    i found tht when adding a new user and using the adduser commandnot the useradd command it works, however you have to join some or all of the following (i joined all of these groups)
    adm cdrom floppy audio video plugdev scanner
    to do this wait for the prompt 'add user to other groups' (or something like that, the one after 'default group')
