hi
it has been so long since i have changed os's that i have forgotten how to fix this problem. i can run arduino as sudo and not regular user, if i'm correct i need to be added to the dial out group or the permission of /dev/ttyACM0 needs to be changed?

in the arduino software it will not let me change the serial port the menu item is grayed out and the soft ware is trying to use com1 on a Linux machine lol

could some one point me in the right direction?

You can check if you belong to the dialout group by entering "groups" in a command shell. If you are not a member of dialout, then add it to your user like this:
Code: [Select]
sudo usermod -aG dialout myusername
You must log out and back in again for the change to take.

thanks SurferTim
i found it way late latter that night

Arduino 1.0 and Arduino UNO on Debian squeeze (6.0.3)
5. Ofcourse you don't want to be running the arduino ide as root, so add your user to the groups tty and dialout like so:
sudo usermod -a -G tty yourUserName
sudo usermod -a -G dialout yourUserName
Log off and log on again for the changes to take effect!

Debian squeeze, ubuntu, xubuntu
