How to let users use new group rights without having to logging out

Jan 28th, 2010 | Filed under gentoo, problems

Have you everĀ  added users to a group andĀ  they do not have access to the rights of that group until they login again?

Instead of telling them to log out and login again (sounds like MS solution?) they can type:

newgrp name_of_a_group

For more details read
man newgrp
