I've noticed that when I add myself to a new group with
usermod newgroup -g wayne I will have the group listed when I say
groups, but if I were to do something such as
sudo mkidr /usr/local/grouptest sudo chown root:newgroup /usr/local/grouptest cd /usr/local/grouptest touch test.txt touch: cannot touch `test.txt': Permission denied
I get permission denied. When I'm connected across a ssh session, I have to re-connect and then the permissions are in effect for that directory. Is there a way to get around that? Especially since using GNU screen, I would have to kill and re-create all my windows which would be incredibly pesky.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
