Kubuntu+Broken udev


Hi

I somehow seem to have broken my udev on my Kubuntu Edgy system. When I attach a device the kernel sees it, but nothing happens after that. Before, when I attached a device udev/hal would kick in and handle the automount.

I've tried reinstalling udev and hal with
apt-get --reinstall udev
apt-get --reinstall hal
but that seems to make no difference.

I'm pretty sure that its a permissions thing because when I go to /media I see directories for usb devices usb0-usb7 which I assume shouldn't be there.
The problem started after I followed the ThinkWiki HOWTO for setting up the fingerprint reader which requires you to change permissions.

I changed permissions on /proc/bus/usb and /dev/bus/usb
Here are some permissions

Anyone have any idea of how I might be able to solve this problem without reinstalling?
