The better solution to this is to add yourself to the dialout group, using this command:
sudo usermod -G dialout -a $USER
Ten to make your new group membership available, you will need to restart your login session or your terminal window, depending on how you launch the arduino GUI.
I just got my redboard as part of the Sparkfun Inventor’s Kit.
I wanted to say that I had trouble finding the serial port with my linux laptop,
which is running a bleeding-edge Ubuntu 13.04.
The symptom was that the Arduino Tools menu item “Tools | Serial Port” was grayed out.
I did this to fix the permissions of the USB port:
sudo chmod 777 /dev/ttyUSB0
After that the “Serial Port” menu immediately became not
grayed out, turned to black enabled text and I could choose
the portcorrectly and connect to my redboard.
No public wish lists :(
