Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I installed incron on my Raspberry Pi as you would any other package:

$ sudo apt-get install incron

I went to edit my incrontab...

$ incrontab -e
user 'pi' is not allowed to use incron

I checked the install of incron and, sure enough, it created a group named incron. Alright, so clearly I just need to add myself to that group and I'm home free, right?

$ sudo usermod -a -G incron pi
$ incrontab -e
user 'pi' is not allowed to use incron

Wrong. Thinking like a Windows man, I restarted my Pi with no luck. Any ideas, superusers?

According to the man page for the conf file it looks like you add users to /etc/incron.allow –  demure May 17 '13 at 2:29
    
You want to post as an answer or should I just close this out of stupidity? –  kevlar1818 May 17 '13 at 2:31
