mplab X in linux - can see but cannot program PIC32MZ / PIC32MX Starter kit in Hardware

I am trying to use MPLAB X in Linux Mint but cannot program either of my two Starter kit boards (PIC32MZ or PIC32MX Ethernet Starter kits).

When I plug them in, they show up in the Hardware tools under Microchip Kits. For example, I can see PIC32 ESK-II under the line Starter Kits (PKOB). But the small circle before that line stays Red, it does not turn Green. So I cannot select the device for programming. 

If I unplug that board, it is removed. Plugin the other and I get PIC32MZ EC Family, but again, still Red. 

What needs to be fixed in the system configuration to get this to work correctly?

Thanks!

    Could it be related to this?

    Yes, the hotplugscript was hanging.

    ATTR{idVendor}=="04d8", ATTR{idProduct}=="8107", MODE="666", GROUP="microchip", RUN+="%E{hotplugscript} add"

    Replaced with rules like this:
     
     
    ATTRS{idVendor}=="04d8", ATTRS{idProduct}=="00dd", MODE="666", GROUP="microchip",

    That works reasonably well.
