"No, that's wrong. Use:
adduser username admin
The 'usermod' command above will remove that user from all groups but
'admin'. That's not quite what you want. You want them to stay in all
of the groups they are in, plus 'admin'."
Ah! That explains when someone (not this list) suggested I do that usermod
command to add myself to the "audio" group to fix my old laptop sound issue
(which is still not resolved, btw). I, of course, successfully removed
myself from the admin group (joy) and had to hack into the sudoers file and
Learn something new every day!
