Yep I found that topic. Got it working. And moved on to configuring my plasmac and I set go through the steps and it set up the configuration, I try to open it through a terminal command and I get permission denied. I figure it has something to do with trying with a bash command, how do I go around this. When open linuxcnc my configuration are not showing up either

Most probably you have run the configurator with "sudo", and that is not good, nowhere is the use of sudo mentioned in the configurator user manual.
Open file browser, right click on linuxcnc folder, click on properties. On the next screen select the permissions tab, set all to read and write.

Up would be the correct direction.

So do you have any configs under
~/linuxcnc/configs ?

Also from the command line, in that folder type sudo ls ./*.*

If that shows additional files you have a permissions issue so you will have to use sudo to give yourself read, write, execute permissions.

If not, you might have set it up somehow in an invalid folder that you don't have permissions for (eg not in your home folder).

That looks ok, assuming the config we are looking at is plasma now do
ls -l plasma/
Do not use sudo for anything unless it is absolutely necessary. It is a bad habit to get into.
