Fortunately the … : how does a stock Ubuntu 16.04 (which has not been upgraded from 14.04) accomplish this task? I.e. What's the canonical (and Canonical) way of doing it? And last but not least how can I determine in which user context a particular unit runs (or to be more precise: with which capabilities)? …
