As Martin said: Both your USRP as your UHD installation work pretty well!
The only thing is that you need to run it as root (the sudo part), and 
that's not a good thing.
Can you make sure that /etc/udev/rules.d/ contains the uhd.rules 
file[1]? If not, copy it over from 
/usr/local/lib/uhd/utils/uhd-usrp.rules, e.g. like
sudo cp /usr/local/lib/uhd/utils/uhd-usrp.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/

and then reboot.

The next time you plug in your USRP, it should no longer be only 
accessible by root.

Best regards,

[1] You said earlier you did

cd usr/lib/uhd/utils
sudo cp uhd-usrp.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/
sudo udevadm control --reload-rules
sudo udevadm trigger

but that's not the right path, if uhd is installed to /usr/local/...
