed....
After I updated the other packages I get the message in my windows-vm again:

"spice-client-error-quark: Could not redirect Garmin International Device [091e:26e5] at 2-4: Could not open usb device: Access denied (insufficient permissions) [-3] (0)"

What I did was uninstall spice-glib (pacman -R) before installing the newer version. As a consequence this uninstalled virt-manager for me, but I reinstalled virt-manager at the end of the process.

Okay, I don't understand it.... I just removed virt-manager, spice-glib and spice-gtk3 and did an "pacman -Syu" after it. It updated the system and after I reinstalled virt-manager and the other packages....
But the problem is there anymore sad...

Re: [workaround] spice-client-error-quark: Could not redirect

I can confirm that this problem persists.

Alas, it lets me redirect my scanner, but not any type of storage device (which is what i would need the most), but that was the already the case before version 0.31.

Re: [workaround] spice-client-error-quark: Could not redirect

I used to do :

cat <<EOF >/etc/polkit-1/rules.d/50-spice.rules
polkit.addRule(function(action, subject) {
    if (action.id == "org.spice-space.lowlevelusbaccess" &&
        subject.isInGroup("spice")) {
            return polkit.Result.YES;
    }
});
EOF

usermod -a -G spice $USER

It worked until today :-(

Re: [workaround] spice-client-error-quark: Could not redirect

But is there any bug reported so it can be reopened? The only one https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/48829 was closed as fixed which is certainly not true. Either USB redirection is not so important and rarely used feature by only few people or this issue is very specific to configuration and/or hardware and isn't very common.
