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

  • You want to post as an answer or should I just close this out of stupidity?
