change permissions for accessing Kinect in Linux

I’m running oF08 on Mint 15, both fresh installs as of yesterday.

I’m trying to get a Kinect configured with oF. When I run the app through Code::Blocks I can’t access the device. When I run the app from the command line with root I have no problems.

How can I change the permissions for the Kinect to be able to run my app within Code::Blocks? I’m thinking this will make the work flow a little faster and smoother.

Many thanks in advance.
