Tip of the Week

  • As a Linux user you may need to see what user groups you are included in. I am not referring to a LUG or Linux User Groups but instead the groups your linux system user is a part of for permissions on your system.
    • although DLN Community is a great group of Linux users so you should consider getting involved in the community whether thats via the DLNForum.com, the Matrix chat room, or many other options.
  • Why would you want to do this?
    • maybe for some reason your user cant elevate privileges via sudo.
    • you’d need to make sure your user is part of the sudoers group
    • and in some cases for virtual machines and other reasons.
  • To list all the groups a user is apart of simply type: $ id [username] -p
  • If you’re just wanting to check the current users groups simply type $ id -p
  • there is the command ‘groups’:
    • but id can give you the numeric values and the symbolic names
    • groups will only return symbolic names
      • the numeric values would come in handy when dealing with network-shared data for example
  • lot of other switches available in i-d:
    • A Display the process audit user ID and other process audit properties, which requires privilege.
    • F Display the full name of the user.
    • G Display the different group IDs (effective, real and supplementary) as white-space separated numbers, in no particular order.
