KDG1955 I don't understand how to mark your answer as the answer. I think the answer is that you've confirmed that just logging out and back into Gnome isn't a log out at all. I don't know if that's a feature or a bug and frankly I'm really sick of this site as every post has to go through moderation. I can't upvote you. My text formatted is screwed with. This is flat out frustrating to have any kind of conversation here without it taking days rather than minutes. Thanks for your help, I'll go elsewhere where posting isn't such a pain in the ass.

I don't recall this being the case in previous releases. You see what I am saying then? Using the log out of Gnome isn't actually logging me out. Is this a bug or a feature?

This site is screwing up the formatting of my message.

I typed groups at the prompts.

Look my question is simple. I added a group, as I already showed. I then added myself to that groups. I then log out and then log back in and I don't see myself being added to the group. What doesn't make sense to you?

How do I get this site to exactly reproduce the sentence the way I typed it in. It's removes new lines and scrwewing up the formatting. I want it the way I typed it in. I don't want it removing spaces, line breaks or anything else. This is a technical site. The way I typed it in MATTERS

the same groups I already had, but not the new one.

Here is an example of everything...

$ groups marek wheel web backups freenas groupa

$ sudo groupadd -g 1502 groupb $ sudo usermod -a -G groupb marek

[marek@xps-9550 ~]$ groups marek wheel web backups freenas groupa

If I reboot I get the new group. But if merely log out and then log back in from Gnome, I don't. I thought logging out and back in via Gnome would log me out entirely and logging in would have given me the new group upon log in.

Are you able to repeat these steps and does it work for you? Are you getting the new group?

I use the SOCKS v5 proxy into my home SSH server as well. Made a YouTube video of it. https://youtu.be/_ztITv5gFtQ

2017-04-16 01:32:27 -0600 asked a question group rights log out and back in

I created a couple new groups in the command line and then added myself to those two groups. And then using Gnome in Fedora 25 I logged out and then back in. I was expecting to have the group rights applied to my account, but that didn't happen.

if I grep my name against /etc/group I see them there. If I type the command, groups I do not have them applied to my account. I thought all I needed to do was log out and back in and those group rights should be applied. But it doesn't seem to be working. Is this a known bug or something else? What am I missing?
