LinuxFilter : I seem to have lost sudo privileges in Ubuntu. How to fix please?
posted by mannequito to Computers & Internet (8 answers total)
About a month back I picked up an Asus eeepc and installed #!CrunchBang on it, which is a variation on Ubuntu. Sudo worked fine for a couple of weeks, but the other day I went to install something and received this message:
(username) is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.
Usual googling and message-board combing led to this solution
. But attempting to follow it, I enter my password after 'su -' and get a reply stating that the password is incorrect.
SO ... is this a catch-22, or has my password somehow been changed?
