Look it up. :D

In my research for gps information I discovered I was supposed to be in "dialout" group.

So [Menu] [Groups] = Users and Groups

Click your name (computers name)

jcj is Administrator for my unit. I went ahead and clicked all the boxes. Ummm maybe administrator was already a member but I did it anyway.

Seems important.

J'd
Checked it with Terminal
Code:
jcj@jcj-CF-74JCJBDAM ~ $ groups jcj
jcj : jcj root daemon bin sys adm tty disk lp mail news uucp man proxy kmem dialout fax voice cdrom floppy tape sudo audio dip www-data backup operator list irc src gnats shadow utmp video sasl plugdev staff games users nogroup libuuid crontab syslog fuse messagebus ssl-cert netdev vboxsf mlocate ssh avahi-autoipd lpadmin rtkit bluetooth avahi pulse pulse-access sambashare scanner colord saned mdm
jcj@jcj-CF-74JCJBDAM ~ $

Thanks Jeff, this reference helped me along with your post (of course):

I was not in the dialout group until you posted this.
Why, there is even a dialup group:
