[MonoDevelop] Inappropriate permissions on device!

How can I configure MonoDevelop IDE to Run/Debug with sudo permissions?

I have a program which communicates with an FTDI USB device using libftdi.
Every time I run or debug using the IDE, I get the following message:

Unhandled Exception: System.Exception: inappropriate permissions on device!

In order for me to run or test the executable, I'd go to the Terminal and
type "sudo mono helloworld.exe". I'd want to debug the code line by line but
before I could step into the code, unhandled exceptions comes up.

Is there any way to configure the debugger with superuser permissions? What
could be the problem here?

Note: I'm new to Linux and Mono.

Your help will be very much appreciated.
