All DEs: Adding a new user post install does not add them to the correct groups
Open, NormalPublic

Description

During installation, adding a user will add them to the following groups:

audio video cdrom dialout fuse users

see: https://github.com/getsolus/os-installer/blob/master/os_installer2/postinstall.py#L398

When adding a new user via the DE's respective control center it does not add them to the correct groups automatically.

$ groups temp
temp : temp
$ groups ninya
ninya : ninya dialout audio video cdrom users lpadmin scanner plugdev fuse sudo

This means that certain functionality does not work for new users added to the system (like audio!)

Seems similar on Budgie:

One of the test accounts was made with Budgie Control Center, and I think 'test' was created with useradd. I *think.* It was last week xD

Okay a missing oversight since forever then I'm guessing. The question is where do we handle this?
