fbdev can't be used by none-root users


Hi friends:
I ran 'mplayer -vo fbdev FILE.wmv' in console mode with framebuffer, succeeded with root authority but failed with none-root authority. Similar thing happend when I ran fbxine. How to change the devices that they could be used by none-root users?

As a temporary fix you can always chown root.video /dev/fb0, assuming your user is in video group.

After watched the movie you can revert it to default with chown root.root /dev/fb0
If you run udev, the permission will be reset automatically at boot
