You don't use useradd to add a user to a group. You use useradd to create a user, hence the error message. Try: # usermod -a -G systemd-journal shirish or # gpasswd -a shirish systemd-journal In either case, you need to log in again to make it take effect. A quick-and-dirty way of doing this in a running shell is: $ exec su - shirish
