if i log in as root, i can play cds, and listen to music perfectly fine . but when i log in with my account, i get drive error and it doesn't work.
this is what i was instructed to do, but it didn't work
useradd -c "john" -m -g users -G cdrom,audio -s /bin/bash john
viewing /etc/groups shows my name next to cdrom and audio, so why aren't they working?
