cat returns pico:x:502:bob
ls -l of /dev/bus/usb/001/009 returns
crw-rw---- 1 root pico 189, 8 Apr 29 22:08 /dev/bus/usb/001/009
A script is checking that the user is in the pico group with
usergroups=$(id -Gn) id -Gn returns bob at the command line
# Determine whether the user is in the group of the file
grouptest=$(echo \ $usergroups\ | sed "s/.*\ \($group\)\ .*/\1/")
I'am not a sed person so I would not know if the above is correct or not
but it does work when logged in as root
