[Nut-upsuser] New Tripplite UPS: INTERNET350U

Hello Charles,

Thank you for your suggestion, however it didn't help.  I was running it as
root but I went ahead and added the -u root anyways.  Nothing changed.  So
part or all the problem is that I don't have the "libhidups or
libhid.usermap" files that the man page talks about:

You also need to install manually the legacy hotplug files (libhidups and
libhid.usermap, generally in /etc/hotplug/usb/), or the udev file
(nut-usbups.rules, generally in /etc/udev/rules.d/) to address the
permission settings problem. For more information, refer to the README file
in nut/scripts/hotplug or nut/scripts/udev.

How can I get them and do I really need them?

I copied and modified "/lib/udev/rules.d/52-nut-usbups.rules" and added the

   e.g. TrippLite INTERNET350U  - usbhid-ups

ATTR{idVendor}=="09ae", ATTR{idProduct}=="2010", MODE="664", GROUP="nut"

Thank you for your time and Patience
