ArchLabs Linux

Dialout group?

Hi!
I’m delighted with Archlabs. I’ve been using Bunsenlabs for some time but at the end I moved to Archlabs, I feel it is more complete and easier to use.
However I’ve run into trouble when trying to port my microcontroller development tool (Thonny IDE). When I try to access /dev/ttyACM0 to connect to my pyboards I get a “permission denied” message. On Bunsenlabs it was easy to solve adding my username to the “dialout” group. But that group does not exist in Archlabs, doing

sudo gpasswd -a  $USER dialout

tells me there is no dialout group here…
Could you please help me with this?. Is there any equivalent group in Archlabs?.
Thanks in advance.
Jes.

Hello @jesito, the equivalent group on Arch based distributions is uucp.
