Um no, it isn't the right command. useradd creates users, use usermod to
modify them. Also the command 'groups' will show what groups you are in. So
to add yourself to plugdev you would need to do:
#:  user="dave";sudo usermod -G `groups |sed "s/^$user //;s/ /,/g"` $user

I think you're missing a ",plugdev" on the end there, aren't you? And why set $user manually, when the shell sets $USER for you? This command should read:

sudo usermod -G `groups |sed "s/^$USER //;s/ /,/g"`",plugdev" $USER
