I' having a little 'technical' #problem while #adding #users to a @group on a #Lubuntu #server.

Why is it that users always have simular issues with \*ubuntu systems? The first time I looked at it was due to users that where not able to control their audio cards. What follows was always a permission issue. To be honest I have never seen such basic issues in other distro's
