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 
command:

sudo adduser username dialout

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