Cannot open map file firmware.map: Permission denied

I’ve just installed platformio on a new system (ubuntu 16.04) using the python3 easy install script. When I try and compile a project it fails during the linking process with a permission error. Am I missing a step?

$ pio run
....
....

Looks like you did everything from root. Remove /home/xxx/.platformio and never use root with PlatformIO.
