Hi, I'm a newbie Arch Linux user. I have managed to install Arduino on my computer but I can't upload to the selected development board and I get the following error message:

Arduino: 1.8.16 (Linux), Board: "Arduino Uno"

Sketch uses 980 bytes (3%) of program storage space. Maximum is 32256 bytes.
Global variables use 9 bytes (0%) of dynamic memory, leaving 2039 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2048 bytes.
An error occurred while uploading the sketch
avrdude: ser_open(): can't open device "/dev/ttyUSB0": Permission denied

This report would have more information with
"Show verbose output during compilation"
option enabled in File -> Preferences.

How can I grant permission to my development boards connected to my computer?

Thanks for the response. i tried what's in the link but unfortunately nothing is working...

Could this help?

Which part? This part?

This part (and a log out/in) is all that is needed to give a user access to the serial port. I know this because I have used this many times.

(Of course, you also have to choose the correct port in the Arduino software.)

Nothing at all? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

If you can provide more specific information then someone might be able to help you. "Nothing works" is pretty terrible as a description of a problem.
