August 21, 2013

Hello folks,

Sometimes you need to verify if your user belongs to a group with the right permissions to perform a task; this is easily done in the following way:

  1. Open a shell
  2. type the following code

this command will show you the groups you belong to (it defaults to the logged user).
You can also use it to find out any other user’s group by simply typing:

groups user_name
