    If you are using a release without adb tools packaged in the repo, you also need the udev rule set.

    Just google "udev android".

    I've supposedly flashed TWRP, but everytime I boot into recovery, I get the same CyanogenMod Simple Recovery, and can't continue. Any thoughts?

    Ok thanks, but what is the purpose of doing this? I'm just a noob and i don't get what are those "privileges" that provide a rooted phone and Ubuntu.
    Can someone explain?

    Gaining root privileges on your phone means that you have full control on it. You can install apps that need special permissions to work properly since they operate at a deeper level than normal apps.

    Example: Greenify, Titanium Backup.

    Information added:

    If adb devices output looks like this:

    * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
    * daemon started successfully *
    List of devices attached
    ???????????? no permissions


    Run these commands:

    sudo adb kill-server
    sudo adb start-server
    sudo adb devices

    if you flash TWRP, OTA is broken. But if you only boot into TWRP via fastboot (sudo fastboot boot TWRP.img), the stock recovery will stay in place and OTA should be working
    see also: https://forums.oneplus.net/threads/like-a-boss-how-to-root-your-oneplus-one.58493/
    Notice that using this method you won't actually install TWRP, so you won't be able to flash ROMS without using your computer to boot into TWRP
