This question already has an answer here:
I'm trying to add myself to the fuse user group but it doesn't look like the change is taking effect even though /etc/group looks correct after invoking addgroup or usermod.
I've tried both ...
sudo addgroup fjohnson fuse
sudo usermod -a -G fuse fjohnson
/etc/group shows the change
but I can't read
-rw-r----- 1 root fuse 215 Oct 16 10:39 /etc/fuse.conf
cat: /etc/fuse.conf: Permission denied
and groups(1) returns
fjohnson adm dialout cdrom plugdev lpadmin admin sambashare
