Ubuntu – Problem in connecting to Atmel Corp. AVR ISP mkII and FT232 USB-Serial (UART) IC


I am using ubuntu 16.04 for programming purposes. When I am trying to connect to my "Atmel Corp. AVR ISP mkII microcontroller" & "FT232 USB-Serial (UART) IC" through my controller software application it doesn't get connected and gives out an error that "inappropriate permissions on device!".

When I plug in the device, it is seen as /dev/ttyUSB0 being an FTDI chip.

Any Idea on how to make the device get connected?

Add your user to the appropriate group - dialout with the command below:

sudo usermod -a -G dialout $USER

then logout and login back.
