Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

yes, when you change groups settings, you have to relogin to use the new perms. You could just su user i.e. su to yourself to make that happen via the CLI. exit being the equivalent of logging out / undo. Or reboot / relogin / and other means to an end. But it was basically a permissions issue, you weren't in the optical group. Which I guess fixed your problem when you were added and it took effect.
