http://askubuntu.com – I need to create a file in Ubuntu to use a USB cradle to upload Cycling data. I found instructions using google but am unable to create a file using touch. Any help would be appreciated. This is the direction I am trying to follow: Create a file /etc/udev/rules/powertap.rules containing the following line: SYSFS{idVendor}=="0403", SYSFS{idProduct}=="6001", MODE="666", GROUP="plugdev" (HowTos)
