Have the Yaesu 857 w/ oem serial cable, then a good FTDI Serial/usb adapter.  Running Linux Mint 19.3.  

Got the dreaded error [Errno 13] could not open port /dev/ttyS0: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/dev/ttyS0'

Searched long and hard, Done everything, Dan and others say to do,  carefully, no luck.  Here's some commands and results:

Pete, N2EXG


sudo gpasswd --add $holmzie dialoutgives me      gpasswd: user 'dialout' does not exist
Groupsholmzie adm cdrom sudo dip plugdev lpadmin sambashare
sudo addgroup $holmzie dialout
