I've got a new YubiKey Edge in the default shipped configuration that the YubiKey Personalization Tool v 1.14.1 / 3.1.14 is not finding.
Even though the key is inserted, the Personalization Tool shows the error "No YubiKey Inserted"

What do I need to do to the key to get it recognized by the YubiKey Personalization Tool?

This happens even when it is plugged in and the LED is lit, the tool 'lsusb' shows that the key is found

    $ lsusb |grep -i yubi
    Bus 003 Device 027: ID 1050:0403 Yubico.com

and if I press the button, I get a string of 44 characters (letters) plus a return. e.g.


It also is recognized in the validation service:


But the YubiKey Personalization Tool 1.14.1 on 64-bit Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS GNU/Linux is not finding it:

    $ lsb_release -rd
    Description:    Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS
    Release:        14.04

    $ apt-cache policy yubikey-personalization-gui
      Installed: 3.1.14-1
      Candidate: 3.1.14-1

    $ apt-cache policy yubikey-personalization
      Installed: 1.14.1-1
      Candidate: 1.14.1-1

It might be that the Ubuntu LTS package is out of date and may need repackaging. The YubiKey Personalization Tool found in OpenBSD-snapshots is version 3.1.20 with library version 1.17.1. It finds the usb key no problem.
