If you know a user who has the privileges for audio and more, you can
check in which group he is with `groups <the_budy>`.  If you don't know
such a user, view the file /etc/group (cut -d: -f1 /etc/group).

And now for people lacking applications like g-s-t or kusers(?), the cli
tool usermod is for them of course :-)

usermod -aG audio,othergroup,... $USER

In which wiki page would you put information about the group handling?
