What is the question exactly? If you want to add a user to a group use

sudo adduser $USER auto
This will add the user you are currently using to the group "auto"

Configuring the real-time access for "audio" group users and applications

https://help.ubuntu.com/moin_static192/ubuntunew/img/alert.png Before adding a user to the audio group, please read about the implications of doing so (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Audio/TheAudioGroup).
Since Ubuntu 10.04 the permissions to enable real time access for "audio" group users are set in the file /etc/security/limits.d/audio.conf. In versions prior to 10.04 these settings were done in /etc/security/limits.conf
If for some reason you need to tweak something, look for these lines:
# generated by jackd's postinst. <<BR>> # Do not edit this file by hand, use <<BR>> # dpkg-reconfigure -p high jack <<BR>> # instead <<BR>> @audio - rtprio 99 <<BR>> @audio - memlock unlimited <<BR>> #@audio - nice -19 <<BR>>These value are suggested by http://jackaudio.org/faq. The memlock line determines how much of your memory can be locked by audio processes. Some recommend setting this as half of your total memory (RAM, in KB). The nice setting has been commented out with a purpose, according to one of the main authors of JACK allowing users to renice processes is not necessary (http://wiki.linuxmusicians.com/doku.php?id=system_configuration#limits.conf). Thanks to Scott Lavender for precision about the new file configuration.
Don't forget to add your username to the "audio" group (System - Administration - Users and Groups).

Now it ask me to do this and It want let. the command you gave did not work. Said it could not be find.

You confused me with the thread title "How to add user to auto group".
Use this instead to add yourself to the audio group

sudo adduser $USER audio
