Hi Yves-Alexis,

How are you doing?

Just for the record, with GNOME you can go to
System->Administration->User and Groups and add user in those groups
in a easy way. It doesn't exhibit a list of groups or let users figure
out the group by themselves, but they show roles instead (eg: audio is
"Use audio devices").

Under the hood there's users-admin part of gnome-system-tools. It
seems that g-s-t is too much for Xfce so is there something that does
the same? If yes, could you write here a step by step like I did
above, please? We lack this kind of documentation (wiki.d.o is open to
receive such stuff) about Debian Desktop usage. Same deal for KDE,
anyone ?

thanks in advance,
