Built in HAL components not working

I have been compiling linuxcnc and running it in place. When I launch it I cannot open the hal config or calibration windows from the dropdown menu(in Axis). I can however add "loadusr halshow" to the main hal file and it will open that window at the start of the program. I have not been able to figure out how to do the same thing with the calibration window.

The specific error I am getting is that for halshow.tcl or emccalib.tcl permission is denied.

Any idea how to get the calibration window working? I have a ton of tuning to do and I'd rather not need to edit the .ini and restart everything after each change.

How are you launching LinuxCNC from the RIP?

You have to source the rip environment each time you open a terminal
. ./scripts/rip-environment

For the sake of completeness, here is all the steps
Open a terminal in the installed top most directory.
cd src
./autogen.sh
./configure --with-realtime=uspace

Next compile by typing
make

if realtime behavior and hardware access are required
sudo make setuid

Before running the software, set the environment
cd ..
. ./scripts/rip-environment

To run the software type
linuxcnc
