Brief howto .............
to enable sudo for a non priveleged user
you will need to
1/ edit /etc/sudoers (you need root passwd to do so)
you will need to boot in safe mode (runlevel 1) from grub & create a
root password as below:
3/ add a line to /etc/sudoers ( run visudo) as below:
your_username ALL=(ALL) ALL
4/ reboot &
prepend sudo to all priveleged system commands.
You may need this explained in more detail ( as very brief).
