[Thread] Gipsy in Fedora 15, permissions
I cannot transfer data from GPS to Gipsy. It says "open: Permission denied". How can I get permissions for such transfer in Linux?
Thank you in advance and look forward to hearing from you...
P.S. I had incredible flight I would like to download within the due date. :)

probably you need to fix device permissinos, try this command in a terminal:
(this one to become root, you'll be asked for your password)
chmod 777 /dev/ttyS*
or, if you use an serial/USB converter:
chmod 777 /dev/ttyUSB*
(all unharmful things that you can easily revert to the original state just with a reboot)
Once issued the commands, retry with GiPSy.
