I'm trying to set up the DAW Bitwig Studio on my Ubuntu Laptop and when I run it from terminal it crashes due to some files associated with it not having permissions. Is there a way to change permissions for all files associated with the program with chmod?
Edit: For some extra information I am currently using Ubuntu 18.04. I installed bitwig with the .deb installer provided by the website. and this is what it says in the terminal when I try to run Bitwig:
