lsusb not showing hwids info [solved]

Hi everyone,

I'm been having this issue since from the start with Artix. When I execute lsusb (both as normal user or as superuser), the information regarding Bus and Device sections is presented as it should, also the vendor and device IDs are OK; however, there is no description displayed.

It currently shows:
Code: [Select]
$ lsusb
Bus 009 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 
Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 534d:0021 
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 
Bus 006 Device 003: ID 0a12:0001 
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 125f:a15a 
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 2109:0811 
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002

when it is supposed to show something like this:
Code: [Select]
$ lsusb
Bus 009 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001  Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002  Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001  Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 125f:a15a  A-DATA Technology Co., Ltd.  DashDrive Durable HD710 portable HDD various size
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003  Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 2109:0811  VIA Labs, Inc. Hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002  Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

I've manually found the information in /usr/share/hwdate/usb.ids, so it is there; yet, lsusb is not using it and I don't know how to force it to it.

Any help will be really appreciated.

Regards.

lsusb -t or lsusb -v or if you really want to know lsusb -h

Hi,

the flags you mention provide different output from the expected. For instance.
Code: [Select]
$ lsusb -t

/:  Bus 08.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ohci-pci/3p, 12M
/:  Bus 07.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ohci-pci/3p, 12M
/:  Bus 06.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ohci-pci/3p, 12M
    |__ Port 2: Dev 3, If 0, Class=, Driver=btusb, 12M

Show us the output of
Code: [Select]
alias | grep usb
and
Code: [Select]
pacman -Qi usbutils

on usbutils there are several utils, lsusb is one of them.
$ usb-devices

Provides plenty of data.

There is an admin tool also
$ sudo /usr/bin/usbhid-dump --help

Current (009) version of lsusb relies completely on udevd to provide vendor and device strings. eudevd gets the strings from hwdb, not from usb.ids.
Check /usr/lib/udev/hwdb.d/ for *usb* files, and /run/udev/data/+usb* for ID_VENDOR_FROM_DATABASE keys.

Hi, again!

Well, the files are there too:
Code: [Select]
$ find /usr/lib/udev/hwdb.d/ -name *usb* -type f
/usr/lib/udev/hwdb.d/20-usb-classes.hwdb
/usr/lib/udev/hwdb.d/20-usb-vendor-model.hwdb

$ find /run/udev/data/ -name *usb* -type f
/run/udev/data/+usb:6-2:1.0
/run/udev/data/+usb:6-2:1.1
/run/udev/data/+usb:2-1:1.0
/run/udev/data/+usb:8-0:1.0
/run/udev/data/+usb:2-0:1.0
/run/udev/data/+usb:9-0:1.0
/run/udev/data/+usb:7-0:1.0
/run/udev/data/+usb:6-0:1.0
/run/udev/data/+usb:3-0:1.0
/run/udev/data/+usb:1-0:1.0
/run/udev/data/+usb:4-0:1.0
/run/udev/data/+usb:5-0:1.0

What should I do now?

Regards.

After doing some more research, I found this:
Code: [Select]
udevadm --debug hwdb --update
and voilĂ , it worked properly.
Code: [Select]

Thanks to everyone who tried to assist me.
