Notes

Running as an unprivileged user

The rtl-sdr project comes with udev rules, so you can access the device as a regular user. To install the udev rules:

~$ cd src/rtl-sdr/
~/src/rtl-sdr$ sudo cp rtl-sdr.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/
~/src/rtl-sdr$ sudo service udev restart
Stopping the hotplug events dispatcher: udevd.
Starting the hotplug events dispatcher: udevd.

Now if you eject and re-insert your USB stick, udev should set the correct permissions.
