Since I updated from Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) to Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin), I am unable to access the device connected in /ttyUSB0 if I don't have root access.
To be more specific, I use a USB-to-serial com port converter to access and configure Cisco equipment with software called PuTTY. It happens that, since I upgraded to 12.04, PuTTY only sees the connected device when I run it as
gksudo putty. If not, it says "unable to connect to port /ttyUSB0".
I have managed to change the permissions via
chmod 666, and it works, but if I disconnect the USB device and reconnect, it goes back to root only. How do I permanently allow non-root access? I have a clue it might be via udev rules, but I have no idea how to do it.
Obs.: Manufacturer and drivers are "PROLIFIC"
