Have you tried to use System Settings--->User Management to add   the 
new user to the relevant groups? I would use the groups that your 
regular user in in as a template for adding the new user to new groups, 
assuming you want the new user to have the same permissions and the 
regular user.

Remember to have any user log out and in again after making changes to 
their groups.
