  • Ubuntu 12.04 - Troubleshooting USB and the grayed out Serial Port
    • sudo usermod -a -G dialout myusername
    • sudo usermod -a -G tty myusername
    • Deprecated solution (need to do everytime):
      • Changing the permissions on /dev/ttyACM0 to world readable and writeable fixed the grayed out serial port.
      • I ran  sudo chmod a+rw /dev/ttyACM0 and the serial port menu worked again. 
  • Fix slowness and menu bar color issue 
               #comment out this line:
               #java -Dswing.defaultlaf=com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel processing.app.Base 
               #change it to this:
               java processing.app.Base
