Permissions

Depending on OS, you may get an error that looks something like

cannot open device with path 0001:0004:00

If this happens, it is likely because your user doesn't have permissions for the PowerMate device. In Linux (specifically Raspbian), creating the file /etc/udev/rules/95-powermate.rules and entering the following text:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="077d", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0410", SYMLINK+="powermate", MODE="660", GROUP="input"

will assign the PowerMate device to the "input" group, which the pi user belongs to. For other OSs, change the GROUP entry to a group that your user belongs to.
