Ubuntu: Opening/using serial ports as a normal user (without sudo)

A really quick post on how to open/use serial ports without root privileges.

You need to add your user to the dialout group, using the following command:

sudo adduser yourusername dialout

Replace "yourusername" with your username... (e.g. jorge)

You need a reboot to apply the changes.

That's all!
