Adding Users to Groups

Users must be added to cdrom, audio, video, scanner, plugdev and power groups. To achieve this run below command as root for each group.

# gpasswd -a user group

For example;

# gpasswd -a ertan plugdev

adds user ertan to group plugdev.

Manually editing /etc/group file as root, one can add one or more users to a specified group also.

# nano /etc/group




* It is seen that user1 and user2 are the members of audio,video and cdrom groups.
