Hello, I have a question concerning minicom. If I use it as a root it works fine. However, if I try as a normal user no. What I did is to add my user to the dialout group

$sudo usermod -a -G dialout <username>

I logged out and logged in back after launching this command. But now if I try to launch minicom I get this lock message

$minicom -D /dev/ttyACM0 
Cannot create lockfile for /dev/ttyACM0: Permission denied

Probably because I configured minicom as a root. Any idea on how to solve the problem? In some forums I found that the configuration file is in /etc/minicom/... but in Fedora25 I do not have this directory. Thanks!
