I'm trying to mount a webdav as a regular user. I've followed the wiki exactly but when I try to mount the folder in the end, I receive the error that I'm not part of the network group, even though I am.
$ mount owncloud /sbin/mount.davfs: user brandon must be member of group network
The "groups" command gives different results depending on if I specify my username or not. I have no idea what that means. Yes, I'm logged in as my user right now.
$ grep network /etc/group network:x:90:brandon $ groups lp wheel games video audio optical storage power users $ groups brandon lp wheel games network video audio optical storage power users

My spider senses are telling me that it's somehow polkit related but my attempts to find anything about mounting or dav in the XML vomit of the NetworkManager policy file has led me nowhere. Seems like I'm missing something obvious. Any ideas?

Nevermind, I asked too soon. I simply had to log out and then log back in again to apply the group change.
Now formatting my harddrive and banishing myself to Windows 3.11.
