Groups question


So, I have created a group and added myself to it.

When I open /etc/group I can see the group and it shows that I am a member, but when I run $ groups - it doesn't show the new group in the list. What could be the issue?

Yes, just groups, but as current user, not su

P.S. Figured I add this - the new group shows when I run groups <myusername> and when I run id <myusername>, just not when I run groups by itself.

Possible answer:
You didn't log out and log back in yet - so your current ~process~ hasn't become a group member yet.
Answer: new login shell - logout and log back in.

"Hello IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again?"

Yes definitely you have to logout and login again as said.
