Stil, as long as proj is not the primary group of john, he is not able to create directories or files. As soon as john makes his primary group proj, it works.



Sounds like John just needs to log out and back in again. There's little effective difference between primary and supplementary groups.


It still doesn't work. However, I checked the group membership of john after applying "gpasswd -a john proj" and -- even after exit and creating a new terminal -- the command "groups" does not show proj. It only shows john as group, while f.i. root has a whole bunch of groups.


Is gpasswd the wrong utility here?

Guus.
