Default normal user do not have access to usb, and many other things


i usually use my linux system with root account. i think it is not
good, so i created a normal user account for myself. but i found that
i cannot access many system resources, like usb disk, battery
informatiion, etc.

i am already in these groups: disk,wheel,audio,video,usb,haldaemon,plugdev.

now, i cannot get notification when i plug a new usb device. my
battery gadget says battery information is not available.

all there stuffs works fine if i log in with root account.

Best Regards,
David Shen
