Pb-free/Low-power Platform Cable USB - 9.2 Linux driver permission settings must be manually set to enable the cable to function


The cable drivers are installed, but the cable is not accessible from a user login.


After the cable drivers are installed, the dev/windrvr file permissions must be set to at least 666 (rw-rw-rw-) for non-root users of the programming cables. If this change is not made, the cable will work as root, but you will not be able to use the cable.
