/etc/security.group.conf is in place and id confirmes that the user belongs to the groups you have listed in
group.conf but it stil does not work.

This can be solved by adding the users to plugdev group in /etc/group on the workstation. I guess I dont have to explain why this a bad solution.
What is the better way? How is it done on skolelinux workstations?

I tried adding the groups: teachers and students instead of users to
/etc/group but that does not work

If you correctly applied the ldap.tar.gz tarball provided on


all users are added to a few groups at login time using the pam_group
module. See 'man group.conf'.
My /etc/security/group.conf says:
*; *; *; Al0000-2400; audio,cdrom,floppy,fuse,plugdev,video,scanner

If 'id' shows your user in the group and it still doesn't work, the
error must be somewhere else.
