Sound
sudo usermod -a -G audio username

nm-applet
The nm-applet gives insufficent permission errors when changing WiFi due to startxfce4 instead of using a display manager. This will fix it:

sudo vi /etc/polkit-1/rules.d/50-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.rules
polkit.addRule(function(action, subject) {
if (action.id.indexOf("org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.") == 0 && subject.isInGroup("myusername")) {
return polkit.Result.YES;
}
});

(must reboot to take effect)
