Ok I found a tutorial on the RedHat site, I have to use the device ID
provided by usbguard. 

I was following the instruction on the usbguard home page where its says
to use the USB device ID: https://usbguard.github.io/documentation/rule-language.html

So running usbguard allow-device -p 19 gives now
the following error:
IPC ERROR: request id=1: FileRuleSet saving: /etc/usbguard/rules.conf: Read-only file system

ls -l /etc/usbguard/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 15. Mai 22:16 IPCAccessControl.d
-rw------- 1 root root 2449 10. Mai 17:43 rules.conf
-rw------- 1 root root 5760 10. Mai 17:29 usbguard-daemon.conf

So as far as I can see root should be able to write the rulse.conf file

Anyway still not working.
