That works, but the permissions will probably be reset after a reboot 
upor reinsertion of the USB serial adapter.

I'm running Linux Mint, which is based on Ubuntu. On my computer 
/dev/ttyUSB*, as created, are owned by the 'dialout' group. The command 
'ls -l /dev/ttyUSB0' should show you the owner and group, it might not 
be 'dialout' on your system.

Assuming that your user name is 'username' and the group of /dev/ttyUSB0 
is 'dialout' then you can then add your own user to this group with the 

sudo adduser username dialout

That way your user account will automatically have permission to use any 
serial ports on the system.
