Thanks @GI_Jack. I removed the workaround and added such information in an install file.

rafaelff, serial does not need root privileges, users need to be part of the uucp group to operate serial ports.

Serial connection seems to require root privileges, so I added a script to enable that. For more information, see git commit message. Feedbacks are welcome.

It was done already. The answer was to go to the upstream, and the upstream didn't want add it. I also made this question to the maintainer :)

yes, you need putty installed. This package has no software, just the icon and menu configuration for putty because whoever decided to make the original package didn't include a .desktop or icon file. No idea why.

pacman -S putty
